RELEASED: April 19, 2021

Tallassee Industrial Development Board (IDB), the City of Tallassee, Elmore County Commission, and Elmore County Economic Development Authority (ECEDA) are proud to announce the ribbon cutting of a new business. UnicusID, Inc. has opened its new corporate headquarters and  started production in the Tallassee International Business Center  located in the Tallassee Industrial Development Park. They will initially employ 30 people with a capital investment of two to three million dollars.

UnicusID manufactures biometric wrist bracelets which provide technology to track a person passively and actively via random and specific biometric check ins. This modern approach offers advantages over traditional ankle monitors. UnicusID owns the Mobile Biometric Authentication Platform, along with thirteen issued patents. This platform allows many opportunities to  “prove We Are Who We Say We Are”.

Elmore County Commissioner Mack Daugherty expressed excitement about the news.  “We are proud that UnicusID has chosen to bring next level technology and good paying jobs to Elmore County. The ability for Elmore County and ECEDA to partner in this ground floor opportunity is exciting. We fully expect great things in the future. Many years ago, the Tallassee IDB had the foresight to construct and manage a business incubator which has led to opportunities such as today’s announcement.”

Mayor John Hammock applauded the announcement by stating “We are proud to welcome UnicusID to Tallassee.  Tallassee strives to promote economic development with a good work life balance for our citizens.  Tallassee is excited for the employment opportunities that UnicusID will bring to Tallassee and we look forward to watching their business grow with Tallassee in the years to come”.

Executive Director of the Tallassee Industrial Development Board Richard Dorley said “It is great to partner with UnicusID in its innovative proprietary technology biometric system.  In a day when it is even more important to be exactly who you say you are, UnicusID provides that vital step of identity proof.”

UnicusID’s management are enthusiastic as well.  “After an extensive nationwide location search, we knew Tallassee is where we needed to be” stated Vice President of Sales Randy Montz. “Tallassee is located close to major research universities that will assist us in our research and development as well as our production needs. The complex has the necessary room for our anticipated expansion. An international airport is conveniently located two hours away. It is also located on a major interstate artery. We look forward to a long mutually beneficial relationship with Tallassee and the surrounding areas.”
