When searching for my company, a competing company's ad displays
When searching my company's name, a competing company's ad displays (I don't yet use Ad Sense).
I am thinking they must have added my company name into their adwords - can I get this removed from their account setup?

That depends in which country you reside. In most countries and territories, Google allows the use of a competitor's TRADENAME as a keyword. (But, not in the ad text.) This is a common practice.
In some territories, Google will investigate these cases.
Check the policy that applies to your country in the following link:
