TrueBlue and The Work Connection join forces, expand customer reach

TrueBlue, Inc. has recently acquired The Work Connection (TWC), a St. Paul-based light industrial staffing provider founded in 1986 with 37 branches located predominantly in the Midwest.

TWC has an Alexandria office at 507 22nd Avenue East, Suite 7. Its new name is Spartan Staffing, A TrueBlue Company.

As the two companies join forces, TWC’s operations will be merged with those of TrueBlue’s Spartan Staffing. The combined organization will expand the reach of both companies and make it easier for customers to do business.

TrueBlue CEO Steve Cooper said the combination is a good fit because both companies share a commitment to service excellence, operate in many of the same industries, and have minimal overlap in branch offices.

“We are excited about the addition of TWC’s talented employees and expertise to TrueBlue and Spartan Staffing,” Cooper said. “TWC has a successful track record of delivering specialized staffing solutions to customers for more than 25 years, and together we will continue to serve our customers and put people to work.”

TWC co-founder Jeffrey Wold will join TrueBlue as part of the management team.

“We are confident our customers will find that this new combined organization will be a more powerful resource for their business,” Cooper said.
