According to Hudson, “The sale is consistent with Hudson’s strategy to focus on its core businesses to accelerate growth, drive towards sustained profitability and increase the value of the company for its stockholders.”

Both Hudson and Mastech rank on Staffing Industry Analysts’ list of largest US staffing firms.
