Hopewell client helps Boltaron

| November 5, 2012

COSHOCTON – Held each October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is a national campaign that raises awareness about disability employment issues and celebrates the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities.

Boltaron, a Newcomerstown facility, is congratulated for its long standing partnership with Hopewell Industries. Boltaron has been contracting with Hopewell Industries since 2004 for a wide variety of services for the employees of Hopewell Industries. Employees of Hopewell Industries assemble Boltaron’s promotional folders, plastic sample sets; landscaping and many other projects. At Hopewell Industries, no job is too small or too large, our employees love to work.

In early spring a new project came through to Hopewell that required wooden strips to be attached to a cardboard sheet to construct a frame which Boltaron would then use to ship their large sheets of plastic. The immediate problem was that the quality of the wooden strips was so poor that more time was spent inspecting the wooden strips than actually performing the work. The search for a new supplier was undertaken. 

Many months and three suppliers later, Jamie Hoy was discovered. After a home visit with Debbie Christmas, Job Developer for Coshocton County Board of Developmental Disabilities and Sean Ragsdale with the Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission, they became aware of Hoy’s woodshop and his interest in woodworking. 

Hoy cut some samples for Boltaron and a new partnership was formed. He has now begun his own business – Jamie’s Custom Wood Cutting. Hopewell Industries now receives the required wooden strips every Friday. His quality is exceptional. We haven’t had a single wasted board and our production rate is now where it needs to be and Boltaron is getting their constructed frames on time. Boltaron has recognized the value of the services Hopewell Industries provides and appreciates the partnership that has been formed. Contact Jamie’s Custom Wood Cutting at [email protected]
