Bowling Green, Ohio charity, Work Leads to Independence, has moved to a larger premises, shifting its cartridge distribution business in the process.
As the Sentinel-Tribune reports, Work Leads to Independence, and its associated businesses, Laser Cartridge Express (LCE) and Scanning Solutions, have all upped sticks and transferred to a bigger premises, taking over the former Heringhaus Furniture building on Bowling Green’s Main Street.
Work Leads to Independence is a local “provider of services for people with disabilities.”
The purpose of the move was “to save rent costs” and provide Laser Cartridge Express with a “more visible storefront”. Laser Cartridge Express has been in business in Bowling Green since 1993 and has a staff of 10 people. The store offers employment opportunities to people with developmental disabilities. It specialises in the sale of “new and remanufactured ink cartridges, toner cartridges and ribbons for nearly any make and model of printer, copier or fax machine.”
The new production space is approximately “10 percent larger” and “has undergone a transformation, with a large lobby” and the required storefront for LCE, according to WLI Chief Executive Officer, Vic Gable.
“This is something that speaks to the heart of our community, something that we can all take pride in,” said Mayor Richard Edwards. “This is another wonderful chapter in this great history with working with people with developmental disabilities and helping them meet their real needs.”
The transfer to the new building commenced on 26 December 2017, with Gable describing the move as “an amazing task”.
