Friendship Industries, founded in 1964, was the first organization in our community to provide commercial work and training opportunities for persons with disabilities. Without realizing it, Friendship Industries became one of the first social enterprises in the Valley.
Over the years, Friendship Industries has grown exponentially. We have grown by being a business and serving our mission well – a social mission that involves work opportunities for all – here in our integrated facility and through other community-minded businesses.
