Custom Assembling & Packaging Services (CAP)

There is a workforce in the United States, consisting of 7 million people eager to work for you. They’re people with developmental disabilities. The statistics are numbing: 88% of working age adults who have a developmental disability are unemployed.

Employment is a critical component of community living for any adult, including people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Work is more than a means to economic self-sufficiency, it also is an important way for individuals with disabilities to contribute to their communities, build a network of social relationships, and create opportunities for lifelong learning. Yet people with disabilities are confronted with numerous barriers to employment to include prejudice, discrimination and fear. The good news is that YOU can be a part of the solution while gaining access to well-trained, productive employees that are highly motivated to work.

Oren's Kitchen

“We are very excited to have partnered with CAF and have them package and ship our products. Their customer service is very good; they are always open for feedback and eager to do their work perfectly. By giving them the task of packaging and shipping we freed our time to concentrate on creating our Artisan Nuts.”

Cocoa Rustica

“It is a pleasure working with everyone in the CAP program at Precision Industries.  Ours is a values-based business and we find the values of Precision Industries program sync perfectly with our own. The grinding, stamping, labeling and packing functions required for our product are well-suited to the skills and abilities of the PI employees.  The quality is closely supervised by CAF staff/management and the pricing is substantially better than a commercial fulfillment center. Additionally, with its vast warehouse and refrigeration facilities, Precision Industries is able to accommodate our needs as well as those of many others. I recommend their services to those seeking a balance between quality and affordability with an emphasis on shared values.”
