DALLAS – Private-equity backed, temporary staffing firm BG Staffing has acquired Pawtucket-based American Partners Inc., BG announced Tuesday.

The deal with American Partners, a national niche staffing firm specializing in providing experienced information technology professionals, closed on Dec. 3.

According to Ron Wnek, Director at American Partners, the firm is operating as it did on Dec. 2 before the deal closed. “Nothing has changed, everyone is still staying,” Wnek told Providence Business News.

“We hope this is going to lead to bigger and greater things,” said Wnek, adding that the firm still has plans to expand its presence within the Ocean State. “We hope that we’ll continue on with the success we’ve had in the last five years,” he said.

American Partners was listed on PBN’s 2012 list of the Fastest-Growing Companies in the $25 million and above bracket with reported revenue of $25.6 million for 2011, which represented growth of 326 percent over its 2009 revenue of $6 million.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
