 CEDAR GROVE - The Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce welcomes York Companies as its newest member.

The Cedar grove branch is the third location for the Louisville-based staffing services company founded in 1979. President/CEO Tim Hester said a fourth is being planned in Nashville, Tenn.

Hester credited a strong client base in the Bullitt County area for the company’s newest location. He said York considered opening a local branch for three years.

“Our customers brought us here,” he added.

The Cedar Grove location featured a centralized county location for clients along with easy accessibility.

Hester mentioned four divisions of York services, including the new staffing branch, catering to temp-to-hire clients in job areas such as office professional and light industrial.

York supplies professional executive recruiting services for business managers. The company also features Business Management Solutions, a strategic consulting service that assists with resolving work issues “through the people process,” Hester said.

The company also features Worklife Solutions, a training to help companies advance workplace culture.

According to Hester, Worklife Solutions encourages companies to hire for positions based on positive character. York trains companies based on the Character First business program.

An open house and ribbon cutting took place at the new York branch located in the Cedar Grove Business Park. Grand opening gift certificates were supplied by Geek Squad City, Quiet Logistics and Best Buy.

York Companies is located at 1707 Cedar Grove Road, Suite 4. Office hours are weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information call 921-9110.
