New York, New York (January 15, 2016) - Active Staffing Services, a leading provider of temporary staffing associates, entered into a binding agreement to acquire the assets of Blass Employment Corporation, a temporary employment staffing company dedicated to servicing the Industrial market since 1980, to enhance its position in servicing existing loyal clients and generate new business growth in The New York and New Jersey markets.
The purchase of Blass Employment Corporation, based in Manhattan, New York, further increases Active Staffing Service's share of the Industrial segment and is the second acquisition made in the past year. "The addition of Blass to the Active Staffing organization has opened us up to servicing various segments of the Industrial niche that we were not previously exposed to," said Elliot Elzweig, President of Active Staffing Services. "The acquisition has also provided Active with an applicant pool which is expected to relieve the pressure on our existing quality temporary personnel," added Tina Acker, Senior Branch Manager of Active Staffing Services.
"A relationship was formed to help Active extend its presence in the New York and New Jersey markets," commented John V. Garofalo, Executive Vice President, Active Staffing Services. "Our large corporate office and robust staff will allow Active greater flexibility in servicing both Blass and Active Staffing clients."
Active will leverage Blass's long-term business relationships providing top quality light Industrial (skilled and unskilled) labor to the New York & New Jersey markets. Active is in the process of integrating Blass's Applicant and Client base with Active's. The integration of both companies will take place over the next month. "Our newly acquired and existing client base will receive the same high quality employees and service, which they have come to expect with a seamless transition," stated Elliot Elzweig, President of Active Staffing Services.
Blass Employment Corporation, will continue to operate under the Active Staffing Services banner, and is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Active Staffing Services.
