Our Story

Two entrepreneurs founded Aerotek in 1983 to support the growing talent needs in the aerospace and defense industry, with a focus on contract engineering . Through strategic investments, the business quickly expanded into other industries and specializations, including lab and clinical. Specialized solutions were added with the integration of EASi engineering services, bringing with it decades of award-winning expertise.

But we weren’t going to let past success dictate our future. As science and engineering create change and innovation, we too must evolve.

So, we are refocusing on our engineering and sciences core, forming a new company as Actalent (pronounced ACT-uh-lent) to cultivate and support the people who make progress possible. Together, through a better understanding of your needs and collaboratively tailored services, we can create future success.
