When it came to finding a fulfillment center to assemble and ship out Gelliflex® Abacus® devices, there was one place that immediately came to mind for inventor Craig Olschansky: Gompers.
For the past 70 years, the Arizona-based organization has been assisting individuals with disabilities in the Phoenix metro area to achieve independence and productivity in the community.
It’s a win-win. We’re grateful that our business model worked well with their staff and are thrilled to be empowering these individuals with employment opportunities. With a reliable and hardworking staff, we have complete confidence that they’ll do an amazing job.
Mark Botterbusch, Director of Employment Services at Gompers, launched the Business Solutions Program and said the end goal is to get these individuals integrated community employment. Currently, 125 Gompers members work on 30 active business partnerships and Gelliflex® is thrilled to be one of them. From packing and shipment to wrapping and fulfillment, members are trained and taught various skills to different jobs they are interested in.
Gompers staff will begin fulfilling Gelliflex ® Abacus® orders as soon as inventory arrives. Expect to have your Abacus® shipped out starting early January 2018.
