Manufacturing and Production Work Center
The Manufacturing and Production Work Center provides mildly and moderately disabled adults with paid work at PEP. Businesses contract with PEP’s Production Services Program because PEP is a cost-effective producer of subassemblies, mechanical and electrical assemblies, packing and bagging, inspection and sorting, collating and folding, and mailing and insertion services.
Consumers work thirty-five hours a week, supervised by full-time experienced production supervisors. Many of PEP’s contracts require workers to acquire new skills and techniques, which also serves to keep consumers focused and challenged. Consumers earn while they learn, with salary based on production and output monitored daily.
At the start of each new production job, supervisors determine the work flow and time the production activities. Then jobs are assigned to individuals according to their abilities. Supervisors work closely with consumers to provide help and encouragement when needed. Working with their peers in a supportive atmosphere, consumers learn the production process while sharpening skills like following directions, working as a team, and using communication skills.
