Unalam celebrates 50 years in Sidney

(Continued)

“All the work we do is custom,” so its important to build relationships with those who might need the products, she said. 

The company employs 40 in its two locations, with 30 in Sidney. This is down from about 150 overall in the 70s and 80s.

“Competition has forced us to do more with less,” she said. 

But with a resurgence in wood building, that comes from an increased interest in the environment and sustainability, “the future is promising,” she said.

While, “we have to stretch our imagination and product capability, if it can be done with wood, we can do it.”

Among those in attendance was Bob Kaseguma, who retired from a 45-year career with the company two years ago. He was the vice president of engineering. The company always produced a superior product, he said. The Unadilla resident said he has good memories of his years with the company.

Unadilla Mayor David Welch also was at the event. With offices still in Unadilla, he wanted to show his support.

 “It’s a great family-owned business.”
