For Goodwill Manufacturing, 2014 saw continued growth in revenues and capabilities. To our current and new customers, we thank you for your business and your continued support of our efforts to improve people’s lives through the Power of Work.

As we head into 2015, Goodwill Manufacturing is poised for even further growth and expansion of our Goodwill Manufacturing is poised for even more growth and expansionmanufacturing / packaging capabilities. This growth in capability will aid us as we strive to fulfill our mission of providing training and employment opportunities for people we serve. Here is an example:

Ultrasonic welding: Through a partnership with a leading manufacturer of injection molded components, Goodwill Manufacturing will begin using sonic welding machines to complete a highly engineered plastics assembly. This assembly will be used in an industrial application. Over the course of the year, this will create new jobs and training opportunities. It will also enable us to look at ancillary operations to further our skill development.

This is just one example of several new manufacturing processes we will be launching along with expanding our packaging capabilities. As you consider your sources for contract packaging and assembly, please consider Goodwill Manufacturing.
