SCST, a San Diego-based professional engineering firm announced that it has acquired Talentscale LLC, also based in the San Diego area. Talentscale is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) that has approximately 120 employees and provides services including staff augmentation, aircraft maintenance and logistics, and technical services primarily to defense clients. The company is a prime contract holder on the Navy's SeaPort-e vehicle.
Bill Ulmer, Executive VP of SCST explains the synergy expected to come from the deal: "Both the construction and environmental markets often utilize a staffing service to provide skilled and trained employees on a project-by-project basis where new, full-time employees are often not economical and can be time consuming for general contractors and engineering firms to recruit and train. We are frequently asked to fill these positions and now we have the means to do so at a very aggressive price point with an extremely talented group of recruiters. Our clients are ecstatic."
Deal terms were not disclosed.
