Forge Industrial Staffing was founded in 1995 by Richard DeTamble and John Janisch who had a vision of a different kind of staffing company – one that was built on relationships and focused on the needs of the industrial client. This unwavering focus, coupled with a top-notch staff, has been the basis for our success.
Since opening our first office in Elkhart, Indiana, Forge has grown at a tremendous pace and now operates 13 offices throughout Michigan and Indiana. Each office is run by a management team with the expertise and authority to make decisions best for their clientele. Forge has been in each of its markets for over 17 years or more giving us the advantage of knowing the intricacies of the industrial landscape in those markets from both the client and employee’s perspectives.
We are unique in the industry because of our commitment to industrial clients. Our pledge is to be the most responsive staffing supplier in the industry. Because we are committed to our customers and are responsive to their needs, we will always be in a position to deliver unsurpassed levels of service. In an industry that is notorious for high turnover, our sales and management team have unprecedented tenure. The average length of service with Forge for our staffing consultants, managers and directors is over 12 years. In fact, our team has almost 360 years of combined experience focusing on the industrial client!
