Tacoma-based Labor Ready acquired Skilled Services Corporation, a skilled construction trades staffing company, the company announced today. SSC has 21 locations around the country.
Labor Ready paid about $25.5 million for the Florida-based company.
The Tacoma staffing company first entered the skilled construction trades market in 2005 with its purchase of CLP Resources.
CLP has since seen significant growth, adding 21 branches to the 51 that Labor Ready purchased.
Steve Cooper, Labor Ready CEO, said SSC’s management team will stay in place. SSC President Mark Curtiss will head the SSC operations and report to Noel Wheeler, CEO of CLP Resources.
