Our History

Ken Poirier, founder of Abbey Placements, began working in the staffing industry in 1978. He opened Abbey Placements in 1982 in the old Unity Building in downtown Bloomington. Some of his areas of expertise included sales, manufacturing, retail, food service, finance, accounting, and programmer analysts, as well as many office level positions.

In 1994, Abbey Placements began placing workers in temporary assignments in addition to direct hire/permanent placements. Today, we place people in temporary, temp-to-perm, contract, and direct hire/permanent positions. We specialize in the areas of manufacturing and customer service.

Our staff strives to develop and maintain long-standing relationships with our client companies. We have many long-standing accounts with as few as one or two workers, or up to fifty or more workers at a time.

Whatever your need, we want to connect you with the right people, for the right job, for the right amount of time!
