About Tradesmen International

Tradesmen International, an Ohio-based company, has provided contract skilled labor to construction and industrial partners since 1992. The company has since expanded its service focus to include Construction, Energy, Residential, Marine, Industrial, and Institutional businesses. Clients leverage the Company’s market-focused recruiting expertise and scale, accessing craft professionals across trades and skill levels. The ongoing shortage of skilled craftworkers in North America has made this task challenging for skilled-trade business management. In addition, Tradesmen’s business model focuses on helping clients maintain a balance between workload and workforce to optimize workforce productivity. From a skilled craft person’s perspective, the company’s relationships and recruiting engine have led to improved job stability for craftworkers. This is achievable as, a craftworker’s current project concludes, the employee is usually being marketed for their next assignment by a project team of project coordinators and sales professionals.
