Surestaff, LLC, based in Chicago, announced its acquisition of Cardinal Staffing. This strategic investment broadens Surestaff’s service reach while strengthening their position as one of the largest light-industrial staffing firms in the United States and Midwest region.

Joni and Tom Fought set out with a vision when establishing Cardinal Staffing in 1994: to serve the communities of northern Ohio and southern Michigan with integrity and dedication. Their diverse suite of services, which include light-industrial, office and clerical, professional talent, and direct hire, has made a meaningful impact. Cardinal COO Joe Young, VP of Sales Rhonda Clemons, and VP of Operations and Business Development Christina Ice will remain with the Company to further expand and drive growth at Cardinal.

"Today marks a significant milestone for both our teams,” Young says. “As we look to the future, our combined efforts with Surestaff promise even more opportunities for the people and businesses we serve."

"Joining hands with Surestaff and ORG isn't just a strategic move—it's about pooling our resources, expertise, and shared values,” Clemons says. “This partnership elevates our services through next-level marketing, technology, risk management, and workforce solutions programs.”

"The diligence and dedication of the Cardinal team, spearheaded by Joni and Tom, have crafted an impressive legacy in the staffing industry,” adds Tim Faber, Surestaff's CEO.  “It’s been genuinely inspiring to connect with the Cardinal team, and we're eager to collectively explore the road ahead."
