Edwards Printing, LLC in Westminster honored as Medium Employer of the Year



Edwards Printing recognized for employment of people with disabilities
The S.C. Governor’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities recently honored Edwards Printing, LLC in Westminster as Medium Employer of the Year. The award, which results from nominations from throughout the state, recognizes an organization that has exemplary practices in hiring people with disabilities, making worksite accommodations and actively promoting disability awareness and workforce opportunities in the business community.





Edwards Printing, which prints and distributes newspapers both within and outside the local area, has regularly hired employees with disabilities for full-time positions through its partnership with the S.C. Vocational Rehabilitation Department (VR). Edwards Printing management is proactive in seeking qualified job candidates with disabilities, visiting the VR office to talk with clients and hosting tours of the printing facilities. The company seeks to address any barriers clients may have in attaining and maintaining employment success. On-the-job training and follow-up supports are provided by VR through this partnership to assist with employment stability.
