The Eastridge Group of Staffing Companies Acquires Assets of Abigail Abbott Staffing Services, Inc.

SAN DIEGO, (Oct. 22, 2009) – —The Eastridge Group of Staffing Companies announces acquisition of certain assets of full-service Orange County-based staffing business, Abigail Abbott Staffing Services, Inc. (Abigail Abbott), official October 12 for an undisclosed amount.

“Abigail Abbott has an incredible legacy and is known for providing the highest level of service to its clients,” says Seth Stein, executive vice president of General Services at Eastridge, overseeing business integration for the deal. “The way they run their business is nicely aligned with Eastridge values.”

The transaction forms a new subsidiary under the Eastridge brand: Abbott Staffing Group. Abbott Staffing Group retains Shelle Kulik, former Abigail Abbott president, whose new role with Abbott Staffing Group is managing director. Abbott Staffing Group also welcomes many other former Abigail Abbott staff members.

The combination of Abigail Abbott’s Orange County expertise and client base along with Eastridge’s resources and experience will be of substantial benefit to Abbott Staffing Group. Eastridge acquires the legacy of the Abbott brand and in turn fuses it with its highly specialized staffing units.

Abbott Staffing Group continues to capitalize on Abigail Abbott’s prior expertise in staffing temporary and direct-hire positions for clients in accounting, administrative, culinary and light industrial, while at the same time adding specialized services of the Eastridge brand.

Added specialties for Abbott Staffing Group may include construction, conventions and hospitality, human resources, legal, medical/health care and telecommunications staffing. Backed by Eastridge, Abbott Staffing Group is also fully equipped to offer clients powerful back-office support, including services such as electronic timekeeping, customized reporting and invoicing, and financing large accounts receivables.

Abbott Staffing Group will have a strong presence in Orange County with expanded geographical reach as a result of Eastridge’s Southern California headquarters and presence in the Southwest. Stay tuned for new office location information in the near future.

“Abigail Abbott is a household staffing name in Orange County,” says Mike Santos, vice president of business development and new ventures for Eastridge. “Abigail Abbott’s business model will blend perfectly with both Eastridge’s boutique and large-volume staffing experience. And Orange County will be a prime market in the years to come, so this is a natural expansion for Eastridge.”
