History and Culture

TEKsystems History

In 1983, two entrepreneurs created Aerotek, a company that offered consulting services and an incredible dedication to meeting client needs—no matter how challenging or complex. Clients appreciated Aerotek’s unrelenting commitment to client satisfaction and within the first year of operations, Aerotek earned over $1 million in revenue.

Through the remainder of the 1980s, Aerotek developed several subsidiaries (Data Temps, Aerotek Data Services Group, Maxim Group) that expanded beyond aeronautics, engineering and light industrial markets to meet IT applications, infrastructure and communications needs. TEKsystems split from Aerotek in the 1990s to focus on and specialise in IT.

Today, TEKsystems is a flagship company of Allegis Group, the world’s largest talent management company with annual revenues of £7.63 billion (€10.50 billion) in 2015.* TEKsystems provides a range of IT services, IT staffing and recruiting solutions and IT talent management expertise. Our value proposition is cemented in our real-world insight into what works in IT and our unmatched network of the highest-calibre IT experts.

In a single year, we place over 80,000 IT contractors across the globe to support critical IT engagements at 6,000 client sites worldwide. With more than 100 offices and 5,000 employees throughout North America, the U.K., Europe and Asia, we have advanced insight into the IT labour market, and superior speed and selectivity when recruiting IT professionals to manage and support IT initiatives.
