"As a veteran of the United States Navy and a native of Levittown, I knew we had to do whatever we could to support these localveterans who have served our country as they resume their lives at home," said Ray Sizer, Managing Partner, National Accounts. "We will be making a conscious effort to hire as many vets as possible for upcoming projects."
The company has already begun their efforts to target recently released vets through outreach and involvement with organizations such as the Navy's "Transitioning Active Personnel" program and PA Career Links, along with word of mouth through the veteran and military communities. The company hopes that as the business grows, so will their capacity to provide more and more veterans with secure, fulfilling and environmentally friendly jobs.
"It’s really a win-win-win situation," Operations Managing Partner Mike Antonelli said. "We can provide good jobs to returning service men and women, while installing lighting solutions that benefit the environment and save money for our clients. It’s a job you can feel good about."
