PHOENIX — A Delaware company that creates jobs for people with autism has opened an innovation and technology center in Phoenix.
Wilmington-based The Precisionists, Inc. unveiled the facility located near 44th and Van Buren streets, the company announced Tuesday in a press release.
“Establishing the ITC-AZ in Phoenix enables us to further expand job opportunities for neurodiverse adults seeking to start or grow their careers,” CEO Ernie Dianastasis said in the release.
The expansion is part of TPI’s Phoenix Precision Project, which was launched in February 2019.
The new facility is in collaboration with Gov. Doug Ducey, Salt River Project, the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Phoenix Economic Council and First Place AZ that is focused on creating more employment opportunities for adults with autism and other neurodiversities.
The facility will help add hundreds of jobs for local adults with autism and other different abilities over the next three to five years.
“As the ‘most autism-friendly city in the world,’ it is essential that we continue to attract innovative companies, like The Precisionists, and help them expand,” Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego said in the release.
“We are pleased TPI is growing to include Phoenix where we promote inclusion, celebrate diversity and take pride in being able to offer opportunities as well as a highly supportive community.”
The Precisionists, Inc. focuses on providing industry best practices for delivering administrative and technology services by building teams with people who have disabilities.
