Friendship was founded on the philosophy of work.
Friendship is a manufacturing facility. You may not know it but our employees and our customers do.
We provide jobs. Why? Jobs are important..for income, yes…BUT more than that.
Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945); 32nd U.S. President
Friendship Industries develops…not just a job…but a person’s joy in achievement. With your support, Friendship Industries works with each person to grow and develop to their full potential.
We can work together to provide the thrill of achievement and happiness that work can bring to so many.
WE NEED YOUR HELP

…with your help to create job opportunities for persons with disabilities.
Friendship Industries fills a need in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County by being a business that employs our citizens in our integrated manufacturing facility as well as in the community.
- Guided by our mission to serve persons with disabilities by developing and maintaining employment options in integrated work environments.
- As a collection of businesses: contract packaging; document destruction; fulfillment & warehousing; and government contracting.
- Because that is both our business and our mission. By providing goods and services to the commercial world, we provide work opportunities.
Develop and maintain employment opportunities for persons with disabilities in integrated work environments.
We work but our job is growing…every year the number of persons with disabilities increases. Today, over 12% of the population has at least one form of disability and over 35% are unemployed.
We work with our employees providing rehabilitation staff, job coaches, and needed physical work site adaptations. Friendship Industries offers transportation to and from our facility. That may seem like a lot but our goal is to increase work success for every person.
We work to provide rehabilitation programs so Friendship Industries can help meet each person’s goal.
