Arizona Industries for the Blind (AIB) provides employment and training opportunities for Arizonans who are blind. Most individuals of working age who are blind can compete successfully for jobs if they are given the opportunity to develop skills and increase their self-confidence.

AIB was established in 1952 with a mission to inspire individuals who are blind to pursue their maximum potential through creating, sustaining and improving employment while providing the highest quality products and services. United by a unique mission, the employees of AIB are committed to superior quality and 100% customer satisfaction.

Today, as a private non-profit organization, AIB is market driven and technology enabled providing quality products and services to military, government, and commercial customers. AIB operates under the AbilityOne Program and is an affiliate of National Industries for the Blind. Created in 1938, AbilityOne is a unique federal program employing nearly 48,000 Americans who are blind or have other severe disabilities, enabling them to lead more productive and independent lives.
