Partnership Aids HVACR Company, Developmentally Challenged Workers

Originally published: 09.25.12 by HVACR Business Staff


Jerry Kelly Heating and Air Conditioning announced that it has partnered with Valley Industries in Hazelwood, MO, which employs nearly 200 adults with developmental disabilities through specialized project needs, such as collating, packing, assembly, parts cleaning, distribution and counting. Valley Industries will fulfill Jerry Kelly’s needs for packaging promotional items. 

“We are proud to work with a company that creates job opportunities for those with developmental disabilities,” said owner and operator Jerry Kelly.  “Valley creates an atmosphere where people who have little options for employment can successfully contribute to a local business. It's one thing to contribute to a benefit or cause, but it's a real special feeling to be part of something that helps hundreds of people on a daily basis.” 

Valley Industries’ mission is to provide dignified and meaningful employment for people with developmental disabilities, while providing outstanding quality and services to its customers. Services include kit building, packaging, shrink wrapping, blister packaging, FDA-certified pharmaceutical projects, collating, assembly, recycling, and mailing services.

In June 2011, the company earned its three-year ISO 9001:2008 certification, which ensures its quality management system and processes are controlled and will continuously improve.
