About Us

Hi, I’m David Horton—Executive Director for Winston-Salem Industries for the Blind, where we are proud to say Our Vision is Working. For people who are blind or visually impaired in or around Winston-Salem, Asheville, and Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, IFB provides meaningful opportunities for employment, training, and support. We have a long history—beginning in 1936—of making high quality products on-time and on-budget primarily for the US government and military. We also provide optical services to our nation’s veterans.

We are a multi-million dollar operation fulfilling contracts that are vital to our nation’s government, but we are also a promise—a promise to improve the quality of life for people who are blind or visually impaired. That is our mission and we never forget it. We hold a truly extraordinary position in the marketplace. As the nation’s largest employer of people who are blind, IFB is committed to expanding our business in order that we may provide more jobs to more men and women who would likely be unemployed.

In doing so, we transform lives. We give people the confidence and independence to contribute to society and fulfill personal dreams of having a job. Every day at IFB, people who are blind and visually impaired come to work with skill, dedication and commitment to be outstanding employees. We value them tremendously. They give us their best.

Yes, our vision is working. The proof is in the numbers. Year after year, we achieve job growth by increasing sales. But the real success of IFB always shines brightest in the lives of our employees who are so grateful for an opportunity to work and frankly, who inspire me every day.

As a team, we strive for excellence at IFB. And it should be no surprise that we achieve excellence because of excellent people—our employees, our Board of Directors, our customers, and our supporters in the community. We thank them all for their commitment. And we thank you for taking time to learn more about who we are, what we do, and why we do it.
