Our Story

Purchasing Professionals, Inc. was established in 1994, specializing in providing staffing solutions for purchasing, materials and supply chain departments.

Purchasing Professionals, Inc. is owned by Rita Abrahamson, a former Purchasing Manager who experienced first-hand the lack of access to experienced temporary professionals for the purchasing field. Today with the global supply chain, we look to service the realm of positions within that department. We focus on staffing this niche in the marketplace and are committed to exceeding the expectations of our clients and employees.

What sets us apart? We know purchasing and supply chain!! We not only have the staffing expertise, but we bring that special understanding of what it takes to be a purchasing professional. We understand how critical this role is in an organization. We go beyond the resume in matching skills and experience to find the best talent for you.

Our clientele consists of companies of all sizes in many different industries to include manufacturing, services, retail, food, construction, printing, packaging, transportation, distribution and many more…

Our experiences and background are strengthened by our memberships in NAPM-Twin Cities, ISM (Institute of Supply Management), MNRSA (Minnesota Recruiting and Staffing Association) and APICS.
