The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce ambassadors joined Palmetto Staffing Agency, LLC on Tuesday afternoon to celebrate its new chamber membership with a ribbon cutting.
Palmetto Staffing is located at 420 W. Cheves St. in Florence. Ronnie Shirlaw is president.
The business was started about four years ago and has two locations, one in Florence and one in Hartsville at 853 W. Carolina Ave.
There are six employees at the Florence location and two in the Hartsville office.
They help businesses with temporary hiring needs while helping people find temporary employment. Most are temporary assignments lasting about three or four months.
Palmetto Staffing is a temporary staffing agency that in some instances results in full time employment, he said.
Shirlaw said people can come to the office and fill out applications or leave their resumes.
In the next three or four months, Shirlaw said Palmetto Staffing will be moving to a new location on West Evans Street.
“We are in the process of moving,” he said.
Shirlaw and his wife, Angel, have two children and four grandchildren. They live in Florence.
He said he is looking forward to getting involved with the chamber.
