Jane Yu Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Irvine-based staffing firm Decton Inc. acquired Cal-West Personnel Inc. in Fullerton on undisclosed terms.

Decton provides job placements for various sectors, including healthcare, hospitality and construction. It makes about 500 placements a month and recently notched $60 million in annual revenue. Its employee total, while changing often, typically comes to between 60 and 70, according to company spokesperson William Sanford.

Cal-West specializes in technical and light-industrial job placements.

Financial information wasn’t available for Cal-West, which is expected to continue operations with about 10 employees headed by current chief executive, Marilyn Richards.

Decton has a number of offices throughout California, including in Corona, Los Angeles and San Jose, and one each in Arizona and Nevada.

The firm has had a streak of acquisitions in recent months, including a buy in Santa Ana last month that brought Clinical Staffing Services into the Decton fold.
