Power Home Remodeling Group™ Expands Into Illinois, Creating Hundreds Of New Green Jobs

CHESTER, Pa., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Power Home Remodeling Group, one of the nation's largest home remodeling companies, has expanded its operations in Rosemont, Illinois — ushering in hundreds of new, green jobs in the greater Chicago metropolitan area. Power has already hired more than 75 employees in the Chicago region with plans to create at least 150 additional jobs in 2013. The company will host 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.

"We are thrilled to expand into the Chicagoland area and to introduce Power to the Midwest," said Corey Schiller, Power's chief executive officer and partner. "This expansion will increase our footprint beyond the east coast to provide more opportunity to both current and prospective employees looking for employment in the green jobs sector. We're committed to working toward our goal of being the leading home remodeler with a focus on green products and energy efficient, environmentally friendly solutions to help homeowners enhance their home and reduce their energy consumption."

Power's burgeoning 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. In 2011, Power expanded into three additional markets including Boston, Long Island and Atlanta — accompanying its existing PA, NJ, MD and CT territories. As a result of this aggressive expansion, Power has added more than 600 jobs to the economy. Power's portfolio of innovative, energy efficient exterior remodeling solutions includes replacement windows, siding, roofing, entry and garage doors, home insulation, and more.

"Green jobs are the jobs of the future, as Power Home Remodeling Group's success shows," said Senator Dick Durbin.  "Power has built on the momentum generated by federal energy efficiency programs to boost employment across the country while helping homeowners cut costs. With the company's expansion to Rosemont, we can now expect more of those next-generation jobs right here in Illinois. I congratulate Power on its growth in the Midwest and look forward to the economic growth it will bring to our state."

"I'm proud to have such an environmentally conscious business like Power Home Remodeling Group in our district and appreciate their commitment to long-term sustainability. The new green jobs created by Power are exactly the type of innovative opportunities our community needs to move the economy forward," said Congressman Mike Quigley.

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.
