From Shepley to Los Angeles – JCS HR Goes International!

Huddersfield-based human resources specialist JCS HR has been retained by Los Angeles based Kraco Enterprises to provide HR support as the company expands into Europe.

Kraco – which is based in Los Angeles – has recently purchased a subsidiary of a large multinational which has staff based in Wythenshawe, Manchester. Kraco approached JCS, on the recommendation of an existing client, to provide HR support for the transition and ongoing HR and payroll services. The new company – which will be known as KCCI – will be based in offices in Altrincham.

Director of JCS HR, Julie Sykes, said: “One of our existing clients kindly recommended us to Kraco, and we have enjoyed working with them to manage the transition of staff to the new company. The time differences and ‘language differences’ between ourselves and the US based staff have been quite challenging at times! We are looking forward to supporting KCCI going forward, and we are currently working to develop employment policies and procedures which reflect Kraco values and culture, but which also take into account the requirements of UK legislation.”

JCS will also supply payroll services through its partner company AK Payroll Services, which is also based in Huddersfield.

Kraco is one of the largest manufacturing operations in the automotive aftermarket. Its facility in Compton covers over 500,000 square feet, with over three million cubic feet of palletised top quality floormats ready to ship.
