CHESTER, Pa. — March 26, 2012 — Power Home Remodeling Group has expanded its operations to Rosemont, Ill. Power has hired more than 75 employees in the Chicago region with plans to create at least 150 additional jobs in 2013. The company will hosted an official ribbon cutting today at its Rosemont offices with the support of state and local elected officials, including Senator Dick Durbin and Congressman Mike Quigley, as well as Rosemont Mayor Bradley Stephens.
Power's success in a rebounding economy is due in large part to the administration's energy efficiency tax credits for homeowners, state and federal support for green-collar job growth and the company's commitment to investing in a green workforce and renewable energy solutions, the company states. In 2011, Power expanded into three additional markets including Boston, Long Island and Atlanta — accompanying its existing Pa., N.J., Md. and Conn. territories. As a result of this aggressive expansion, Power has added more than 600 jobs to the economy. Power's portfolio of energy-efficient exterior remodeling solutions includes replacement windows, siding, roofing, entry and garage doors, home insulation, and more.
Additionally, Power will continue its support of Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) in celebration of its expansion to the Chicago region by donating $10,000 to help fight pediatric cancer and support ALSF's efforts in the region, including a previous childhood cancer research grant totaling $200,000 awarded to the University of Chicago. Recognizing the financial burden that families often encounter who face the need to travel for childhood cancer treatment, ALSF has also provided more than $11,000 to families traveling to Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago through its Travel Fund program.
Power announced its initial national sponsorship of ALSF in April 2011 and has committed to donate portions of its sales in an effort to raise awareness of pediatric cancer within each of the markets it offers home improvement services. To date, Power has donated more than $300,000 to ALSF. Power also extends a 25 percent discount, in addition to any current promotions, to members of the local police and fire departments.
