From the beginning, the founders of Hope Power & Industrial Inc. realized the industry demand for a quality manpower provider to Construction – Power – Industrial customers. Our company is operated by a team of industry professionals with experience and firsthand knowledge in the markets we serve. That is exactly how HP&I was built.
