Neotech Honored for Disability Employment

Craig and Nick - Disability Employment

Recognized during National Disability Employment Awareness Month

Neotech was proud to receive two Certificates of Recognition for employing people with disabilities. One from the California State Assembly and one from the California State Senate. 

The company and two of its team members were honored during the Santa Clarita Valley Mayor’s Committee Luncheon in October. Mayor, Jason Gibbs, served as the Master of Ceremonies for the special gathering celebrating National Disability Employment Awareness Month.

Neotech President, Craig McCrary, and Product Assembler, Nick Abrahms, were invited to serve on the panel of employers and their employees with disabilities. Guests, who paid to attend, asked business questions of the panel.

When asked by one guest, “what is your dream job?” Abrahms pointed to McCrary and replied, “my dream job is to have his job,” which drew laughs and applause from the audience. He graciously added, “but not until he retires.”

Abrahms and McCrary were also awarded Certificates of Recognition.

Neotech often teams with local organizations that have work programs for people with disabilities. Nick Abrahms is a full-time employee who was hired on through Pleasantview Industries Inc. via their workplace program. He celebrated his 16th year of employment at Neotech in 2023. Neotech also employs Sarah, a part-time team member with Down Syndrome, who also came from Pleasantview.

Additionally, Neotech has a team from Desert Haven Enterprises. The crew consist of four team members with developmental disabilities and one job coach. They work part time and contribute daily to assembly and packaging tasks. The team technically works for a different organization, but they are every bit Team Neotech.

Neotech is an equal opportunity employer and employees with disabilities have long been part of the culture. They enrich our team and add lot of smiles to the building. We’re incredibly happy to have them as part of our workforce.
