ALTRES Staffing celebrated the grand opening of its newest location in Aiea at 98-1277 Kaahumanu St., Ste. 110.

The Waimalu Plaza Shopping Center location will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Fridays. 

The 1,100 square foot office is considerably larger and expects to serve 25-percent more job seekers than the former office.

"We want to ensure job seekers have the best resources available when looking for a new job in 2019," Industrial Division Manager Shani Silva said. "The new, larger space is an investment in job seekers. It's very central with ample parking and steps away from a bus stop so anyone can stop in to learn about their options for industrial jobs."

A traditional Hawaiian blessing was held February 10th, led by Kahu Kordell Kekoa. The grand opening and employee appreciation event on February 15th provided breakfast, lunch and prizes for employees.
