About Us

KANDU Industries is a 501(c)(3) providing opportunities to people with disabilities or disadvantages. For more than 55 years, these work, social, and daily activities enable KANDU clients to achieve their maximum potential and enjoy the dignity of being productive citizens. We are not about care giving… we’re about developing 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 impacts the lives of over 200 “clients” (persons with disabilities or disadvantages) along with a staff of over 100.

KANDU provides industrial services to outside companies supplying them with high quality production, quick turnaround times, and competitively priced custom services. With multiple locations, we perform high-volume packaging, assembly, and other production services.

KANDU created Best Events, a division of KANDU Industries. Best Events is widely known as the stateline’s premier caterer, rentals, linens, decorations & floral provider. We have three wonderful venues for private events as well as providing special event services over a large geographical area.

KANDU’s many on and off-site programs and commercial operations all aim at serving people with disabilities or disadvantages.

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.
