Over 50 years ago, a group of parents wanted to bring more choices to the lives of their children who lived with an intellectual disability. This led to the founding of ARC Industries in 1962, which provided new options for people living with an intellectual disability, including employment and recreational activities. In 1986, the company changed its name to Versatech Industries and in 2012 became ImagineAbility.
Today, ImagineAbility supports over 200 people at our two locations through contract packaging, community based services, supported employment, and recreational activities. Over the years, the focus has been on business operations and contract packaging. This still forms a part of our operation but the focus has shifted to providing individualized services based on personal goals and dreams.
