Tradesmen International, a Nationally Recognized Source for Skilled Craftsmen and Labor Productivity Consultation, a Feature of "Industry Today" on

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - February 12, 2009) - Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) will host special guest Tradesmen International (Cleveland, Ohio) as part of this week's "Industry Today" webcast. As a construction labor support company, Tradesmen International has a focus on the recruitment and staffing of skilled craftsmen within the commercial and industrial construction sectors. However, the company's growth and client loyalty is largely attributed to its ability to assist contractors and industrial companies in optimizing productivity.

Tradesmen's Labor Management Consultants work with construction owners and management, helping them to analyze their employment records and historical workload trends. By doing so, this helps construction businesses properly define their optimal core or permanent work force level. Once defined, Tradesmen consultants work closely with project management to help forecast their short- and long-term skilled labor needs. As workload expands beyond what the core work force can handle, Tradesmen efficiently supplements the core work force with its variable skilled craftsmen only for as long as the workload keeps them productive. The consistent result is substantially reduced labor costs and increased productivity.

Tradesmen employs thousands of skilled craftsmen at all skill levels in all trades who operate out of more than 100 locations nationally. In addition, the company maintains a large traveling work force with expertise in industry sectors ranging from petrochemicals and power generation to pulp & paper and automotive. This enables the company to serve its clients in all markets in all 50 states. Finally, Tradesmen has a marine-dedicated work force, serving the needs of shipbuilding, repair and retrofit companies. All Tradesmen employees are hired full time upon completing a stringent hiring process and are required to complete OSHA safety training as a condition of hire.

The company serves its clientele with Total Labor Support® services, inclusive of Labor Productivity Consulting, OSHA Compliant Safety Training, NCCER Skill Assessments, Journeyman Certification Training via Construction Craft Academy, and, of course, its Construction Staffing Services that have enabled it to maintain bona fide partnerships with clients of all sizes in all construction sectors.
