Belcan Staffing Solutions Spins Off Into BelFlex Staffing Network

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

The Staffing Solutions Division of Belcan Corporation, located in Chattanooga, has been rebranded BelFlex Staffing Network and launched as a sister company to Belcan. While Ohio-based Belcan Corporation continues to focus on providing engineering solutions to clients around the world, BelFlex will be focused on becoming an industry leader in providing flexible staffing solutions to light industrial customers in North America. 

“We are excited about positioning ourselves to serve our customers and employees better than ever before," said Belcan Chairman Candace McCaw.  "We have an extraordinary culture built on integrity and an incredible dedication to the success of both our customers and employees. We are committed to investing in this culture and providing BelFlex with the resources it needs to continue its rapid growth and become an industry leader." 

With 100 local employees, BelFlex has tripled in size over the last four years and will produce revenues in excess of $115M in 2013. The company provides flexible staffing solutions to customers in the distribution, fulfillment and manufacturing areas through its Chattanooga office and 24 additional offices in the Midwest and Southeast.

As a part of the rollout, BelFlex has a new logo with the tagline “People Driven Success.”  

“We want our BelFlex offices to reflect our spirit, energy, and core commitment that no one will work harder or smarter to provide flexible staffing solutions that help our customers succeed,” said BelFlex President Todd Cross.

Although the name will be changing, the ownership and management team of BelFlex will remain the same. Candace McCaw, chairman, and Michael McCaw, CEO, of Belcan Corporation, will hold the same roles with BelFlex Staffing Network. Todd Cross will remain president and lead day-to-day operations. Bob Baer, vice president, and Richard Schneider, CFO, will continue to be key members of the BelFlex leadership team.

Roy Exum: Amputee Team Wins Relay

As a news junkie there isn’t a lot that gets past me in my morning reading, yet I had no idea there was a relay race in Chattanooga two weekends ago. Maybe that’s why 1,500 people ran away and never came back – the finish line was in Nashville. How the Ragnar Relays work is pretty simple. The organizers pick two cities that are about 200 miles apart and then 12-to-14 runners ... (click for more)
