Former Remploy workers in Wrexham have met with a Stoke-based company, which hopes to buy their old factory and take them back on.
Disability Employment Ltd wants to provide work to the 40 employees who lost their jobs when the factory closed in August.
But the company says the Department for Work and Pensions is making the purchase difficult, saying the business plan 'doesn't show long-term sustainability'.
The DWP says it is keen to see the factory used by social enterprise organisations, particularly when used to support disabled people.
ITV Wales spoke to former employees who are keen to get back on the production line.
