Services for Employers
MRCI partners with employers to meet business needs and serve as an ongoing resources in diversity integration.
Chris Vorwerk has an eye for detail and design. It’s part of what prompted her to start her business, New Ulm-based United Commercial Upholstery, many years ago. She and her husband, co-owner Phil Vorwerk, take great pride in designing beautiful upholstered seats for golf carts and boats. Products you have to see to appreciate. Turns out their ability to look beyond the surface, though, has been one of their most rewarding business and personal ventures.
“When Tom Rivers walked in here and asked if we had interest in hiring a blind individual, I just didn’t really see how it could work in our business. I just didn’t see how the young man he mentioned could help us with sewing and upholstery without having visual feedback,” says Phil.
