History

AP Biosciences was recently acquired by Black Diamond Networks in December of 2018. This strategic acquisition has been an excellent opportunity for both organizations, as well as for our client and candidates particularly in the rapidly expanding life sciences & technology market in Massachusetts. 

AP Biosciences is proud to be part of Black Diamond Networks, whose business approach is centered on their customer service philosophy. BDN was incorporated in 1999 as a privately-held, Boston-area IT, contract and direct hire staffing company.  A national recruiting capability was launched in 2005 to service the national market for contract engineering resources, and it rapidly grew to become the largest segment of the company’s services.  2007 saw the advent of a national IT contract services group focusing on the supply of top-end SAP, Oracle and Peoplesoft consultants for the IT ERP market.  Around the same time, Black Diamond began servicing into the FDA-regulated industry market supplying Regulatory Affairs, Quality and Validation consultants to Life Sciences and Medical Device companies.  Today, this service organization represents the fastest growing segment of our business.  Black Diamond has enjoyed continuous year-over-year growth since its inception. Our two owners have been involved in all phases of the staffing industry for over 30 years.  Their core philosophy is to treat each customer and each contractor as if they are Black Diamond’s and AP Bio’s only customer and to treat company staff the same way.  Black Diamond’s and AP Bio’s team is comprised of veteran contract and permanent staffing industry recruiters and account executives with established experience in the specific skill and market segments described above.
