Bollé Safety and SourceAmerica have teamed up to create job opportunities for people with disabilities at a nonprofit agency – New Hope, based in Texas. This effort is the first time that Bollé Safety, the Global PPE Eyewear Specialists has ever assembled in the United States.
Peter Smith, CEO of Bollé Brands Group and President of Bollé Safety stated: “At Bollé Safety, we are driven by a relentless commitment to enhance society as best as we can and ultimately do our part to make the world a better place. Dating back to 1888, Bollé has always supported organizations that make a positive impact on the communities in which we operate and as we grow and develop our business in the USA, we’re very proud to partner with SourceAmerica and New Hope to help advocate for the value of people with disabilities in the workplace and increase employment opportunities. One of the key values of Bollé Safety is being the best version of yourself and a non-profit like New Hope is filled with people who are aiming to be just that. We are proud to be able to develop a partnership and we look forward to many more like it in the future.”
“The new partnership between SourceAmerica, Bollé Safety, and New Hope shows the value that people with disabilities can bring to the workplace,” said Corey Heritage, SourceAmerica’s Vice President of Business Development. “Together we are creating jobs, bringing safety eyewear to those who need it, and at the same time stimulating the economy with a product that will be assembled in America by a talented workforce of individuals with disabilities.”
