Digital Eye Lab to Receive New Business Partner Award at Arc of Westchester's Annual Employer Breakfast
Award recognizes commitment to providing employment opportunities for local residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities
HAWTHORNE, N.Y. (March 7, 2017) – Digital Eye Lab (DEL), a division of ABB OPTICAL GROUP, will be recognized at Arc of Westchester's Annual Employer Breakfast on April 26th with the New Business Partner Award.
Arc of Westchester has been connecting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as those with autism spectrum disorder, to the Westchester employment community since 1949. DEL has four employees who were recruited through Arc of Westchester and regularly partners with the organization to promote a diverse workplace.
"We are fortunate to have such a strong foundation of supporters, which made the task of selecting award winners a difficult one," said Shari Lewitt, director of career development and support services for Arc of Westchester. "This award recognizes the contribution that DEL has made to further employment opportunities for residents of our community with autism and other development disabilities."
Digital Eye Lab fabricates lenses and eyewear for optometrists across the country. The lab's recently expanded facility in Hawthorne has multiple fabrication lines, an anti-reflective coating lab, and an extensive lens finishing center. The lab's team members hired through Arc each play an integral role in the manufacturing of spectacle lenses, spanning the process from surfacing to coating to lens cleaning.
"We feel honored to receive Arc's New Business Partner Award," said Scott Pearl, managing director of DEL. "We cherish the profound impact these employees have on their co-workers, and recognize the tremendous value that they bring to our organization."
Arc of Westchester's Annual Employer Breakfast will take place in Tarrytown at the Westchester Marriott, 670 Tarrytown Road. For more information, visit ArcWestchester.org.
