Since purchasing Priority Powder Coating, owners Dinesh Kerai, Milan Pindolia and Viral Pindolia have provided various opportunities for long term unemployed people with barriers on the Central Coast.
Dinesh Kerai, Milan Pindolia and Viral Pindolia moved to the Central Coast and purchased Priority Powder Coating in Dec 2017. Since then, they have formed a strong partnership with local recruitment service Job Centre Australia (JCAL), offering ongoing career opportunities for several people facing long-term unemployment.
“Employment is vital to financial independence and self-esteem. And, when you have been out of the workforce for a long period of time, finding an employer who is willing to take you on can be tough.
Employers such as Priority Powder Coating who provide inclusive workplace environments for people with barriers are so valuable in today’s economy.”
By providing employment to locals doing it tough, Priority Powder Coating are reaping the benefits of a diverse workplace. “It is great to see a new Central Coast business doing so well having just opened a second warehouse in Warnervale.
