FAIRFIELD -- Star Staffing opened a new office in Fairfield, the company's fifth in the North Bay. 

The new branch offers a full range of staffing and employment services in a variety of professional and light industrial disciplines, the Petuluma-based company said.

The company has long had a presence in Solano County, but recently, continued growth in the region warranted a four-person permanent office there, according to Nicole Smartt, vice president of Star Staffing.

“We’re excited to help save more companies money by providing top notch employees, unparalleled service, cost savings solutions and risk-management support," she said in a statement. "Although we have been servicing this area with a solid client and candidate pool, we seek to strengthen our presence in Fairfield. Our goal is to make staffing effortlessly swift for employees and clients. A physical branch nearby will greatly support this effort. We feel this expansion will result in distinct advantages to our clients, employees and future candidates.”

The Fairfield office, at 2560 N. Texas St., opened Tuesday, Jan. 4, to job seekers, local employees, and clients.

Star Staffing (707-429-0200, www.starhr.com) has additional offices in Petaluma, Healdsburg, Santa Rosa and Napa, with satellite offices in Sonoma and Ukiah.
