About Us

Our History

We seek your support in advocating to keep Essex Industries and other work centers as a viable option for those who need it.

Essex Industries is a division of Mountain Lake Services, a private, not-for-profit organization devoted to helping people with intellectual disabilities live full and abundant lives. It is one of the largest manufacturers of canoe seats and accessories. Since 1974, Essex Industries has been providing meaningful employment and job training to hundreds of individuals in an integrated work environment.
