Community Partners Come Together to Provide Lifelong Opportunities

Dec 13, 2022

Gleason-Avery partners with Finger Lakes Textiles.

Finger Lakes Textiles (FLT), a division of Mozaic, a not-for-profit organization serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, employs an integrated manufacturing workforce of 50 employees with diverse abilities. FLT has worked for manufacturers of various sizes who need additional manufacturing sources to expand their capacity, assist with high-volume projects, and perform jobs such as assembly or packaging unsuited for current machinery.

Being recently acquired by Worldwide Electric Corporation, Gleason-Avery began to expand, resulting in their management team looking for a partner without impacting their current employees or future hiring decisions. Finger Lakes Textiles (Mozaic) provided that support resulting in a win-win for both organizations. FLT works with Gleason-Avery on small assembly, packing, and prepping various items such as blower housings, gasket prep (hole punch), press assembly, and unpacking needle bearings. 

“Partnering with Gleason-Avery has allowed our organization to expand our capabilities and collaborate with our community,” says the Vice President of Clinical and Business Operations at Mozaic, Ashley Burke. “It has been a pleasure to provide a reliable and capable resource for Gleason-Avery and, at the same time, expand meaningful job opportunities for people of varying abilities.”

“The Mozaic team, led by Ashley Burke, Lisa Guernsey, and Brian Vidler, has been outstanding. From the initial meeting to establishing the scope of work and workflows to ongoing operations, they have been highly responsive, have provided exceptional service and quality, and have been very professional and personable,” says Mike Reeder General Manager from Gleason-Avery. “If you need help with your business, I recommend contacting Mozaic. They are an outstanding organization with extensive capabilities that operate professionally with excellent results that will surely add value to your operations. Gleason-Avery is very proud to support those in the community that might not otherwise have an opportunity to work and help a business grow.”
