BOSTON, Nov.5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Randstad US, Professionals announced
today the rebranding of The Mergis Group's engineering practice to Randstad
Engineering to strengthen and broaden their total service offerings and
expertise to both clients and candidates. Mergis' engineering practice,
acquired by Randstad through its purchase of SFN Group in 2011, will join
Randstad Engineering, which focuses on providing engineering and technical
staffing and recruiting solutions in the automotive, manufacturing, energy,
engineering/construction, and telecommunications industries for more than 24
years.

"We are very excited to align these two companies and expand our service
capabilities to meet growing talent demands," said Richard Zambacca, president
of Randstad Engineering. "Randstad Engineering is part of the second largest
HR services provider in the world and this combination will only enhance our
network of experts that crosses industries and geographies. This is a critical
step as the growing skills gap for engineering talent continues to widen—
increasing the pressure for U.S. companies to find the best engineers to fill
their mission critical projects. We look forward to welcoming our new
colleagues to Randstad Engineering and providing a broader business scope to
our clients and candidates as one brand—all while maintaining the type of
quality service that our stakeholders have grown accustomed to."

The engineering rebrand will increase Randstad's footprint by making it a
definitive leader in the engineering staffing space. As demand for engineering
continues to grow, the combination of these two expert companies will help
organizations meet current and future market demands in a highly competitive
industry. The new market positioning is also a part of a broader effort by
Randstad to enable greater access to Randstad's global network of HR
solutions, recruiting and hiring expertise.
