Formerly known as Elite Craft Support, Core Crew was founded by United Group Services in 2008. United Group Services (UGS), being a leading edge industrial contractor, established Core Crew as a way to supply quality skilled craft workers for their project needs and outages. Core Crew then started supplying other companies that were having similar issues recruiting, training and maintaining quality workers. Core Crew has now become a full service recruitment agency to connect the right workers to the right jobs at the right time.

Today Core Crew recruits and supplies a variety of skilled craft workers in a variety of different industries. Our skilled craft workers include but are not limited to welders, pipefitters, millwrights, ironworkers, carpenters, machinists, electricians, heavy machine operators, riggers and much more. Core Crew has grown because we excel at what we do. Core Crew works with each individual applicant to make sure they meet and exceed the need of every job site they are placed on. In all cases, applicants go through Core Crew’s own pre-qualification process.
