Workforce sold to out-of-state staffing company

Workforce Employment Solutions of Farmington has announced that, as of March 15, it was acquired by Employment Control, Inc. (ECI), a North Carolina-based staffing company.

Workforce was established in 1994, and has grown to seven offices and two college Career Placement offices serving Ste. Genevieve, Perryville, Cape Girardeau, Portageville, Arnold and Steeleville, Ill., and surrounding communities.

"It was important to us to identify a buyer that shares the same values and company culture that we have built over the years," said Joe Rozier, vice president of Workforce Employment Solutions. "ECI has the staff and resources to provide increased service, technology and customer support to the hundreds of current Workforce companies and thousands of Workforce associates throughout the region."

Current Workforce president and founder, Marlene Brockmiller, will be stepping aside to pursue other business interests. Current vice president, Joe Rozier, will move into the market president role for ECI and continue to lead the local team as well as work with the ESI’s business development team.

"Joe has been with Workforce for more than 16 years and has been instrumental in strategic planning, sales and the day- to-day operations of Workforce. His knowledge of the industry and the region will be a tremendous asset to the ECI team," said Brockmiller. "Continuing our 19 year tradition of service excellence will be the main focus going forward."

Employment Control, Inc. headquartered in Shelby, N.C., operates through the Employment Staffing, Inc ("ESI"), Temporary Professionals, Inc ("TPI") and Talent Force brands in North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and Maryland. Its financial partners, Nashville-based Harbert Mezzanine and Claritas Capital, have jointly provided more than $350 million to fund acquisitions over the last 10 years, and say they are committed to providing resources for the continued growth of ECI. This is ESI's fourth transaction in 15 months as the company says it “continues an aggressive strategy of growth” in the mid-south and southeast.

"ECI acquired Workforce because it is the leader in its markets, has a culture of service excellence, and experienced leadership,” said Clay Bullock, CEO of ECI.

"I have a deep appreciation for the many relationships that have been so important to me and our organization throughout the years but I also leave it in the capable hands of a well-established team that deserve the opportunities that will come along with this partnership," says Brockmiller. "And I can't thank our customers enough for your many years of loyalty and trust in our team."
