At AP Professionals of WNY, we are committed to providing excellent service through building a team of highly engaged employees that believe strongly in a set of shared core values and working with integrity. Founded in 1993 by Joseph Kreuz, AP Professionals has become the premier staffing agency in WNY that prides itself on customer service. We have a distinct reputation in the marketplace for positively impacting businesses and individuals because we treat everyone we encounter with the most genuine of care and concern. Our services are tailored to each of our client’s specific needs and our ability to source both permanent and temporary staff through our extensive network of companies.
Although AP Professionals has purposely worked hard to remain boutique in nature, providing very personalized service to our customers and candidates, our customers are surprised by how many companies and resources we are tied to through our partnership in the Advantage Company. In addition to providing best in class staffing solutions, we can connect our clients to a remarkable list of readily available resources ranging from technical and data management tools to enterprise archive solutions to corporate catering and custom designed corporate gifts! The list is endless and spans technology, consultative business services, fashion and food.
