SIMV, Inc. (Sheltered Industries of the Meramec Valley, Inc.) is a growing, successful packaging and assembly facility that has been located in Sullivan, Missouri for over 20 years. With the support and financial backing of the Franklin County Board for the Handicapped (now known as Developmental Services of Franklin County), SIMV was established in September of 1988 for the purpose of providing employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
Our grand opening was held in April of 1989, six months after the beginning of business operations. SIMV opened by providing employment for 17 (client-employees). By the end of our first year in business the company had grown to nine staff members and 31 (client-employees).
The original Board of Directors included Randy Bailey, Gordon Baxter, Karen Bazdresch, Robert Dieckhaus, Patrick Donnelly, Carolyn Douglas, Gerald Douglas, Louella Emery, Don Killian, Edward Link Jr., Ted Newton and Alvin Siwak.
SIMV began by providing maintenance and grounds-keeping services for the Saint Clair rest area but soon expanded the business to incorporate the production services that we offer today. Flexible film packaging, shrink-wrapping, vibratory metal finishing, collating and hand assembly are just a few of the many services offered to customers looking for custom packaging solutions.
In September of 2000, we relocated to our current location at Airport Road in Sullivan, Missouri. This facility provides the space necessary to accommodate the expanded services offered to our customers. In 2006, additional warehouse space was added to meet the growing demand for our top-quality, on-time services. SIMV has invested to build a small trucking fleet, including tractor-trailer combinations, to meet the logistical needs of our customers. The result is a state-of-the-art facility that provides optimal production and transportation capabilities.
SIMV continues to develop valuable quality assurance services that ensure the highest standards for all of our packaging and assembly services. Our customer satisfaction and ISO certification are the result of our commitment to quality production services that efficiently meet the specific needs and requirements of our customers. Through vision and dedication, SIMV consistently delivers exceptional results to our manufacturing partners while providing meaningful employment to individuals impacted by disabilities.

Person to Person
People with flu can spread it to others up to about 6 feet away. Most experts think that flu viruses are spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Less often, a person might also get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth or nose.
(To avoid this, people should wash their hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. Linens, eating utensils, and dishes belonging to those who are sick should not be shared without washing thoroughly first.
