Serving our customers throughout Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, and Western New York, we take great pride in being stewards of our community.
An Entrepreneurial Dream becomes a nationwide leader in restoration
ServiceMaster was founded in 1929 and was originally a moth-proofing company. Marion E. Wade, the founder, was previously a minor league baseball player who decided to begin his entrepreneurial journey right in his home. His belief that employees and customers should be viewed with dignity and respect helped his company grow over the years, exponentially.
For over 60 years ServiceMaster has provided services to those in need. In 1947 the company was incorporated with only half a dozen employees and yearly revenue of $125,000. Now, the company employs more than 50,000 people nationwide and earns over $7.8 billion annually. 5,400 of our companies are independently owned and operated.
FOUNDING PRINCIPLES: the ServiceMaster Restore Code of Conduct
We continue to uphold Wade’s original principles in order to better serve our community. This means we…
- Treat people with dignity and respect (especially our customers, employees, and partners)
- Do the right thing– always
- Are accountable and there for those we serve.
Your local ServiceMaster technicians: Restoration by Advanced
With only $7,000 and a dream to their name, Chris, Jack and Judy Hitz decide to start a carpet and upholstery cleaning company after noticing an apparent lack in the Erie County, PA, and Chatauqua County, NY markets. The first base of operations opens in September 1995, in Ripley, NY, (among the many acres of Concord Grapes) where the Hitz family was raised.
Throughout the years, the company grows both its size and community involvement to provide better restoration services in fire, water, and other damage related areas. In 2005, Advanced is moved to the center of Erie to better serve it’s clients, and after building years of experience and training, Chris Hitz eventually takes over the business in 2007. In 2013 ServiceMaster Restoration by Advanced was born to help corporate cover a broader area.
