Success Stories

Federal Solutions

Your business has the opportunity for more direct access to the largest domestic purchaser in the United States, the federal government. By partnering with Herkimer Industries and the AbilityOne Program, you can make your products more accessible to government buyers.

For nearly 70 years, the AbilityOne Program (formerly JWOD) has provided a wide array of solutions, at a fair market price, for federal customers. At the same time, we’ve created employment opportunities for people who are blind or have other severe disabilities. AbilityOne is a coordinated effort by the Commission for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled, National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and NISH-Creating Employment Opportunities for People with Significant Disabilities.

The program is a priority source of supply, available for federal customers to satisfy their needs for quality products and services delivered on time. It’s also a way to help people with severe disabilities achieve greater independence and earn wages and benefits, enabling many individuals to reduce their dependence on government support programs and market their skills into other public and private sector jobs.

By partnering with Herkimer Industries you open a whole new market for your products and gain greater visibility on the federal level, while creating jobs for people with significant disabilities. It’s a win-win.
