About MDI

We are a social enterprise which means we operate like a for-profit business, but we are always accountable to our mission. It’s not about growing revenue; it’s about developing people and growing job opportunities. From production to leadership, people with and without disabilities work side-by-side to foster an inclusive culture to meet customer needs.

Our Beliefs

Serve people with disabilities by offering inclusive employment opportunities and services

Meaningful employment opportunities for all people with disabilities

Our values reflect a common set of beliefs about what we do
and how we act with both internal and external customers.
These values reflect the collective energy and spirit of our organization:

Employee First | Customer Focused | Respect | Do the Right Thing | Empower Individual Ability


MDI guarantees high quality standards to both our employees and customers. These standards provide increased outcomes of our products and services.

“Working here is so fulfilling. You get to embrace different people and interact with people from all walks of life despite their religion race gender or disability status. When employees share experiences about life, and the challenges people experience and what it means to be part of the MDI team, there is nothing better than that.”

“Here, my ideas matter. Even if they are not used, there's at least a discussion to find the right course of action. It’s a 'family-like' culture here, something I’ve never seen. Everyone cares about their job and for others, picking each other up when we need to.
