North Salt Lake-based Ascend Staffing has acquired Riverside Staffing Solutions, based in Davenport, Iowa, and serving the Quad Cities area of eastern Iowa and western Illinois. The acquisition includes two other Iowa locations and gives Ascend more than 40 offices in 14 states, including Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and Washington.
Founded in 1969, Ascend specializes in staffing the light industrial, non-clinical hospital, warehousing, and clerical industries, the same industries that Riverside serves.
Ascend said the deal closed in August and Riverside Staffing Solutions will take on the Ascend Staffing brand. Terms of the transaction were not announced.
