Brief Description

IFB Solutions employs workers who are blind and visually impaired, along with sighted workers as needed, to manufacture diverse products for government clients, including the Defense Supply Center Philadelphia (DSCP) for the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy, the General Services Administration, and private industry.
Rehabilitation professionals and other Lighthouse supporters throughout the state refer potential employees. The number of employees who are blind and visually impaired has been steadily increasing to meet the needs of new product lines, and National Industries for the Blind has recognized Lighthouse for employment retention, growth, and upward mobility.
