Enablers was a start-up company that manufactured, marketed and
distributed unique products specifically designed to make daily
tasks easier for people with arthritis and other disabilities. By
the end of its first year, the company outplaced the two established
competitors in sales growth and in retail placement by securing
such retailers as Wal-Mart, Walgreen’s, and Rite Aid.
Every item in this SKU line received one or more patents. Products
include: EX-Key Turner, Jar Opener & Closer, Shopping Bag Carrier,
and Lamp Switch Enlarger. Enablers was honored with the Retailer
Choice Award for “Best New Products” and the “Packaging
of the Year” Award by the National Hardware Manufacturers
Association. Enablers products were endorsed by the Arthritis Foundation.
