KANDU creates, promotes and provides diverse opportunities offering people with disabilities or disadvantages the ability to pursue greater independence and explore their limitless potential.
KANDU will be the beacon that fosters acceptance and inclusion of all individuals by providing fulfilling and enriching opportunities.
KANDU Industries is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides opportunities to people with disabilities and disadvantages. For more than 60 years, these work, social, and daily activities enable KANDU clients to achieve their maximum potential and enjoy the dignity of being productive citizens. 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 and 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.
