A new business started by ex Remploy workers plans to expand in the future, offering jobs to other former disabled employees.
The factory based in Fforestfach, Swansea will re-open and begin manufacturing and assembling furniture.
"When the Remploy factory closed in 2012 we wanted to ensure that the high quality skills within the workforce weren't lost.
With this new worker co-operative, we aim to develop a successful and profitable business and become a leading manufacturer and sub-contracting assembler within the UK market.
As we grow, we intend to operate as a financially viable workers co-operative which supports our disabled and disadvantaged workforce and offers training and employment opportunities to the wider Swansea community."
