In 2018, a California-based semi-truck chassis maker needed to grow fast. The US market alone demands 95,000 to 284,000 new semi-trucks each year, and demand continues to grow.
The firm needed 100 workers right away, so they picked up the phone and called SkillsetGroup staffing and consulting company.
These are the kinds of challenges we love at SkillsetGroup. Right away, our recruiting team pulled up their sleeves and got to work. We immediately started our plant safety walkthroughs and management interviews; assigned on-site representation to the plant; and got to work finding talented, reliable assemblers, yard goat drivers, forklift drivers, engineers and other professionals.
We accepted the sunk cost of expanding our recruiting team because we knew we could transform this manufacturer.
And boy, did we deliver.
Within three months, SkillsetGroup had 100 contractors on the payroll at the chassis plant. We handle their payroll, benefits, plant safety monitoring, competitive-rate insurance and all the other tasks that make SkillsetGroup’s service coveted by decision makers in the heavy industrial market.
In fact, the chassis plant managers were so happy with our candidates, they converted more than half of them to full-time positions, and most of those are still working there.
In addition, we still have 30-40 SkillsetGroup contract recruits working at the plant at any given time.
SkillsetGroup’s stellar service positioned the manufacturing company to weather the tight-as-a-drum post-pandemic labor market. Now, according to the manufacturer’s own reports, this company is the world’s largest producer of intermodal chassis and has newly renovated its East Coast plant.
This kind of success can be yours, too. Let SkillsetGroup be the solid chassis that empowers your business to keep on truckin’ to the top of YOUR market.
