HomeServe expansion will benefit city, residents


HomeServe expansion will benefit city, residents
 

HomeServe's Chattanooga employees were disappointed to read your article about the company's expansion in our community, "Chattanooga panel gives HomeServe USA a tax break for expansion," June 7.
 
The article highlighted $175,000 in tax incentives HomeServe will receive over the next five years related to our expansion in the area, a common practice used by local leaders to attract or retain business. However, the reporter chose not to focus on the investment HomeServe is making in Chattanooga, including $5 million for a new building and the creation of 200 additional jobs. Further, the expansion will provide nearly $10 million in new direct salaries and benefits for Chattanoogans and an estimated additional $12 million in indirect salaries and benefits into the community. HomeServe will also pay about $250,000 in local taxes over the next five years.
 
We are proud of the contributions we make to the communities we serve and look forward to welcoming 200 more associates to our expanded Chattanooga facility when it's completed next year. We congratulate the city council, the county commission and the Industrial Development Board for their role in making this happen.
