ALBION – A staffing agency that worked with CRFS the past 18 months to meet the company’s exponential growth on Saturday told 50 to 60 workers in Albion their services were no longer needed.

Areotek was called “an important partner” for CRFS by Cecelia Raine, CRFS president and chief strategist.

She said CRFS and Aerotek expect to keep working together in the future.

A few of the workers let go sent messages to Orleans Hub saying that 50 to 60 people were let go on Saturday. They were told the reasons were “low sales volume.”

CRFS and Aerotek issued this joint statement today:

“Last week, Claims Recovery Financial Services, LLC and Aerotek came to a private agreement regarding staffing requirements that Aerotek was assisting with for the past 18 months. CRFS remains a growing and vital organization, and is committed to the Orleans county and San Antonio communities. CRFS appreciates Aerotek fulfilling their contract and we look forward to our continued partnership.”

CRFS has about 600 workers in Orleans County, with most of them at the former JP Morgan Chase site on Route 31 in Albion. The company also has about 80 workers in San Antonio.

The workers let go on Saturday are employed by Aerotek. CRFS officials declined to comment beyond the statement.
