We Partner with Non-Profits to Provide Work with Purpose

The Flower Cart Group, a Canadian non-profit organization that provides job skills training and employment opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities, has been working with Michelin’s manufacturing site in Waterville, Nova Scotia, since 1998. Flower Cart employees provide services such as cleaning machines, inventory and supply delivery duties, and separating rubber products to be reutilized in the tire manufacturing process. Workers with intellectual barriers are often overlooked by other companies. Many come to Flower Cart and Michelin with little or no employment experience that makes finding employment a challenge. Working with Michelin gives them a sense of purpose, as well as reliable income, a dependable schedule, a manageable workload, and a supportive team. Flower Cart contract workers are a visible and valued part of the Michelin team.

“Michelin believes that having vibrant and thriving communities is important to the success of our plants. Everyone has the right to meaningful and fulfilling employment. Michelin and Flower Cart share an unwavering commitment to create a positive and inclusive work environment for all, so this partnership has become a model of what can be achieved through kindness, cooperation and accommodation.” —Greg Wagner, Facility Personnel Manager, Michelin Waterville
