Man working on industrial plant

“LEAD has provided Combination Welders, Industrial Construction Plumbers, Heavy Equipment Operators and Millwright Mechanics for the past 4 years. LEAD was an integral part of the Multi- Million Dollar Family Resort built in Central California last year. LEAD provided 90% of the Industrial Plumbers used by our company.

In the early stages of the resort project we were using 3 other staffing providers. However LEAD became our primary provider because of the magnificent efforts in filling our open positions.  LEAD made numerous visits during the project to conduct safety visits, deliver supplies to their employees and to just ensure that they stay abreast of the needs of our project. From the day I placed the call that we needed assistance with a ramp up, the LEAD Team was on it and where able to provide support immediately. I highly recommend LEAD as a resource partner for any of your projects.”
