How Nehemiah Manufacturing Co. creates jobs—and second chances

Everyone deserves a second chance. That’s what motivated Dan Meyer and Richard Palmer when they founded Nehemiah Manufacturing Company in 2009. They wanted to bring manufacturing into the inner city of their hometown of Cincinnati, OH, and their goal was to hire people with backgrounds that would typically make it difficult for them to get a job. Some employees may have no work history or a criminal record, but Nehemiah believes they need the opportunity to prove themselves. Dan and Richard turned to the web to help their business grow, expanding Nehemiah from just 10 employees to 110 today.
