CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., March 30, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HomeServe USA (HomeServe), the nation's leading provider of emergency home repair services, will officially launch its new customer care center in Chattanooga, TN, with a celebratory ribbon cutting ceremony at its new facility. The new center, which began operations in November 2010, now employs close to 140 Chattanooga area residents.

According to Jonathan King, CEO of HomeServe USA, Chattanooga is proving to be the perfect location for the new center. "When a HomeServe customer is in need of assistance, we want them to have the convenience and reassurance of being assisted by a representative based here in the United States," said King. "We decided on Chattanooga because of the availability of high-quality employees combined with the robust telecommunications and data infrastructure available in the area."

Local officials helped pave the way for HomeServe to enter the area. "It has always been our priority to increase the number of businesses investing in Chattanooga and increase the number of jobs available to our residents," said Chattanooga City Mayor Ron Littlefield. "With the addition of the jobs that HomeServe now provides, along with the increase in our tax base, HomeServe has shown itself to be an important part of Chattanooga's economy."

Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger applauded the company. "HomeServe USA has moved decisively to hire local residents and launch this new customer care center," said Mayor Coppinger. "We're proud to count HomeServe among our newest existing industries."

The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at the new customer care center, located at The Pointe Centre, 1232 Premiere Dr., on Thursday, March 31st at 12 p.m. Chattanooga Chamber officials and volunteers will coordinate the event. Applicants interested in joining HomeServe as a member of their new Chattanooga call center should forward their resume to Daniel.Brady@homeserveusa.com.
