February 1 - Unified Celebrates 25th Anniversary
Providing great customer service in all aspects of business operations
Unified Group Services, Inc. was founded in 1996 in the sunroom of the home of owner and president, Richard L. Mousty. He and co-founder Faith Hailey were disillusioned with changes made by the new owner of their previous company which resulted in poor customer service.
Their commitment to great customer service caused Unified to quickly outgrow the sunroom and move into offices in Pendleton, Indiana. In February 2004, Unified transferred operations to their new 13,000 square foot facility in Anderson, Indiana.
By 2008, the company had added 9,000 square feet to its existing facility in order to provide space needed for current and future growth. The Unified staff has grown from its two founders to over 140 employees and provides administration for more than 150 customers. With this growth, Unified Group Services has stayed true to its core value of providing great customer service in all aspects of business operations.
In 2020, Unified completed an expansion to their office of more than 11,000 square ft. This allows Unified ample space for further growth with the addition of claims processing rooms, offices, and personal exercise suites. The suites further enhance the overall well-being of our valued employees and our commitment to our workplace culture.
On February 1, 2021, Unified Group Services celebrated its 25th Anniversary.
Based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous, third-party survey, Unified Group Services has been named a Top Workplace 2023 by the Indianapolis Star. We are so proud of the culture we’ve all created here at Unified—and we certainly couldn’t do what we do without our talented and dedicated team!
