Belcan provides engineering, technical recruiting, and staffing services to clients in the aviation, consumer products, and manufacturing industries, among others. Its Belcan Engineering division offers design engineering, engineering analysis, and computer modeling to customers such as Lockheed Martin and UTC. The company also offers recruiting services -- including interviewing, screening, and workforce management -- to fill openings for highly skilled technical personnel through Belcan TechServices. BelFlex Staffing Network supplies light industrial and clerical employees to clients. Family-owned Belcan, founded in 1958 by Ralph Anderson, operates some 70 offices primarily in the US.
The company operates through three divisions: Belcan Engineering, Belcan TechServices, and BelFlex Staffing Network.
Belcan Engineering provides design engineering, engineering analysis, and computer modeling, as well as advanced manufacturing techniques. It offers engineering and automation design/build services to industry leaders in the Aviation, Energy, Marine Propulsion, Heavy Equipment, and Consumer Products sectors, handling all projects in a secure environment.
Belcan TechServices provides recruitment support and staffing for highly skilled technical employees. It sources, interviews, screens, and assigns technical professionals across most industries. This division offers contract personnel, direct-hire recruiting, onsite workforce management, and payroll services.
BelFlex Staffing Network specializes in offering customized options to the light-industrial market, such as temporary and contract staffing, peak season/high volume staffing, and contingent workforce management.
Ohio-based Belcan primarily serves clients nationwide, as well as abroad. It operates more than 65 offices worldwide.
Sales and Marketing
Belcan, which serves several sectors, counts customers such as aerospace giant UTC and defense leader Lockheed Martin among its list of clients. Belcan Engineering focuses on work in the automotive, aviation, consumer, energy, heavy equipment, industrial, lighting, marine, and medical markets.
While Belcan is privately owned, the company reports that its annual revenue reached $680 million in fiscal 2013, up from $450 million in 2009.
Looking to give the unit its own identity, Belcan in 2014 separated its $115 million staffing division to operate as a sister company under the newly rebranded name BelFlex Staffing Network. The network offers light-industrial flexible staffing -- with 5,000 employees and 25 offices -- to companies in the Midwest and Southeast. The staffing company was initially built from Belcan's 2009 purchase of four staffing companies in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
Mergers and Acquisitions
In 2013, Belcan extended its reach into the UK through its purchase of Energy Resources Management Ltd. (ERM). As a result, Belcan provides high-voltage electrical engineering personnel to major Distribution Network Operators across the UK.
