About CNS Precision Assembly

CNS was established over 30 years ago with the primary purpose of finding economically productive and personally rewarding employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

About CNS Precision Assembly

What CNS has proven to the mainstream workforce is that focusing on a person’s abilities opens up a variety of benefits for any business. With this focus, the CNS workers have gone on to show that they can perform critical precision assembly tasks in a manner that the majority of commercial organisations simply cannot match.

In its time since establishment, CNS has built and refined unique organisational structures and techniques to encourage and nurture the talents of its Workers, providing highly productive outcomes for all of its stakeholders.

Individuals with disabilities have highly valuable and sort after skills that, given the right environments and supports, can excel in any type of commercial organisation.

Our Purpose

To provide the best service possible to encourage the capabilities of people with disabilities, assisting them to reach their full potential in the workplace environment.

Our Vision

A successful organisation that is creating sustainable, caring and gainful employment for people with disabilities.
