NEW YORK, January 4, 2016 – The TemPositions Group of Companies, one of the country’s oldest and largest regional staffing firms has acquired certain assets of 28-year-old Long Island based Opus Staffing and Opus Scientific. Opus Staffing specializes in direct hire, temporary and temp-to-hire placement of administrative, HR, accounting and finance, marketing and creative professionals. Opus Scientific places laboratory technicians, research associates, documentation specialists, biostatisticians and other professionals in the life sciences, biotech, and related scientific-intensive fields.
The administrative support and non-scientific temporary staffing business and direct hire services will be operated under the name Opus Staffing; and the Scientific market will be serviced under the name Opus Scientific. All operations will be relocated to TemPositions’ Melville NY offices located at 20 Broad Hollow Road. Phone numbers will remain the same.
“Adding a prestigious firm like Opus helps to solidify our position in the Long Island marketplace as the one stop solution for any staffing need” said TemPositions’ President and CEO, James A. Essey. “It also enters us into the Scientific niche, in which we have long been interested.”
Opus staff members Dawn Faggiano, Jennifer Rampolla, and Mary Meyer will join The TemPositions Group of Companies and continue to service their clients. Opus founder and staffing industry veteran Barbara Gebhardt will serve as a consultant to TemPositions as part of this transaction.
The transaction will offer current Opus clients access to TemPositions’ award winning suite of electronic tools which makes doing business so much easier versus competitors, including online ordering, electronic time capture and approvals, automated billing, and 24/7 reporting. Besides technology tools, field employees will gain access to TemPositions’ expanded benefits package allowing us to attract and retain top talent. “I am very excited about this move” said Barbara Gebhardt. “It enables it to continue serving our clients with the high quality staff they expect, while allowing us to utilize leading-edge technology and provide our talent with an industry-leading benefits package.”
