Link Staffing Services of Norfolk Hosts Grand Opening

Feb 28, 2011

Norfolk, Virginia - (February 28, 2011) -- Link Staffing Services of Norfolk hosted its grand opening last month at the company’s office located at 5812 Poplar Hall Drive. The Norfolk office is part of a national franchise organization that provides flexible staffing and productivity solutions.

“There are a lot of great companies here in the Hampton Roads area, and our goal is to provide them with smart staffing solutions that give them a competitive edge and increase their productivity,” said franchise manager E. Davis Kiger.  “When they have unexpected changes in their workforce demand, we’re here to fill that gap."

Kiger, who has managed staffing agencies in the Hampton Roads area for the past 30 years, said his strong ties to the community have been instrumental in quickly building both his client and field staff worker base.  On their first day in business, not only did Kiger and his team register new personnel; they also had field staff working at client sites.

“We are thrilled to have Davis and his team on board,” said Link Staffing president Frank Mastalski.  “He has a long tenure in the staffing industry and local businesses will benefit from the invaluable knowledge and level of customer service that his team is able to provide.”

The event, which included a ribbon cutting ceremony, was attended by many of Link’s top executives including Mastalski and co-founders Bill and Karen Pitts.  Victoria Wilson, customer service representative for the Norfolk Link office, also assisted with the ceremony.  Local attendees included Vice Mayor Anthony Burfoot and Diane Raihle with the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce.

“Our mission at Link is to get each client to be our advocate, and this office is doing a great job in that area,” said Bill Pitts.  “They have this key ingredient, along with a great work ethic, so I have no doubt that they will be successful.”

Link Staffing personnel perform skilled trades, light industrial work, general labor and clerical assignments.  They work on both short and long-term projects in temporary to fulltime positions.  And all Link personnel undergo a comprehensive screening process before being assigned to a client site.
