"Remploy was established in April 1945 under the 1944 Disabled Persons (Employment) Act introduced by Ernest Bevin, the Minister for Labour. The first factory opened in 1946 at Bridgend in South Wales making furniture and violins. Many of the workers were disabled ex-miners but as the factory network grew, employment was provided for disabled people returning from the Second World War.

"Originally named the Disabled Persons Employment Corporation, Remploy adopted its current name in 1946. The name was derived from the term're-employ'." [1]
