BLOOMINGTON, MN--(Marketwire - January 16, 2012) -

http://www.gnresound.com -- ReSound, a technology leader in hearing aid solutions, has teamed with Bosma Enterprises to provide hearing aids for multiple government agencies in the State of Indiana.

ReSound is helping transform the lives of people with disabilities, illnesses, or injuries by providing products and services in support of a multiple award contract with Bosma Enterprises, a not-for-profit company based in Indianapolis, IN. Through its multiple lines of business, Bosma provides rehabilitative services and employment opportunities to 'Hoosiers' who are blind or visually impaired.

"The mission of Bosma Enterprises centers around lowering the staggering 70% unemployment rate among people who are blind," said Heather Quigley-Allen, Sr. Director of Marketing and Resource Development at Bosma Enterprises.

Under a new contract with the Indiana Department of Administration, ordering and customer service support will be provided by employees from Bosma Enterprises who are blind or visually impaired, utilizing Bosma's recently launched e-commerce platform.

"ReSound has always been committed to helping people hear better," said Tom Woods, Vice President of Sales, ReSound.
