Our Approach

By specializing only in the Food & Beverage Manufacturing arena, our team of recruiters has uniquely positioned themselves to succeed by developing an extensive nationwide network consisting only of established manufacturing professionals.

Realizing that a “one size fits all” method seldom works, our expert team of recruiters prides itself in listening to the unique situations of individual clients and candidates. We then tailor a recruitment process to meet each of the specific goals, challenges, and needs of the organization and candidate.


Our Philosophy

At MRC we follow 4 simple rules to assure that you will receive the respect you deserve while being recognized as the individual you are!

Say What We Do—Set up-front commitments so you are clear about what is going to happen.

Do What We Say—Follow-up is key to the communication cycle. You can count on us to stay connected and provide consistent updates.

Embrace the “Platinum Rule”—Treat others how they want to be treated. Put the needs and desires of those we work with ahead of our own.

Be Transparent—Freely and openly exchange information with those we work with in order to help arrive at the best decision.
