WORK ENVIRONMENT

Our products are 100% custom, which means each project is completely unique. With every order that comes through our door we encounter a new set of challenges. Boredom and monotony are simply not an option! Craftsmanship and creativity – from engineering to manufacturing to finishing – drive us and infuse a sense of pride into what we accomplish every day.

We work hard but that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun! We celebrate holidays together, have company lunches and informal barbecues on our wooded hiking trail, and celebrate safety milestones with pizza parties and monthly/quarterly cash drawings.

FAMILY AND COMMUNITY CONNECTION

College Scholarships

A Hope’s Windows scholarship opportunity is available through the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation for the children and stepchildren of Hope’s employees. Students may apply online at  CRCFonline.org.

Family Outings

Past years have included events such as our 100th Anniversary Open House & Carnival, Children’s Safety Village, Midway State Park, Lake Erie Speedway, Jamestown Jammers Bullpen Parties, Snow Tubing at Peek n’ Peak, and even a picnic with legendary NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback Jim Kelly!

United Way of Southern Chautauqua County

Our United Way fundraising event is a highlight each year featuring a catered lunch, 50/50 raffle, and dozens of raffle baskets with cash and other great prizes. Every dollar raised from employee gifts, event proceeds and corporate donation stays right here in Southern Chautauqua County to make a difference in the lives of the people in our community.

Hope’s Chadakoin Trail

Employees are encouraged to use the half-mile Chadakoin Trail throughout the year to hike, bike, cross-country ski, snow shoe or have a picnic. The trail was built and is maintained by Hope’s employees and families who gather each spring for a fun workday with outdoor projects for all ages.

Hope's Operations During COVID-19

Like all businesses and organizations throughout the United States, Hope’s has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. As you would expect, our first priority is the health and safety of our employees, representatives, distributors, and customers who all make it possible for us to consistently provide the highest level of products and services.

In light of President Trump’s “15 Days to Slow the Spread” guidelines we implemented procedures and protocols to do our part including social distancing, sanitizing, and stepping down occupancy of our campus buildings.

On Friday March 20, New York’s Gov. Cuomo issued Executive Order 202.8 requiring all non-essential businesses to reduce the number of on-site employees by 100% effective March 22, 2020. Therefore, in compliance, we have temporarily suspended manufacturing operations.

Hope’s has submitted an official request to New York State to be designated an “essential business,” which when granted would permit Hope’s to continue manufacturing and shipping product. We expect to receive a positive response within the next two days.

In the meantime, Hope’s administrative, sales, project management, and engineering personnel are working remotely from home and continue to be available to communicate with our valued customers. We are continuing to estimate, submit bids, and produce shop drawings for contract work.

To access employee contact information, please refer to our Meet Our Team page.

Hope’s will remain diligent and highly responsive to all our customers and will keep you updated with future developments.

Be safe and stay healthy!
