What our partners say:

EnerVenue, a start-up in energy storage technology, discovered a breakthrough in nickel-hydrogen batteries. Kelly Engineering found the critical talent they’d need to grow from the R&D stage, through proof of concept and funding, into early production. In just 10 months, Kelly placed 35+ experts as the firm expanded on a tight schedule from a staff of 15 people to 97 employees.

Working with Kelly Engineering has offered value very similar to that we ascribe to our batteries: flexible, proven, long-lasting, and maintenance-free. We couldn’t ask more from a talent partner in renewable energy—but when we inevitably do, I’m confident they’ll deliver the people we need.” - Frank Blohm, Chief Operating Officer, EnerVenue
