Job and Business Opportunities

Chester was once a rich town especially due to the booming automobile industry and numerous shipyards. The economy of the city plummeted to new depths after the decline of these two industries in 1960’s. Employment opportunities dwindled and nearly half of the city’s population moved to other parts of the nation.

Currently, the city of Chester is making continuous efforts to revive city’s economy, especially the manufacturing sector. The city has received $1.36 billion since 1996 in public and private investment. Chester has used these funds to invest in various development projects, expand and improve housing, restore their park system, attract new business and create thousands of jobs over the past two decades.

Many companies from different sectors are operating in Chester. For instance, AdminServer, a big information technology company specializing in creating software for insurance companies is based in Chester. The Power Home Remodeling Group, a renowned exterior decoration company, also has its headquarters in the city. Another large employer in the city is Chester State Correctional Institute. The city is also becoming a center of harness racing after the establishment of Harrah’s Casino and Racetrack in 2005.

Recent Development Projects

Currently, there are reasonable amount of jobs in construction industry as a lot of housing projects are underway in the city. Some of the most important of these projects are Pentecostal Square, Wellington Heights Homeownership (WHH) Phase II, Union Square and Czorer Hills development project. These projects mostly cater to the needs of low and middle income families. Most importantly, they are creating a large number of job opportunities for the city residents as well.
