Celebrating the 100th Birthday of UNICO on Columbus Day

As fate would have it, the 100th birthday of UNICO coincides precisely with this year’s Columbus Day. UNICO was founded on October 10, 1922, in Waterbury, Connecticut. A group of 15 men, led by Dr. Anthony P. Vastola, came together to create what has become a very special, very proud, and very unique organization.
