Labor Contracts

Reliable Labor Force

For more than 23 years ACI has provided inmate labor for some of the best known companies in Arizona. Last year alone, ACI provided over 2.7 million hours of labor to private sector companies. We’re looking for long-term relationships with Arizona companies wishing to replace outsourced skilled labor (work that was previously or currently done out of state or even out of the U.S.). We’re sensitive about taking jobs from unemployed Arizona workers and make every effort to insure that no Arizona workers lose their jobs because of this program. However, we’re happy to compete with the Chinese, Japanese, or other Asian markets, as well as Mexico and other South American countries.

We believe ACI offers a perfect alternative to the distance-outsourcing challenges many companies face. Programs can be designed to provide eight to 100s of workers. We can supply transportation to your location (with some restrictions). We also have industrial space available within prison facilities that has proven to be beneficial for some of our partners. Currently we have space available in Yuma, Winslow, Kingman, Tucson, and Douglas.

This program requires a contractual agreement, a willingness to follow closely monitored security guidelines, and a desire to work with a very motivated group of incarcerated men and women who are willing to work hard when given the opportunity. Costs begin at the Federal or State minimum hourly rate (whichever is higher) per person, plus other very moderate and reasonable security and administrative charges. Be sure to read more about the program here.
