Staffing company celebrates move to Perth Amboy with city officials

TeamOne Staffing Solution, which places workers in temporary positions at warehouses and other logistics centers, has moved its headquarters from Rahway to Perth Amboy, Perth Amboy Mayor Wilda Diaz announced Friday.

The business, which said it has at least 50 open positions to fill, from forklift drivers to clerks and more, will be open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday at 333 State St., the mayor and city’s Business Improvement District said in a news release.

“Our city is eager to welcome small businesses because these companies are the backbone of the community’s economy,” Diaz said in a prepared statement. “We have an excellent labor force in Perth Amboy, and our people need good-paying jobs. TeamOne is connecting our residents with positions in the city’s growing number of modern distribution centers.”

Brenda Romero is the manager of the new office, which is in the midst of focusing on the peak holiday season.

“Mayor Diaz, we’re here to stay,” founder and owner Christian Valdez said at the grand opening ceremony. “Our doors are wide open for people who want to start working tomorrow. Our clients are seeking dependable workers for warehouses that need people to fulfill all of the new orders that are coming in each day.”

The 2-year-old business currently has more than 130 workers filling positions at local warehouses, plus a staff of eight recruiters.

“We’re focused on nurturing the growth of local companies in our downtown business district,” BID Chairman Barry Rosengarten said in a statement. “The grand opening of TeamOne reaffirms our city’s resilience as we recover from the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on local businesses.”
