R3bi's latest business bringing jobs to Paris
Red River Region Business Incubator’s latest client is bringing jobs to Paris.
Eclipse Professional Services is a staffing agency that specializes in finding workers temporary to permanent assignments in industrial, logistic and manufacturing settings, as well as certification training for skills such as forklift driving and computer software. Office hours are Monday through Friday at the incubator, 1445 Clarksville.
“The real value to them is the contacts, as well as the management and oversight, the incubator provides,” R3bi Director Hank Betke said. “What works for the incubator is they’re bringing jobs. We’ll all about jobs. They’re bringing jobs to Paris that might have otherwise gone to Dallas.”
Dallas-based Eclipse Professional Services is run by President Diana Rose and her son, General Manager William Rose. The two have combined experience of nearly 50 years.
Opportunity brought them east to open a new office in Paris after a client suggested they take a look here.
“We want to branch out,” Diana said. “Everybody’s going to the big cities, but we’re looking to serve some of the smaller communities.”
The Roses are no strangers to business incubators. Eclipse got its start in May 2010 in the Business Incubator Center at Mountain View College as the center’s first client and first graduate business.
“We found the resources they provided were excellent for the start of our company,” William said. “We felt coming to the incubator here would offer the same opportunity.”
They felt fortunate R3bi had office space available. Where Mountain View taught the Roses business basics, the role for Red River Region Business Incubator has been to help them apply that knowledge.
“Hank has been very informative and helpful for us. Jane Adams, the administrative assistant, is totally awesome. She’s great and always on top of everything,” Diana said. “That’s important for the growth of the incubator, as well as having people who are knowledgeable of the community.”
And Eclipse is a very community-oriented company.
“We don’t want to be just another staffing company here in Paris,” William said. “We want to become a valued partner in the community.”
