MásLabor, a provider of comprehensive services for employers participating in the H-2A and H-2B nonimmigrant visa programs, has announced a merger with AgWorks H2, LLC, a Georgia-based H-2A and H-2B consulting firm.
“AgWorks has a proven success model, with a deep compliance focus and highly knowledgeable leadership,” said Edward Silva, CEO of másLabor, who recently purchased másLabor in July 2021. “But as we and the market continue to evolve and grow, there are clear benefits to integration, shared systems and knowledge, and more active collaboration.”
One such benefit is the economy of scale. Together, the two companies obtain approvals for their clients to employ over 60,000 foreign workers per year. This gives the companies unique insight into issues faced by clients in every geography and industry.
“Together, we have a detailed view of the labor market for the entire country as it relates to H-2 workers, across nearly every industry,” said Dan Bremer, current President of AgWorks who will remain in a key leadership role to both másLabor and AgWorks. “We know the challenges, the opportunities, and we have best-in-class solutions.”
Under the new structure, AgWorks will expand its service offerings to align with those offered by másLabor, including assistance with domestic job applicants, comprehensive audit services and other visa categories. The companies will also consolidate their compliance teams to provide clients with expertise and best practices. Finally, integration also comes with a significant investment in technology to provide clients with a more efficient and effective process throughout.
“Our core mission is saving American businesses, full stop,” said Silva. “We are thrilled to join with the AgWorks team in this mission and their decades of experience.”
