“Exceeding client expectations is our goal first and foremost,” Smith said. “We are passionate about excellence, and we are passionate about helping companies build their businesses with the most important asset – the human asset. Without a good team, you cannot build a strong company.”

With a strong focus on teamwork and client satisfaction, we are committed to delivering exceptional talent solutions, one placement at a time. Our process is all about building relationships. We get to know every client and business we work with to build a cooperative, cohesive team that will meet your needs and exceed them.

But the FTS value proposition extends beyond the business realm. Brandon Smith, the owner of FTS, strongly desires to be an integral part of the fabric of the communities he serves. The company’s approach to its employees and clients reflects this dedication to community involvement. FTS values long-term client relationships, motivated sales and recruiting teams, and strategic planning that benefits the company and the community.

A Trio of Expert Brands Under the FTS Umbrella

Flexicrew Technical Services is not a one-size-fits-all company. It operates three brands under its umbrella, each specializing in specific industries and talent solutions.

Flexicrew Technical Services: This is the flagship brand of FTS, providing comprehensive technical staffing solutions and talent acquisition across various industries, including Oil and Gas, Engineering, Chemical, Aerospace, Manufacturing, Nuclear, and more.

Flexblue Staffing: If you’re looking for light industrial skill trades, Flexblue Staffing is the brand to turn to. From temporary to full-time employees and skilled to unskilled labor, Flexblue Staffing excels in connecting skilled workers with the right companies to meet their unique needs.

Tech Serv: Operating primarily in New Orleans, Tech Serv is another arm of FTS that focuses on talent acquisition. While it goes to market as FTS and Flex Blue in other regions, Tech Serv remains essential to the company’s growth and success. Tech Serv was merged with FTS in December 2022.
