Client Story

TriMech is fortunate to work with clients from Maine to Florida and out to Arkansas, offering a range of engineering solutions. This week's client story showcases how TriMech Staffing helped our client fill an empty role for their expanding business quickly and with someone who had buckets of experience.

This story is an example of a company that was able to adapt to the changes 2020 had brought them.  They are now busier than ever due to their creative thinking and courage to explore new business strategies.

The Challenge

Several months ago, this client approached us in need of a strong Mechanical Designer. They had just opened a new manufacturing plant and needed some very specific talent for the new location. Time was a factor and they didn't want to go through the traditional candidate search and filter out piles of non-qualified applicants. Since TriMech was their provider for engineering software, support and training, they looked to us to find them the industry-specific talent they needed.

Understanding Our Client's Needs

This ideal person they were looking for needed to be able to manage a hybrid engineering and manufacturing role that understood engineering design, design for manufacturing and custom machine programming. Utilizing the TriMech Staffing Team offered them an edge on this position since we have access to talent that other firms may be unable to reach. 

We took some time to identify and qualify the position in detail. Upon this comprehensive review, we discovered that this role matched one of our recent candidates that had just completed a long-term assignment for a different large manufacturing client.

Experienced engineers are our specialty

Working With TriMech Staffing

TriMech presented the candidate to the client immediately. The candidate’s resume and capabilities discussed over the phone interview matched the client's needs exactly. The client requested an onsite interview the following week. The outcome of that interview proved what we suspected may occur, the client was thoroughly impressed by the candidate’s unique skill set and relevant work history.

In addition to a great resume, TriMech Staffing also provided client recommendations on this candidate. These recommendations came directly from the Director of Manufacturing and Engineering Manager of the former company where the candidate’s assignment had just ended. You see, that large Manufacturing client was unable to convert any of their contractors to full-time employees due to this pandemic, so a reliable resource was returned to us when the company was forced to downsize. This reciprocal relationship we build with our clients gives us the unique ability to help candidates find their next role without the annoyance of working with firms who are not aware of their skills and relevancy to this industry. This candidate had an amazing work ethic, dedication and skillset and was able to be presented at exactly the right time due to TriMech’s collaboration and communication with these manufacturing clients.

The Results

In the end, the client extended an offer to the candidate and gave the TriMech Staffing Team a glowing review for obtaining such critical talent so quickly. For this client, using an industry expert gave them access to the right talent that was tailored to their custom needs. The client felt our solution was ideal and believed the support would offer a competitive approach to their custom needs.
