Boston based startup company, CompanyWide, offers help to victims of Hurricane Florence by making free services for rebuilding projects
The damage to buildings and other structures in North and South Carolina by Hurricane Florence will require huge investments to repair. As with other natural disasters of such magnitude, the rebuilding process involves hiring professional contractors and construction companies to help get the affected areas back on track. To assist, CompanyWide, a Boston based startup company that has made strides in revolutionizing the building and construction industry by helping construction workers show the people that need them their good reputation and by helping construction companies and other institutions that are in need of construction services hire quality help, announced that it will make their online service free of all charges to anyone who needs to be connected to construction professionals due to the hurricane.
“Rebuilding after a hurricane is painful enough. The last thing anyone should have to pay for is getting connected to help,” said Alexander R. Neary, President of CompanyWide. “There is a national construction labor shortage going on right now, and some services take advantage of this to boost their bottom line when there is a disaster. We would rather say ‘what can we do to help?’” Therefore, the startup is contributing to restoration efforts by connecting those that are in need with construction professionals to help smooth the process of hiring help and rebuilding.
To access the free services, affected businesses, construction companies and those in real estate should use the publicly available website code, FLORENCE, on CompanyWide.com, which will allow them to use the connection services offered by CompanyWide at no cost. CompanyWide’s management has stated that the code can be used as many times as needed for as long as it takes to bring things back to normal. The company’s founders stated they hope this will bring a measure of relief to people that were affected by the hurricane as they begin the search for quality service providers to help rebuild.
