Staffing leaders combined strengths to expand their service areas and expertise throughout the Gulf South and nationwide.

Metairie, Louisiana – April 28, 2023 – Flexicrew Technical Services (FTS), known for their expertise in providing the Gulf South region as well as clients nationwide with custom-tailored technical staffing and executive search services, is proud to announce their merger with Technical Employment Services, Inc. (TECH SERV) of New Orleans, LA, effective December 31, 2022.

TECH SERV has been providing the greater New Orleans area with professional staffing solutions and human resources services for more than three decades.

Founder and President of FTS, Brandon Smith, is greatly anticipating the growth that will come from the merger as well as the symbiotic relationship that will result from combining the companies’ respective strengths.

“I believe that we are two companies who are dynamic on their own but can be so much more together,” Smith said. “I am excited to be merging with TECH SERV. There is such an alignment of philosophies, goals and vision, and I know that together we will bring superior value, service and expertise to our combined customers throughout the Gulf South region and across the nation.”

Former owner of TECH SERV, Bob Vanderbrook, sees the potential of the merger and all that it will do to bolster the strength of TECH SERV’s client services. That vision was what initially led Vanderbrook to choose FTS to usher his company to a greater future. Bob’s son Scott serves as the vice president of the newly created company and will continue the family business in a new generation.

FTS and TECH SERV will continue to operate under their current brands for the immediate future. The day-to-day operations of both companies will remain constant to ensure a seamless experience for customers.
