Unified Group Services Celebrates New Addition

June 23, 2008. (Anderson, Indiana) – To celebrate its expansion, Unified Group Services (UGS) hosted a Ribbon Cutting and Open House at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, June 23 at the East 67th Street location. Locally owned Fredericks, Inc. was the general contractor of the project which added 9,000 square feet to UGS’ existing 13,000 square foot facility.

Mayor Kris Ockomon announced, “This project represents not only a building investment of $850,000 but also fifteen new jobs with an additional 60 jobs anticipated within the next five years.” UGS is a third-party administrator that processes medical, dental, and vision claims for self-funded group healthcare plans, and presently employs 100 in the Anderson facility.

The privately owned, 12-year old company offers employee benefit plan administration to nearly 120 employer groups throughout the Midwest. President Richard L. Mousty believes personal contact, in an industry that thrives on automated attendants, is the driving force behind the company’s steady growth. “We like to conduct modern business in an old fashioned way, with the personal touch of receptionists answering the phones, and a dedicated account manager for each client. I am personally involved in the day-to-day activities of our company and every client we have knows that they can call and personally speak to me. We believe that personal touch gives us an edge over our competition.”

Unified Group Services was ranked as the “4th Largest Indianapolis Area Employee Benefits Services Firm” in 2006, 2007 and 2008 by the Indiana Business Journal. UGS was also listed by IBJ as one of the “Fastest Growing Indianapolis Area Private Company” for 2001-2002, 2002-2003 and 2003-2004.
