BDI Staffing Celebrates 25 years in the Staffing Industry
June 14, 2012 – Salem, OR – BDI Staffing has been serving the staffing needs of businesses in and around Salem since 1987. BDI Staffing offers a full range of personnel services, temp, temp to hire, farm labor, employee leasing and professional placement in all industries.
Jim and Marvell Brown, owners of BDI Staffing, started the business (Brown & Dunton Inc) in collaboration with Ford Dunton of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. At that time Dunton was operating a staffing service in Idaho. When the lumber mill, where Jim was the Plant Manager, closed Dunton approached him with the idea of expanding the staffing service into another state. Research showed promise in the Salem area. In the mid 90’s the Browns purchased Dunton’s stock and became sole owners. The name was changed from Brown & Dunton Inc to BDI Staffing in 2007.
In 1987, Brown & Dunton Inc., was one of a small number of services in the Salem area and the only one that specialized in staffing for lumber and plywood mills, construction and manufacturing. As more and more lumber mills closed in the Santiam Canyon BDI Staffing saw the need to diversify. Today they serve all industries at any level from clerical to plant floor workers to CEO’s. The advantage BDI Staffing has always promoted has been the ability to make a corporate decision on a moments notice because we are the corporate office.
BDI Staffing remains locally owned and ownership remains in the family. Jim remains in the president position, Marvell is the Corp. Sec/Tres, and son Jasun serves as VP of operations.
BDI Staffing can be reached at 503-364-5189 and its office is located at 3400 State street suite G-720 in the Park Five Business Plaza.
