WORK FORCE

Our "in-house" work force consists of men and women who reside in Ogle County and either have a disability or who are disadvantaged. Our structured and closely supervised setting ensures quality workmanship. Prompt turnaround time and competitive prices have become our trademark. Our 28,000 square foot facility has a 7,000 square foot warehouse, three loading docks, and is equipped with a complete 100 P.S.I. loop compressed air network.

For long term and high volume contracts, we are willing to purchase special equipment necessary for the timely and efficient completion of quality work.

Since 1969 the Village has satisfied the production needs of a diverse variety of businesses and we are committed to building on this reputation.

Some of our Equipment:

• WIRE WELDER • CONVEYORS • PNEUMATIC NAILERS • RADIAL ARM, BAND SAWS, CHOP SAW • AUTOMATIC COUNTING EQUIPMENT • COMPUTER & PRINTER FOR MASS MAILING • DRILL PRESS • HEAT SEALERS & DROP SEALERS • SCALES • VEHICLES FOR CUSTOMER DELIVERIES • FORK LIFT
COLOR CARD MACHINES • LAMINATING MACHINE • COMPUTERIZED UPS SHIPPING SYSTEM •
 L-BAR SEALING/SHRINK TUNNEL • SHREDDERS • FOLDING (LITERATURE) MACHINE

During a given year, numerous industrial jobs are bid on and secured from industry and business. These subcontracts provide our "in-house" population with an opportunity to perform tasks ranging from the routine to complex.

Our relationship with the business community has been built on a reputation of QUALITY CONTROL, COMPETITIVE PRICES, and PROMPT DELIVERIES. No job is too small, and if we don't have the necessary equipment, it will be leased or purchased. We are aware of the expectations of today's industry, and wish to be a part of their continued growth.

An important aspect of our work program is subcontract jobs from area industry. Village of Progress consumers are proficient at packaging, labeling, shrink wrapping, collating, bagging, heat-sealing, assembling, salvaging, and many other types of subcontract tasks.
MANUFACTURING

Although subcontract work produces a substantial share of our sales and income, most training is accomplished by way of our own businesses. In addition to our Village Cleaning Service, we manufacture color cards for textile companies world wide. To our knowledge, we are the largest fabricator of color cards in the United States.

WORK IN A RURAL SETTING

Our alliance with the business community remains strong and serves as an example of how persons with disabilities are capable of assuming an active and meaningful role in today's world of work.

Through the years, the Village has placed increasing importance on the value of work. Whether it occurs "in-house" as a result of subcontracts, in the community by way of our Cleaning Service, or employment of a consumer at a community establishment, the fact is that nearly everyone measures his or her worth in terms of productivity. We recognize our responsibility to meet this most basic of human needs and anticipate an ongoing positive relationship with industry and business.
