Exciting New Jobs Program Hits the Valley
February 2019At our first press conference earlier this month, First Place AZ, state leaders and The Precisionists, Inc. announced a landmark jobs initiative called the Phoenix Precision Project, with the goal of creating 500 new Arizona jobs for adults with autism over the next three to five years. TPI is a Wilmington, Delaware-based company that creates jobs for and trains individuals across a broad range of disabilities. Leaders welcoming TPI included Governor Doug Ducey, AZDES Director Michael Trailor, County Board of Supervisor Steve Chucri—along with representatives from current TPI clients Salt River Project, Mobile Mini and AZDES—and prospective Arizona employers. Plans are underway for TPI's third national Innovation & Technology Center, scheduled to open in Phoenix the first half of 2019.
