Our Story

Union Diversified Industries (UDI) started in 1970 as a result of a Monroe Jaycees Project with the mission to enhance the lives of adults with developmental disabilities. Over 50 years later, our organization is still enhancing lives.

We are a hybrid company that bridges the gap between two major categories of individuals: underemployed adults with developmental disabilities and manufacturing organizations that are looking to outsource repetitive processes. We have strong partnerships and are the largest employer of adults with developmental disabilities in Union County, NC.

In addition to providing employment, we offer habilitative services to adults with developmental disabilities on our beautiful campus in Monroe, NC, in an individual’s home, or in the surrounding community.
