Essential Staffing is proud to announce the recent acquisition of New Start Personnel of Barrie, ON. New Start Personnel has supplied Drivers, Skilled Trades and Office Staff to clients throughout Simcoe County since 2005. This acquisition is part of a growth strategy for Revolution Staffing and Essential Staffing as we seek to grow our base of business at Revolution Staffing in the Driver Market and through Essential Staffing in the Light Industrial and Direct Hire Placement business.
Revolution Staffing was founded in 2005 by Dave MacDonald and continues its singular focus on providing Truck Drivers to Transportation Companies. Essential Staffing, her sister company, was founded in 2017 and focuses on Direct Hire / Permanent Placement and Skilled Trades in the Light Industrial Market. Both serve clients from offices in Brampton, Cambridge and Barrie, ON.
“As I interviewed potential partners to carry on the work I have started at New Start Personnel, I found Dave to be like-minded about how to treat our people and Customers and appreciate his employee first approach to the business. Knowing that my drivers and employees continue to have an advocate as an employer gave me a great sense of comfort as I transition out of this business that I have poured my life into over the last nearly 20 years” said Jacques. “The change in ownership is effective May 27th, and while the changes will be largely invisible to the staff we want to make sure we are transparent about the transition.”
Dave MacDonald said, “New Start Personnel is going to give us an opportunity to tap into the New Driver Market to help our clients source the best recent graduates from the Best Driving Schools in Ontario, while doing what we have always done in the Professional Driver Market matching Employees Wants and Desires with Employers Needs.” He goes on to say, “For Essential Staffing this opportunity opens up relationships in the Light Industrial Market to support many clients and candidates in the Barrie area.”
We are super excited to welcome the team of employees that have been working with New Start Personnel over the past decade to Essential Staffing. Our mandate remains unchanged helping Employees find the Jobs they Want, while helping Companies find the Employees they Need.
