Staffing Needs Across the Industries: Crane Industry Staffing and More!

The COVID-19 global pandemic has caused some areas of the economy, like hospitality and airline travel, to tank, but other areas are still going strong. In fact, some industries are looking to hire new employees. At Advastar, we are a staffing agency that helps your business find the perfect employees. We save you time and money by seeking out qualified employees and screening them before they even set foot inside your office for an interview. We do engineering, utilities, manufacturing, crane industry staffing, and more!

Our partnership begins with us offering a free consultation to learn about your business goals and staffing needs. This also helps us to gain an understanding of what type of employees you need and what experience and skillsets are preferred. Read on to learn more about how we provide staffing help throughout various industries.

Crane Industry Staffing

At Advastar, one of our specialties is providing crane recruiting and staffing solutions. This is a unique line of work, and it can take a lot of time and effort to find qualified candidates. Enter Advastar! We have the access and flexibility to help you hire some of the top crane industry talent throughout the country. Over the past 7+ years, we have built a network of certified crane operators. In addition, we have created a large candidate pool of experienced and trusted crane professionals. We are familiar with evaluating credentials, safety training, and hiring on crane operators as quickly as possible to get them to your site by the start of the project. Our candidate pool includes NCCCO Certified Crane Operators as well as NCCCO/NCCER Crane Riggers.

No staffing project is too big or too small for us. We have staffed some of the largest construction projects in the country, as well as smaller-scale projects that only need 1-2 crane operators. Also, when it comes to operating cranes for your project, we know how important things like safety and level of experience are. The candidates in our pool have great records of being safe, starting on time, and being focused on the job from start to finish.


Another industry where we specialize in staffing is for engineering firms. Whether you need a contracted employee or a direct placement hire, we can help you find the perfect person. We hire all different types of engineers, from those who work on railways to those who work in the oilfield. Engineering firms typically need a lot of different types of employees at all different levels. Here are some of the positions we can help hire for:

  • Drafter
  • Designer
  • Engineer
  • Project Manager
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Accounting & Finance
  • Administrative
  • Executive/Leadership Team
  • Field Personnel
  • Construction Management Team

Our many years of experience have allowed us to understand the skills needed for each type of position. As we review hundreds of resumes, we can easily pick out candidates that we know have the appropriate levels of experience and the skillsets necessary to get the job done. In addition, engineers always have a specialty. Examples include civil, electrical, mechanical, chemical, and industrial engineers. At Advastar, we understand the ins and outs of each type of engineer and the skillsets necessary.


The utilities industry is one that stays strong and steady despite a recession in other industries. Currently, the utilities industry is facing several challenges. First, the workforce is retiring faster than it is being replaced. This is where a staffing agency is helpful. We can quickly provide your utility company with a large pool of skilled hires to meet your staffing demands.

A second challenge is that utility companies are always trying to find new ways to increase revenues and decrease costs. At Advastar, we can provide your company with a top-notch management team to analyze costs and come up with solutions.

A third challenge in the utilities industry is replacing old infrastructure with newer technology and more innovative solutions. We focus on hiring quality engineering and design teams for your firm and can help address infrastructure issues.

Finally, utility companies face policy issues put forth by the state and federal governments. Lately, environmental policy has become very important, which has caused a shift in utility company practices. We can help hire experts who understand these polices and can help your company navigate them.


The manufacturing industry is another area where we can hire. We provide your company with access to a large manufacturing candidate pool. This process is much easier then simply trying to interview candidates based on who fills out an application on your website. Our candidate pool is well-qualified and experienced in the manufacturing industry. Here are some examples of manufacturing skillsets we look for:

  • Plant Managers
  • Maintenance
  • Supervision
  • Estimators
  • QA/QC
  • IT
  • Inspectors
  • Accounting & Finance
  • I&C Engineers
  • Business Development
  • Administrative
  • Leadership/Executive

In the end, our goal is to find the perfect match for your manufacturing company. We will supply you with candidate choices who can have specialized expertise, can meet deadlines, and will share your desire to meet strategic initiatives and long-term goals. At Advastar, we have years of experience helping manufacturing, plant facility, and design/fabrication firms hire the best staff possible.
