Single Source Commemorates 50th Anniversary With Scholarship Gift


WARWICK, R.I.—December 10, 2021—Single Source Disaster Recovery Specialists, a full-service property damage cleanup and reconstruction company based in Rhode Island, recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. Single Source commemorated the milestone with a gift funding a four-year scholarship to the Carpenter Apprenticeship Program at Roger Williams University.

At the company’s 50th anniversary celebration on December 2, scholarship funds totaling $8,080 were presented to Gena Bianco, dean of University College, and Dawne Pezzuco, director of the Center for Workforce and Professional Development of University College, Roger Williams University.

Mike Pomeranz, president of Single Source, noted that the scholarship is a tribute to his grandfather, Sumner Pomeranz, who founded the family-owned and operated business in 1971. “We wanted to give something back to the industry in which our family has achieved such incredible growth and success over the past 50 years,” Pomeranz said.

“We chose to support Roger Williams University’s Carpenter Apprenticeship Program because skilled carpenters are highly valued and in great demand within the disaster restoration industry. They are essential workers who provide high-quality repair and reconstruction of residential and commercial properties severely damaged or destroyed by water and or fire. To our customers, all our workers are greatly appreciated, but our skilled carpenters are thought of as heroes because they’re the ones who complete the last phase of the restoration process and deliver the final product—a fully restored home or business that’s often much better looking than it was before,” Pomeranz added.

Single Source is a family-owned, full-service disaster recovery and restoration contractor specializing in water and flood damage cleanup; fire, smoke, and soot cleanup and restoration; mold remediation; asbestos abatement; and biohazard cleaning and disinfection. Recently, Single Source moved its complete reconstruction services in-house and now employs a full-time construction staff. In the family tradition, brother, Sean Pomeranz oversees Single Source’s new construction division.

During its fifty years in business, Single Source ownership has spanned three generations of the Pomeranz family. It is now owned and operated by brothers Mike and Justin Pomeranz. The brothers purchased the company from their father, Jack Pomeranz, who bought the company from his father, Sumner Pomeranz.

Reflecting on the company’s 50-year history, both Mike and Justin feel fortunate to take part in their family’s legacy. “It took hard work, ongoing investments in employee training and equipment, and implementing the latest advancements in restoration processes and techniques to grow Single Source into the major disaster restoration company that it is today. Hopefully, keeping to that formula will allow us to continue to grow well into the future,” Mike said.  “Being successful means not only evolving through education and technology to stay ahead of the competition but also taking the time to actively listen and work collaboratively with customers and other business partners to forge a trust that builds and strengthens these relationships.”

“To put it simply, what customers and insurance companies want is a restoration company they can trust who does high-quality work and helps return damaged properties to their pre-loss conditions as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible,” Justin explained.  “Our family has worked diligently over the years to make Single Source precisely that type of company.”
