Power Expands in Massachusetts
Pennsylvania-based Power Home Remodeling Group hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week for its newly-expanded operations in Marlborough, Mass. The company, which says it is the nation’s fourth largest home remodeling company, has already hired more than 50 employees in the Boston region and plans to create at least 100 jobs in 2011 and another 100 to 250 positions in 2012.
“This expansion will provide more opportunity–both for our current employees and for prospective employees looking for stability, growth and earning potential in the green jobs sector," says Jeff Kaliner, Power’s co-founder and CEO. "Our aggressive expansion approach continues to demonstrate our goal of being the leading home improvement company with a special focus on green products and energy efficient, environmentally-friendly solutions to help homeowners enhance their home and reduce their energy consumption.”
The company, which recently opened a facility in Long Island, N.Y., credits its recent success in part to the federal energy efficiency tax credit for homeowners. In 2010, Power installed energy efficient solutions in more than 14,000 homes and sites. In 2011, it plans to add another 400 jobs as it expands not only into the Boston and Long Island markets, but Atlanta as well.
When Power opens a new office location, the company is committed to ingraining itself into the local community and embarks on various community-related initiatives, officials note. With the opening of the Marlborough operation, Power is contributing $10,000 to the Massachusetts YouthBuild Coalition to help support resources and programs for the 10 YouthBuild chapters across the state.
The official ribbon cutting ceremony gathered several state and local elected officials to the new operation, including Lieutenant Governor Timothy P. Murray; Congressman James McGovern; State Senator Jamie Eldridge; State Representative Steven Levy; and Marlborough Mayor Nancy Stevens.
