CEDAR KNOLLS, NJ - Employment Horizons has been recognized as one of New Jersey’s Top Manufacturers of the year by The New Jersey Manufacturers Extension Program (NJMEP) and also received recognition as a New Jersey Smart Workplace (NJSW) by TransOptions.

Employment Horizons made the NJBIZ list of the top 25 manufacturers, ranking as number 20, based upon number of employees.
