A bit of history:
In September 1988, Sheltered Industries of the Meramec Valley, Inc. was established for the purpose of providing vocational opportunities for people with disabilities. Upon opening, the workshop employed 17 client-employees. The first work consisted of building shoe boxes for Meramec Industries.
Robert Dieckhaus, Karen Bazdresch, Ted Newton, and Gerald Douglas from Meramec Group joined Randy Bailey, Edward Link Jr., Patrick Donnelly, Don Killian, Carolyn Douglas, Alvin Siwak, Louella Emory and Gordon Baxter on the original Board of Directors.
In 2013, They merged with Washington’s Sheltered Workshop and became Empac.
