In 1973, a synergy of concerned parents and citizens fostered a pro-active, service-oriented, community-based program called Flathead Industries. Still flourishing today, this concern and commitment to full inclusion for all its residents is one of the components that makes the Flathead Valley a wonderful place to live.
Flathead Industries is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation, governed by a volunteer board of directors, which provides a variety of services to persons with disabilities. Our mission statement reads – “Creating Opportunities for People with Disabilities”.
Knowing that our employees are critical to our success, we enlist their core values, such as Encouraging individual accountability in the quest for creating new and higher standards;
Ensuring fair, honest, respectful treatment to everyone we encounter by listening with an open mind;
Being driven to exceed expectations at every opportunity; and Being focused on, and proactive to, the changes of our industry.
We use these values to build our visibility and respect in the community as we strive to develop new facilities and programs designed to enhance the lives of those we serve.
