Bestwork goes green with Hutchinson and Direct Install
Bestwork Industries for the Blind, a not-for-profit manufacturing corporation that provides employment opportunities to people who are blind or visually impaired, turned to Hutchinson, a participating contractor for Direct Install – offered through the NJ Office of Clean Energy - for its energy saving needs. Established in 1981, Bestwork has manufactured items including military, traffic safety and construction clothing. As the unemployment rate for people who are blind is at a staggering 70%, Bestwork strives to break down the barriers to employment and empower people through training and technology. In meeting its mission of putting more people to work, Bestwork required additional facility space and moved into its current Cherry Hill location – doubling its square footage and enabling it to add commercial work in addition to its government contracts.
