Since 2002, Powerlink has worked hard to build our reputation as one of Michigan’s most capable and reliable staffing and facilities management companies. Today I’m proud to announce the addition of an entirely new Powerlink division. Partly in response to customer demand and partly as the next step in an organic and ongoing professional evolution, Powerlink is expanding our range of service offerings to include a dedicated construction division. With several projects already underway, we have also opened a new Powerlink Construction satellite office in Warren.
Kevin Ryan will lead the new division as Powerlink’s Senior Vice President for Construction. Kevin brings more than 30 years of experience managing projects nationwide to the position, with a particular expertise in health care, commercial/office and historic renovations. He has helmed construction projects ranging from build-outs to $100+ million, multi-year projects.
It is no coincidence that Powerlink already maintains membership in the Construction Association of Michigan (CAM). Construction is a logical and intuitive next step for us as a firm. Working with schools, hospitals and manufacturers across metro Detroit, Southeast Michigan and the Midwest, we’ve learned what it means to create and maintain the kind of clean, efficient facilities that help patients heal and students learn. Along the way, we have set new standards for quality and professionalism, and our skilled, diverse and dedicated team has delivered extraordinary gains in efficiency, cost effective service and customer satisfaction.
Critically, we have acquired an intimate and sophisticated understanding of how buildings run from the inside-out, and we will use that expertise to enhance our construction expertise and lay the groundwork for each project’s long-term success. It’s exciting to see the demand for these kinds of projects continue to grow in the City of Detroit, and we are thrilled to be able to hire more people from the diverse communities where our clients do business. Over the past two years, we have doubled our revenue to $23.5 million and added more than 200 employees. With several new projects and clients already on board or in the pipeline, the future looks bright for a new—and expanded—Powerlink.
