Sustained Quality was formed by a team of quality professionals with deep experience in the quality sort and containment field. The SQ brand originated in South Carolina through an organization named Palmetto Staffing. Through acquisition by Peoplelink, the SQ brand became an active player in the quality services arena. Shortly thereafter, Peoplelink acquired the 2AM brand with 2AM and 2AM Ontario (California) business units. Peoplelink then established a joint venture with ARD Logistics to provide a minority provider Global SQ to support a specific OEM’s needs. The final piece of the puzzle was the acquisition of EHD Technologies. The unified brands are known as the SQ.
