Top Temporary U.S. Engineering Staffing Firms Generate $4.4 Billion in Sales

LOS ALTOS, Calif. – July 31, 2009 –The twenty largest providers of temporary staffing in engineering generated $4.4 billion of U.S. revenue in 2008, making up just under half of the $7.3 billion market. Aerotek, a division of Allegis Group, is the largest in engineering with an estimated 10% market share. Staffing Industry Analysts defines engineering to include: technicians, highly skilled engineers, plant operators and designers. Staffing firms in this market typically place personnel in aerospace, automotive, oil and gas or manufacturing industries. These estimates of revenue exclude non-temporary staffing and revenue generated outside the U.S.

According to Tony Gregoire, Sr. Research Analyst, Staffing Industry Analysts, “By our estimates, the ten largest firms represented 48% of the market in 2008 compared to 53% in 2007, suggesting some fragmentation in the market. Of the largest five companies listed below, only PDS generated the majority of its U.S. staffing revenue in this category.”
