KANDU Industries has been providing work opportunities to people with disabilities for more than 40 years. This service enables KANDU workers to achieve their maximum potential and enjoy the dignity of being productive citizens. At KANDU, we’re not about care giving…we’re about independence. In 1961, a small group of parents and supportive community leaders met to find ways to meet the employment needs of their sons and daughters with disabilities. By 1964, KANDU obtained its first outsourced work contracts from Parker Pen and American Baton companies. Over the years, KANDU has experienced tremendous growth and today, KANDU employs over 200 “clients” (persons with disabilities) along with a staff of 40, placing KANDU as one of the leading not-for-profit work centers in the Midwest.
KANDU has provided industrial services to over 60 companies supplying them with high quality production, quick turnaround times, and competitively priced custom services. With continued opportunities in outsourcing and to accommodate the increased demand for high-volume packaging and assembly, KANDU expanded its production operations into the former Parker Pen/Gillette Arrow Park facility, adding 60,000 sq ft. of production area.
Located in Janesville, Wisconsin, near the Wisconsin-Illinois border, KANDU Industries, Inc. is convenient to Chicago – O’Hare, Milwaukee – Mitchell, Madison and Rockford airports, and Interstate highways I-90/94, I-39, and I-43.
