Concept has come a long way!

We’d love to tell you about our history.

Concept’s Story

Concept Technical Group, originally founded as Concept Engineering & Mfg., Inc., was established in 1984 to supply quality engineering, design, and drafting services to companies in the Milwaukee area. Understanding that the business was highly competitive and service oriented, the long-term goal was to gain a reputation throughout the industry for supplying reliable, quality personnel at competitive rates.  After 30 plus years enduring the many ups and downs in the economy we feel that we are well on our way to achieving that “long term” goal!

The business of staffing has changed significantly over those 30 years too!!  In “the old days” a chief engineer would call with a need for a designer on Monday at 8:00 a.m.  No resumes, no background checks.  We would “deliver” a candidate on Monday as requested (sometimes including a drafting board!) and they would work till projects end.  If business and the economy continued to be good, the client may eventually bring that candidate on permanent.

While we may still “deliver” a candidate on a Monday morning, it is rare that we wouldn’t have first submitted a resume to the Human Resources department after an in person interview as well as full background and reference checks!!

With the current shortage of talent due to the retiring of the baby boomers and a reasonable economy, most of the requests we field these days are for help in recruiting permanent talent.  Thankfully with the reputation and network that we have built over the years we have some great resources to go to when looking for help.

So today, whether looking for that person on Monday morning at 8:00 for a temporary assignment or for that last permanent piece of the puzzle to complete your team, Concept Technical Group is here to help!!

Thank you to all of the people who have helped us these past 30 plus years and we will strive to continue towards our original long term goals!!!
