About PTS Advance

With over 65 years of combined experience in the human capital space, PTS Advance is proud to be the largest specialist provider of technical talent to the United States’ Oil, Gas & Chemicals, Power & Renewables, Life Sciences, Construction & Infrastructure and Manufacturing industries.

Offering a full range of staffing solutions, including Contract Hire, Direct Hire, Project Hire, Payroll & Transition Services, and Hiring Manager Portal/Private Talent Pool Technology, we align ourselves with our clients to understand their evolving needs and utilize our depth of talent and experience to provide qualified candidates – ensuring the project’s success and the safety of those supporting it.

Our History

Established by Ronald & June Stein in 1995, PTS Advance was built on a foundation of safety, experience, and the highest integrity, allowing us to understand the needs and desires of both clients and candidates. This knowledge enabled PTS Advance to create a successful niche in recruiting, employing, and retaining engineering and technical professionals while delivering best-in-class service as the premier contingent workforce management partner for the California Energy & Infrastructure market.

In September 2020, PTS Advance became one of HUDDL3 Group’s professional service brands. In collaboration with Range Search Partners and Roberts Engineers, these brands provide clients access to a broader suite of services offered across the entire talent ecosystem.

In February 2021, PTS Advance merged with UP Professional Solutions, expanding the company’s national reach and bringing together two powerhouses, which started as family businesses, to offer the best of the two companies to benefit all combined clients.

Today with over 65 years of combined experience, PTS Advance builds on past successes to nurture decades-long relationships with career seekers, employees, and industry leaders, focusing on expanding the quality of service offered to clients and candidates across new geographies and emerging industries.
