Manufacturing & Engineering

The Richmond Group USA’s nationally recognized  Manufacturing focused recruiting team draws upon the lessons learned from 50 years of recruiting top talent within the talent short Manufacturing and Engineering markets.
With continuing Baby Boomer retirements, the team understands the existing and growing void of highly skilled technical and leadership talent within the world of engineering and production. Complicating matters, for the last 20 years, many students with an aptitude for math and science have chosen to go into computer science instead of more traditional engineering fields.
While many stories highlight the flight of manufacturers from our country we know that manufacturing remains very strong within The United States. While, at the same time, great talent becomes increasingly difficult to find and hire.
Over the years, our manufacturing team’s searches have expanded from the traditional engineering and operations management positions to quality, continuous improvement (Lean Manufacturing; Six Sigma), supply chain (purchasing, materials management, logistics), Technical Sales and Account Management, and Human Resources.
TRG has the significant experience, relationships and knowledge to locate the more integrated manufacturing talent needed to succeed in today’s global markets. We place great candidates with great companies and position you to succeed with your new organization.
