About Us


Weaver Industries was founded in 1971 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing individuals with disabilities vocational training and employment opportunities. The Weaver name stems from Carlene Weaver, a strong supporter for individuals with disabilities, who was instrumental in improving the lives of many people in Summit County by advocating for meaningful vocational opportunities.

The Weaver Industries Board of Directors and Administration still champion Carlene's passion as we continue to provide increased training, opportunities and earnings for the individuals we serve. Within our distinct business divisions, Weaver continues to expand the services we provide to our business customers throughout Northeast Ohio so that we can create even more jobs for individuals with disabilities.


At Weaver Industries, our staff is committed to meeting the unique and challenging needs of those who seek vocational training and self-sufficiency. If you have any questions concerning Weaver Industries or how you can support our mission, please call (330) 379-3660 or fill out the form on the Contact page of the website.
