Ben Milsom and Gary Higgins started GBRS in 2012.

GBRS was originally a construction recruitment company, which diversified in 2014 to supply warehouse, factory and administration workers to various clients throughout the UK.

Director, Ben, said: “After a number of years renting offices at Pure Offices in St Georges, the opportunity to purchase the premises in Milton Road came about in the summer of 2018 and we jumped at it.

“We’ve both grown up in Weston and know what a great area Milton is and the other businesses in the area have made us feel very welcome.

“We were looking to invest in the business and continue to grow, and our new premises will help facilitate that, being three times the size of our old office.”

England and Bath rugby player Sam Underhill opened their new office in Milton Road.
