“We attribute the excellent progress seen in 2012 to our over-arching strategy that included pursing strong domestic growth within new and core client accounts, deepening our channel partnerships, and exciting investment in our international expansion,” CEO David Barfield said.

Bartech expanded its domestic delivery including significant wins to deliver MSP and staffing services:
• Bartech unveiled its new Recruiting VMS Fulfillment Center, Recruitment Development Center, and MSP Centers of Excellence, recommitting its future to Michigan, and investing in long-term growth. Bartech now uses 70,000 workers through its Managed Solutions offering and more than 4,000 workers deployed through Bartech Staffing Solutions.
• Bartech saw its overall client base expand MSP programs dramatically. In particular, customers including Owens Corning demonstrated growth in their sophistication of MSP utilization by implementing Bartech’s advanced strategies for Statement of Work (SOW) and Services Procurement, Independent Contractor Compliance, Payroll and Direct Hire.
• Bartech made significant gains in channel partner strategies and continues to be committed to diversifying and deepening channel relationships with leading Vendor Management Systems (VMS), recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) and strategic staffing partners.

2012 saw additional international expansion into the United Kingdom, India, Canada, Mexico, Philippines and Argentina. 

Looking ahead to 2013 and beyond, Bertech says it will launch the Diversity Delivers supplier development initiative in 2013 to grow and expand on current delivery of more than 40 percent Tier II Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) spend into MSP programs. It also plans to expand its overseas countries served from seven to 26 countries in the coming 24 months.

Barfield concluded, “2012 was an excellent year for Bartech and I’m very proud of everyone associated with the organization for delivering such fantastic performance. We recognize that times remain tough throughout the U.S. and in the global economy, but as a result of Bartech’s highly skilled and motivated people, dedicated client relationships and strong channel partnerships, we look forward with anticipation to further successes and a strong 2013.”
