Unalam: A history of innovative, sustainable wood manufacturing

In 1892, the Van Cott family began selling lumber in Unadilla, NY. In 1906, we made the first Unadilla silo, beginning a product line that would serve farmers until the 1980s. To further our commitment to farmers the Unadilla Silo Company experimented with glue-laminated barn rafters in 1928. By 1963, the glulam business had picked up steam and we expanded our laminated products division into a new facility in nearby Sidney, NY where we continue our custom wood component production today.

For more than a century, Unalam has built its reputation on a constant commitment to quality and an eye on the future of design, architecture and construction.

Today’s leaders at Unalam continue to embody the spirit of tradition meeting innovation. Now, with members of the sixth generation of the Van Cott family working, we continue the tradition of strong and beautiful wood construction products manufacturing.

Unalam is looking for new team members.

We offer a generous benefit package, including health and dental insurance and an employer matcher 401k. Our positive business philosophy creates a fun work environment for all employees.
