Connecticut home generator systems strives to find qualified employees. 

(Newington, CT)- January 10, 2012- Nationally, the unemployment rates remains above 8% but here in Connecticut one company is bucking the trend.  In the aftermath of October’s historic storm, Newington Electric Company, a CT institution for more than 50 years, has announced the formation of Connecticut Home Generator Systems (CTHomeGeneratorSystems.com).   

“During the storm, Newington Electric Company fielded thousands of phone calls and hundreds of emails from CT residents who were without power,” said Ed Ingalls, owner of Newington Electric Company. “We worked around the clock, trying to keep up with the demand.”

Connecticut Home Generator Systems has moved full steam ahead since forming back in November.  However, despite a depressed economy, the company is struggling to find qualified employees to fill a number of open positions created by the new company.

“We want to get the word out that there is opportunity here in CT,” said Ingalls.  “In order to turn the tide of unemployment it takes growth, one company at a time.”

Included on the list of open positions are a variety of positions, including:

  • Installation Department Manager
  • Service Maintenance and Repair Manager
  • Office Manager
  • Generator Service and Repair Technicians
  • Site Assessment Coordinator
  • Sales & Customer Relations

Connecticut Home Generator Systems’ parent company, Newington Electric Company, provided expert generator installation for more than twenty years.   The organization has become one of the largest Generac dealers in the state, offering 24-hour emergency service to its customers. Newington Electric is also listed on Generac’s web page as a authorized sales & service dealer and installation expert.  Now Connecticut Home Generator Systems is pushing the company to the next level.

“October really showed CT residents what life can be like without every day necessities such as power,” said Ingalls.  “Moving forward, there is now a dedicated company to tend to the needs of our state’s residents in good times and bad.”

Connecticut Home Generator Systems’ main focus will be on residential stand by generator systems and educating its customers on the choices they have when deciding on a home generator system that’s most suitable for their current situation, specifically taking into consideration the customers’ needs, requirements, concerns and physical limitations. 

To anticipate the demand for its new division, Newington Electric has expanded into an additional 2,000 square feet of office warehouse space at its current facility located at 16 Progress Circle in Newington, CT.   For more information on the positions or home generator systems safety and installation, visit CTHomeGeneratorSystems.com or call toll-free: 855-667-4819.

Newington Electric Company is the parent company of Connecticut Home Generator Systems. Newington Electric offers statewide electrical contracting services specializing in commercial and residential electrical service and repairs. The Company is a second-generation company started in 1958 by Richard Ingalls and is now owned and operated by his son Edward Ingalls.
