Our Story

More about the history of our company – and where we’re going next.

Decades of Experience. Innovation for the Future.

Excel Temporary Service was founded in 1996 to provide flexible and comprehensive staffing solutions to our focus areas across Missouri, Georgia, and Tennessee. ETS has always remained laser-focused on superior customer service and top-tier talent, and we’ve continued to expand over the course of our 25-year history. As our company continues to evolve and refine our processes and services to best serve our client and candidate partners, we continue to focus on the ideals that brought us here: service and talent.

ETS is much more than a temporary staffing company. In addition to temporary and temp-to-hire staffing and recruiting, we offer direct hire staffing and recruiting solutions, executive search and recruitment, and comprehensive payrolling services for staffing as well. Across our target industries – accounting, clerical, industrial, IT, legal, and many more – we aim to match quality talent with the leading businesses that need it most, and we aim to do it with the best customer service in the business. Our team of staffing industry experts, recruiters, seasoned leadership, and dedicated support staff are here to help you find success, whether you’re looking for a new job opportunity or you need to hire game-changing talent for your organization.
