ABOUT FRW INDUSTRIES INC



Who Is FRW (Established in 1964): FRW dba Industrial Support Systems (ISS) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that has served adults with disabilities for over fifty years.  FRW/ISS History: FRW was founded in 1964. Its primary purpose was to provide programs and activities for the growing number of students with with disabilities graduating from Slover Special School and other special education classes throughout the Fontana School District.  In 1965, the workshop separated from the school district. The organization received a grant from the Department of Mental Health, allowing the organization to hire a Director and relocate to the old post building on Wheeler Avenue in Fontana. A staff of volunteer workers assisted adults with disabilities in the first activities of making pot scrubbers out of nylon net, wrapping dates in aluminum foil, packaging hobby stamps, and other simple assembly-type jobs.
In 1974 FRW filed a fictitious business statement, adopting the name Industrial Support Systems.  The organization presently serves hundreds  of individuals with disabilities.  ISS core mission and focused from 1964 until present is “Achieving Independence through Employment” for their consumers. FRW/ISS is committed to maintaining a stable environment wherein  individuals with disabilities are provided services and support that enable them to overcome barriers to employment. While maximizing their full employment potential.  A few employment opportunities are sub-contracted work via Ability One which has offered our consumers the opportunity to package and assemble military badges for the federal government for over twenty two years. In addition the organization has contracts with various solar and other local companies, within the Inland Empire,  producing products, assembling, packaging, labeling, and sorting their products to meet their fullfillment needs.
