Press release date: July 9, 2014

Hatfield, PA – The Rodon Group has partnered with ICF Solutions, a division of Indian Creek Foundation on a facility-based work program. Since 1975, the Foundation’s mission is to “provide opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities; to live in and enrich the community throughout their lives.”

The work program includes onsite training for various jobs that are subcontracted from local businesses, such as Rodon.  Types of work include bulk mail processing, product assembly, packaging and sorting. More than 60 local businesses rely on ICF Solutions for these services.  The Rodon Group has been working with ICF Solutions since 2012 and is currently utilizing their team to assemble multiple plastic parts for a variety of their customers. The trained workers average 300,000 units per month for Rodon.

One or two staff members oversee the workers at each table and tables are set up by job skill, background and overall capabilities.  ICF Solutions also partners with Thomas Jefferson University occupational therapists who intern to help the workers with various needs and independence goals. As of June, there were approximately 86 individuals involved in the program.

According to Kevin McGrath, vice president of sales and marketing at Rodon “The collaboration with ICF has been invaluable. The assembly services they’ve provided have given us the ability to pursue additional opportunities and markets that we would not have been able to pursue otherwise.  We are very thankful to have a local community resource like ICF. “
