Unified Industries Incorporated (UII) was founded in 1970 by Dr. Theodore A. Adams, Jr., Mr. Herbert E. Long, Jr., and Mr. Joseph S. Meyer. The founders of UII shared technical orientation in acquisition logistics, engineering, and quality assurance. Having served in the U.S. Armed Forces, they believed in strong leadership, supported by precise and intense training, to realize the full potential of all workers.
Their military experience also emphasized keen attention to the quality required for performing work with the Federal government, and thus, with all public entities. Further, they shared a commitment to achieving racial and social justice by employing the talents of all people, without regard to any trait other than qualifications for the work required. With this foundation, they formed a management team, ideal for achieving ground-breaking success under the Section 8(a) program under the Small Business Act. UII “graduated” from that program in 1983.
Among the company’s satisfied customers are the U.S. Navy, U.S. Army, the U.S. Department of Interior, the U.S. Department of Energy, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Federal Railroad Administration, the General Services Administration, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Amtrak, many public transportation organizations, and many international and commercial customers. The company has successfully completed over 650 contracts.
The current business of UII reflects our long-term service in Logistics (since 1980), Program Management (since 1970), Technical Training (since 1974), Metrology and Calibration (since 1973), Applied Technology (since 1973), Public Transportation, and Quality Assurance (since 1975). UII’s Chief Executive Officer and President, Mr. Theodore A. Adams III, continues to motivate and empower our staff to reach higher levels of customer satisfaction. We provide high-quality services and products with documentation to the highest levels of standards. Mr. Adams has also made a commitment to continually harness the capabilities of portal technology, wireless communications, knowledge management, and automatic identification technology (AIT) to the service of all customers across all areas of work.
