ATLANTA, GA (July 20, 2018) – Two of Georgia’s most established independently owned workforce solutions companies are coming together, which means increased opportunity for the world’s best employers and top workforce talent to gain access to one another.

MAU Workforce Solutions has acquired with 3Ci — extending its global reach by adding the Atlanta-based company’s expertise in the fast-growing technology sector.

Rob MacLane, President of 3Ci, said his team is excited about the possibilities this partnership presents as it opens up new geographic markets in the tech sector. MacLane will be remaining with 3Ci, which will be keeping its name and operating as a new division of MAU. The deal gives MAU 10 company-owned offices in three states from the east coast to Utah with employees and consultants working across the world.

“We have focused heavily on tech in the Atlanta area, and this change allows 3Ci to grow quickly into booming tech markets where MAU is currently located and in targeted IT markets across the world,” he said. “In addition, MAU is a certified Native American-owned business, which will help us create new opportunities.”

Randall W. Hatcher, President of MAU Workforce Solutions, said, “The acquisition of 3Ci opens up new avenues of growth for both companies to leverage our combined 85 years in business. MAU broadens its current service offering to include expertise in technology staffing and consulting at a time when Georgia has staked its claim as the technology hub of the Southeast. 3Ci expands its base of services to include MAU’s suite of staffing and outsourcing solutions in manufacturing, finance, accounting, administrative, engineering and supply chain segments.”

Leaders at MAU and 3Ci see numerous alignment opportunities because both companies have similar cultures of faith, volunteerism, community, innovation and making the lives better of everyone they serve. The uniting of the companies affirms MAU as a premier workforce supplier in the Southeast, and strengthens the strategic foundation for MAU’s continued expansion across the U.S. and in markets worldwide.

“The vision of MAU Workforce Solutions is to make lives better by delivering workforce solutions globally. Today, we continue to deliver on this vision by expanding our expertise in the technology services sector working with a group of amazing clients, employees and consultants at 3Ci,”Hatcher said.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, IT employment is projected to increase by a staggering 13 percent between 2016 and 2026. It is one of the two fastest growing industries in the staffing world. As the fifth largest IT employment cluster in the country, Georgia is a leader in high-tech talent and competition amongst potential employers is high.
