With two plant consolidations and a leveraged buyout, Kendall was under great stress to produce not only a profit, but to change the way they were doing business. MAU developed a Just-In-Time applicant flow based system, which created a tighter profile for quality and allowed MAU to become an integral player in the success of the process. MAU has been providing staffing and recruiting services to Kendall for over a decade. When Kendall Augusta needed to find another staffing service, MAU was selected to fill their temporary employee needs; and when Kendall's new Atlanta distribution center opened, MAU recruited and filled all open full-time staff positions. Today, MAU employees fill production positions in 2nd and 3rd shifts and are trained to work in a wide variety of production positions in the Augusta facility. The utilization of these multifunctional employees has helped Kendall realize a significant cost savings over the past 10 years.
