Our History

Founded in Greenville, South Carolina in 1996 by Ray Lattimore, then a business analyst for Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, Marketplace Staffing was created to fill the staffing needs of local South Carolina businesses.

Successful from the outset, in 1999 Marketplace began a working relationship with Procter & Gamble's Greenville facility that catapulted the firm from small, local player to a regionally focused staffing specialist.  Today's Marketplace Staffing Services, Inc. is a regional provider of high quality, value-added staffing services and solutions to leading regional, national and international companies.

Headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina, Marketplace is a Certified Minority Business Enterprise, a member of the American Staffing Association, and of both the Carolinas-Virginia Minority Supplier Development Council (CVMSDC) and the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC).

In 2013, Marketplace founded a new division, Marketplace Professional, to specifically address our clients' needs for professional talent in a wide array of fields to include: Administrative, Accounting/Finance, Information Technology, and Executive Level Management. Its office is located in Greenville in close proximity to Marketplace Staffing's headquarters.

From a single employee placement in 1996 to nineteen years of positive growth and profitability, Marketplace is extremely well-capitalized and financially strong. We comply with all employment laws of the United States and proudly maintain non-discriminatory hiring policies and practices on behalf of our organization and our clients.
