Keeping Business in Business™
More than a tagline, Keeping Business in Business™ is our promise. From our founding in 1963 as a private detective agency in Dearborn, Michigan, three generations of the Huffmaster family have built the company into the leading provider of strike management and security services.
As the needs of our clients have expanded over the years, we have developed solutions that leverage the latest technology and our skilled employees to keep those customers operational during any crisis. Huffmaster assists with all aspects of workforce management, including contingency planning, replacement personnel and security.
As the nation’s first single-source strike services agency, Huffmaster has earned its reputation on the front lines of some of the nation’s most difficult and high-profile labor disputes. The provider of choice for Fortune 500 companies and large healthcare organizations alike, Huffmaster provides a full range of solutions, including strike services, industrial staffing, travel healthcare staffing and security services.
