Marshall-Starke Development Center’s industrial division is designed to provide alternate employment/extended training for adults with disabilities. We provide individuals with sub-contract work to enhance their work skills in preparation for competitive work. Our workshop offers a work place that mirrors a community employment environment, while offering individuals who are not community job ready an opportunity to become wage earners.
Real Products, which manufactures plywood reels used by wire companies, was incorporated into our industrial services in 1996. We, as an Agency, wanted a business venture to produce additional revenue for programming and to provide employment opportunities for the people Marshall-Starke serves. Real Products has enabled us to provide an integrated work environment with disabled and non-disabled working side by side to produce a quality product.
