Paramount Staffing Reaches Fast-Growing Southeast with Acquisition of TalentForce

NORTHBROOK, IL. — Sept. 13, 2019 — Paramount Staffing—a temporary staffing agency focused on industrial staffing—acquires TalentForce and expands its presence into the Southeast. The combined company will generate more than $200 million annually in revenue with nearly 250 full‐time employees serving more than 800 clients with 55 offices in 12 states.

“Our acquisition strategy has been to identify companies who focus on industrial staffing, operate in states which are rapidly growing, and most importantly match up with us culturally. We have found that partner with Talent Force,” commented Paramount President Matt Schubert.

With 31 additional offices, the acquisition creates a strong staffing arm for Paramount into North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois and New Hampshire. TalentForce specialties include Light Industrial and Administrative/Clerical.

Paramount Staffing and Talent Force are aligned culturally, geographically, and in our business model to provide outstanding customer service to our clients and employees,” added Schubert. “We are very excited about this partnership and the opportunities it will present.”

Both Paramount Staffing and TalentForce will operate jointly. Talent Force’s Chief Operating Officer, Bobby Walker, will continue running Talent Force and all current team members will remain in place.

“This partnership will provide more opportunities to build on established customer relationships and resources to create new ones,” commented Walker.

After Paramount Staffing in June 2018, Talent Force marks the second acquisition in the United States by Proman.

“We are pleased to welcome the Talent Force team in the Paramount Staffing family; this acquisition brings Paramount Staffing a very talented staff of veterans that will be led by Bobby Walker, COO of Talent Force. Bobby has been extremely instrumental in the development of Talent Force over the last 20 years and Matt and I really look forward to working with him and his team,” concluded Gilles Tanneur, Chief Executive Officer of Proman North America.
