2009 ARC Industries

The fall 2009 Ideation Competition challenged students to help resolve a long-standing concern for Evansville ARC Industries - sustainable workforce growth.  By tapping into the collective intelligence of the USI student populous, we hope to expedite and manage solutions for Evansville ARC Industries' concerns. 

ARC Industries employs over 300 workers every year, and over 200 of the employees have developmental disabilities. They offer one-source solutions utilizing flexible, innovative, cost-effective manufacturing processes. ARC also provides 'quick-to-market' alternatives for both low and high-volume operations.
