Rethinking Temporary Personnel

KB Staffing is so much more than a temporary employment agency. As a full service staffing firm, KB has been involved in helping large companies in the greater Winter Haven/Lakeland metropolitan area reach their goals. Recently a well-known local company purchased a large facility in Auburndale. The property had previously been used as a juice plant cold facility, but had been vacant for some time. To meet the standards of its new tenant, the 5.7 million ft³ facility required a complete rehab and remodel. KB Staffing played an instrumental role in the process with a qualified workforce on site immediately.

Hiring one industrial contractor for the entire project would have gotten the job done, but would have cost top dollar. Our client got the project done to their specifications while saving significantly on the renovation costs by using KB Staffers to do a lot of the work. With KB Staffing’s flexibility, both skilled and semi-skilled tradesmen worked on the renovation. We assigned applicable skills to applicable jobs within the project to ensure high quality work while keeping costs down.

Everything had to be renovated, including the building’s exterior and grounds. There was demolition work inside to remove old cold panels. Cleaning and replacing key machinery required attention to detail and an array of skill levels to ensure standards were maintained. A food-grade facility has higher requirements than a typical warehouse and transport site. KB Staffing had employees on the job with the experience necessary to complete the work as needed.

The big advantage of KB Staffing is that our temporary employees are qualified and experienced in a variety of trades. Our client did not have to shop for demolition companies or landscape personnel. Our pre-qualified workforce includes experienced warehouse and construction workers. Our landscape crew has extensive experience in all facets of exterior remodeling and grounds maintenance.

By using KB Staffing to renovate the large industrial facility, our client got a high quality job done at a fraction of the cost of hiring a traditional contracting firm. KB Staffing is proud to be a member of the Bartow/Lakeland/Winter Haven community. Every member of our workforce of temporary employees was pleased to be a part of this important project for the Auburndale economy and felt the pride of a job well done.

Putting local people to work and helping local companies meet their goals: KB Staffing.
