Houston, Texas (PRWEB) February 13, 2008
Longtime national staffing company Talent Tree (http://www.talenttree.com) kicked off 2008 with its acquisition of CalStaff, a Sacramento-based staffing company. The sale included CalStaff's main staffing division, in addition to their specialty divisions: LawStaff, GraphXStaff, CalStaffMed, CalStaffIT and AccountableStaff. Together these divisions serve general staffing needs as well as specialty areas in the Sacramento and northern California area.
Talent Tree saw the acquisition as a perfect complement to its current Sacramento offices. "We've been interested in expanding into niche specialty markets and CalStaff's reputation for delivering high-value service made them an obvious choice for bringing on board the Talent Tree family," said Michael Manser, VP of Human Capital Development at Talent Tree. While CalStaff's specialty divisions bring something new to Talent Tree's offerings, the synergies between the two companies are obvious; both have been dedicated to providing high quality staffing services for over 30 years and have earned reputations for outstanding customer service.
Founded in 1970 by Lee and Cecilia Landry, CalStaff grew into the area's oldest and largest independent staffing firm. All 15 CalStaff staff members will remain as part of the Talent Tree team. CalStaff's name will change to Talent Tree, while LawStaff, GraphXStaff and AccountableStaff names will remain unchanged under the Talent Tree umbrella.
Founded in Houston, TX in 1976, Talent Tree provides comprehensive staffing services for a wide variety of industries, including banking and finance, communications, healthcare, manufacturing and retail. Today Talent Tree employs more than 35,000 temporary associates and approximately 250 staff employees annually through a network of over 65 offices in 23 states. These resources, as well as strategic corporate partnerships, enable its 4,000 active clients nationwide to increase staff productivity, concentrate on core competencies and maximize financial efficiency.
