Hastings Equity Partners, a capital partner to founders of lower middle-market businesses, has made a platform investment in Terra Staffing Group, a west coast-based staffing firm.

Headquartered in Everett, Wash., Terra offers staffing services for industrial, administrative and technical staffing across a range of industries including industrial, consumer products, food and beverage and logistics. Terra is currently managed by CEO Greg Lambert and CSO Jenifer Lambert and was founded over 40 years ago. The company operates out of 18 offices across five states and provides its customers with a suite of outsourced human resource services.

“Terra is uniquely positioned to capitalize on global trends in temporary labor market growth by providing unique, technology-driven solutions to companies with difficult-to-fill jobs that often strain human resource departments,” states Grant Reckhow, principal at Hastings.
