Randstad US, Professionals Rebrands The Mergis Group’s Engineering Practice to Randstad Engineering

Staffing Firm Aligns Engineering Brands to Enhance Customer & Client Services

BOSTON, November 5, 2012 – Randstad US, Professionals announced today the rebranding of The Mergis Group’s engineering practice to Randstad Engineering to strengthen and broaden their total service offerings and expertise to both clients and candidates. Mergis’ engineering practice, acquired by Randstad through its purchase of SFN Group in 2011, will join Randstad Engineering, which focuses on providing engineering and technical staffing and recruiting solutions in the automotive, manufacturing, energy, engineering/construction, and telecommunications industries for more than 24 years.

“We are very excited to align these two companies and expand our service capabilities to meet growing talent demands,” said Richard Zambacca, president of Randstad Engineering. “Randstad Engineering is part of the second largest HR services provider in the world and this combination will only enhance our network of experts that crosses industries and geographies. This is a critical step as the growing skills gap for engineering talent continues to widen— increasing the pressure for U.S. companies to find the best engineers to fill their mission critical projects. We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues to Randstad Engineering and providing a broader business scope to our clients and candidates as one brand—all while maintaining the type of quality service that our stakeholders have grown accustomed to.”

The engineering rebrand will increase Randstad’s footprint by making it a definitive leader in the engineering staffing space. As demand for engineering continues to grow, the combination of these two expert companies will help organizations meet current and future market demands in a highly competitive industry. The new market positioning is also a part of a broader effort by Randstad to enable greater access to Randstad’s global network of HR solutions, recruiting and hiring expertise.
