The company, founded over 10 years ago, is a Disaster Relief Contract company that designs and manufactures energy efficient and green homes for families while providing gainful employment opportunities to individuals in the Greater Huntsville, Alabama area. In 2017, the company announced that they had been awarded a $28.5Millon contract through FEMA and that this would be used to expand their operations and create new jobs in 8 states throughout the southeast.
