HireQuest, Inc. Enters Definitive Agreement to Acquire TEC Staffing Services

GOOSE CREEK, SC / ACCESSWIRE / October 24, 2023 / HireQuest, Inc. (NASDAQ:HQI), a national franchisor of direct dispatch, executive search, and commercial staffing services, today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire TEC Staffing Services ("TEC") (, headquartered in Fort Smith, Arkansas. TEC's ten offices throughout Northwest and Central Arkansas provide light industrial, clerical, technical, and professional staffing services, and generated over $34 million in total revenue for the trailing 12-month period ended September 30, 2023. The offices will be converted to the Snelling franchise model.

Rick Hermanns, President and Chief Executive Officer of HireQuest, commented, "TEC Staffing Services has been a premier provider of staffing services serving Northwest and Central Arkansas for over 40 years and we believe this acquisition provides an excellent opportunity to expand our footprint and enhance the Snelling brand in this region. TEC is an ideal addition, strengthening our core staffing competencies and we look forward to welcoming their offices as part of the Snelling franchise family."

The Company believes its current operating infrastructure can support the addition of TEC's offices to the Snelling network without the need for incremental corporate headcount. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter subject to closing conditions. During the interim, all of TEC's offices will remain open for business without interruption.
