Trusted Partners to the State of California
PRIDE Industries was established in 1966 with the mission to create jobs for people with disabilities. A pioneer in social enterprise, PRIDE provides competitive services in commercial facilities, manufacturing and logistics, and recruitment and training to the federal government, Fortune 500 corporations, and small business owners who wish to make a social impact with their business dollars. In 2020, PRIDE partnered with the California Medical Association and the California Office of Emergency Services to distribute 90 million pieces of PPE to struggling small and medium-sized medical practices throughout the state.
The California Center is a California incorporated company that provides U.S. businesses a convenient and accelerated market entry platform into Asia. The organization has relationships with FDA-approved, overseas manufacturers of personal protective equipment (PPE). They were one of four organizations authorized to supply the California Governor’s office with PPE products sourced overseas during the COVID-19 crisis.
All products are sourced from FDA-approved manufacturers and are inspected and tested by SGS, a third-party global testing organization that validates product quality, accuracy, and that all products meet regulatory requirements.
