Aerotek, a unit of staffing powerhouse Allegis Group, offers commercial and technical staffing services throughout North America. Through several divisions, Aerotek staffs workers such as engineers, mechanics, scientists, and technical professionals, as well as administrative staff members, general laborers, and tradespeople. It also provides training and support services. Along with aerospace, auto, and engineering companies, Aerotek's clients include companies from the construction, energy, manufacturing, health care, and finance industries. Established as a small staffing firm in 1983, Aerotek now operates from more than 200 non-franchised offices in the US and Canada, as well as parts of Europe.
Aerotek has expanded its operations over the years through organic growth and acquisitions, especially in niche markets such as the biotechnology, health care, clinical research, chemical, and plastics sectors. Despite the economic downturn, demand within these industries has been consistent, along with engineering, giving Aerotek some continuity during the recession. Aerotek has also widened its client focus to include the niche market of minority and woman-owned companies.
