Breaking barriers: Collaboration between Lapeer Plating & Plastics and Harmony Hall - The County Press
LAPEER — Harmony Hall, a program offered by Lapeer County Community Mental Health (CMH), plays a vital role in facilitating the integration of individuals with mental illness into the workforce. Lapeer Plating & Plastics, an automotive component manufacturer located on DeMille Road in Lapeer, has recently received recognition for their successful employment partnership with Harmony Hall and CMH.

Being a good corporate citizen can also have rewards for the company, as Lapeer Plating and Plastics has found out.
A manufacturer and electroplater of Class A, high-visibility automotive components, the Michigan company found itself, like most companies, with a need to hire more employees after the pandemic.
So when the local Lapeer County Community Mental Health approached them two years ago about partnering on employment opportunities for some of its clients, Lapeer Plating and Plastics jumped at the opportunity.
When asked what makes Michigan-based, Class A automotive components manu-facturer Lapeer Plating & Plastics, Inc. (LP+P) unique, Human Resources Administrator Joe DuBreuil is quick to reply.“It’s the fact that we’re kind of a one-stop shop. We do injection molding, chrome plating, and assembly in one building. I think that’s pretty unique for manufacturers; usually, it’s just one or the other. Raw material comes into our building, and ﬁnished parts come out,” he states. READ MORE ABOUT IT HERE
LPP has had over 22 employees working for them through various CMH programs.
“The aim of this employment
partnership is not only to provide job
opportunities but also to promote
inclusivity and reduce the stigma
against individuals facing mental
health challenges,” says Kevin Mountz,
Director of Employment Services at
Lapeer CMH. Read more about it here
