Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands (March 11, 2010) – Three weeks after signing the contract with David Hartshorn, owner of Projetech Construction, PPC has officially broke ground at their new state-of-the-art Corporate Headquarters and Customer Service Centre. The new facility located along the Leeward Highway, adjacent to the company’s existing power plant will add to the convenience factor for persons who need to visit PPC’s customer service centre, to transact an array of business from bill payment to opening new accounts to energy management services.
PPC’s new corporate home will be situated on the Company’s approximately 17 acre plant site. The building will cover 36,000 sq ft, and will include a three storey building plus a full basement. The extensive project is scheduled to be fully completed by June 2011 and will accommodate the following departments: Administrative, Operations, Engineering, Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Corporate Communications, Safety, Environment, Training and Customer Service, including Cash, Credit, Meter Reading and Accounts.
Eddinton Powell, CEO and President of PPC stated, “We are incredibly excited to have reached such an important milestone. The overall factor driving the investment in the new facility is our commitment to deliver world class service to our customers. This new complex will greatly enhance customer service delivery, employee development, and overall corporate productivity and efficiency. Our ground breaking represents the continued commitment of our parent company, Fortis Inc, to the Turks and Caicos Islands, and has the immediate practical effect of creating jobs for our people, at a time when jobs are surely needed.”
