UNICOR is a self-sustaining, self-funded corporation established in 1934 by executive order to create a voluntary, real world work program to train federal inmates. UNICOR contributes to the safety and security of our Nation’s correctional facilities by keeping inmates constructively occupied; produce market-price quality goods and services for sale to the Federal Government; operate in a self-sustaining manner; and minimize its impact on private business and labor.

UNICOR awarded Spire a contract to supply solar cells and a contract for the Spi-Line 25 MW Turnkey Photovoltaic Module Factory located at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Otisville, New York. The Spi-Line at FCI Otisville is to be operated by inmates of the federal prison system who will be trained to find employment in the growing domestic solar market upon their exit from the facility. Modules manufactured at FCI Otisville will be sold for government installations. The contract tasked Spire with engineering a custom factory layout and the development of unique solutions accommodating inmate training, equipment usage, and security issues. Successful performance of the factory may lead to similar factories at other UNICOR locations in the US. Todd Baldau, Public Information Officer for UNICOR said, “It is important to enter the market quickly and have the factory running, staff and inmates trained, and certification completed. We are excited to be working with Spire, a United States based company who is a global leader in this field.”
