About Us

Our History

Founded in 1969 by Eugene G. Wach, EGW started as a technical temporary employment agency providing engineers, designers, and draftsmen to WNY manufacturing and engineering firms. Shortly thereafter his wife Nancy joined the company as his first employee and EGW officially became a family business. Gene built EGW on a solid foundation of Honesty, Integrity, and Knowledge.

Joined in later years first by his son Tom and later by his other three sons, the Wach family developed their recruiting and staffing firm through dedication to Gene’s original values.

Today EGW is managed by Jeff Wach, President, and joined by a strong team of recruiting professionals. EGW continues to provide high quality technical, professional, and manufacturing recruiting and HR support to companies in WNY, NE Ohio, and beyond. With two divisions to focus on the unique needs of clients and candidates, EGW provides the flexibility companies have come to expect and appreciate from one of Buffalo’s oldest recruiting firms.
