Triad staffing firm acquires High Point company
Bradley officials said Southern Technical will operate as a subsidiary of Bradley.
As part of the acquisition, former Southern Technical Recruiters owner Bill Roberts will move from his offices at 2640 Willard Dairy Road, Suite 100, toBradley’s offices located in Suite 104, said company CEO Darren Bradley, adding that Roberts is selling his suite.
Bradley said Southern Technical Recruiters was an attractive acquisition because the company specializes in permanent “direct” job placement services for technical positions, mostly in manufacturing.
The capabilities of Southern Technical Recruiters will complement those of Bradley Personnel, which mostly focuses on temporary staffing services for general labor, administrative and clerical positions.
“We wanted to get into the direct-placement market heavier than we are now and supply the demand for technically skilled employees," Bradley said. “Southern Technical Recruiters has a lot of (expertise placing) people who have technical skills, not necessarily management level people, but more of your on-the-floor working people like an operator who really knows how to run a machine or a maintenance technician who can read blueprints."
Founded in 1998 by Darren Bradley, Bradley Personnel has five offices across the Triad, including locations in Asheboro, Winston-Salem, Greensboro and Lexington.
