Our Story
The Unified Group was founded in August 1998 by a core group of quality driven, independent mechanical contractors. When the consolidation movement kicked in and posed a threat to the HVAC industry, these contractors joined together to form The Unified Group.

They believed they could survive alone. However, in order to thrive they needed an organization in which they could work together with other like-minded commercial contractors, while at the same time retaining their independence.

In The Unified Group, they created an alliance that would offer them training opportunities and the chance to collaborate and share best practices with other independent contractors.

Today The Unified Group is still driven by the same quality values the association was founded on. Because the group is made up of the best contractors from all over the United States, members are able to provide the finest service available to national, regional, and local accounts.

Our members have moved beyond cooperation and into true collaboration. This is why we can say that together we make the difference.
