Anyone can make a New Year’s resolution. Here at UCEC, we’ve chosen instead focus areas where we plan to make improvements, create efficiencies or strategize a better way to move the business forward.
So, with the glitter of the New Year already receding, it’s back to work and back to business. Here is a roundup of focus areas from some members of our management team.
“In 2015, I want to learn more about the bare bones of our business. I’m interested in learning all there is to know! I’m also focused on paper reduction by increasing our use of electronic invoices and other records.”
Laura Pinkston, Credit Manager
“My focus area will be working on creating a stronger team. I will have my team cross train with each other and hopefully, with the rest of the shop. With some knowledge of each other’s jobs and duties, I believe we can see a larger view of the business. Also, we may have a tip or a more efficient way of doing things. I plan for my team to go from good to great!”
Paula Zangari, Operations Support Manager
"2015 will bring a technological advancement in my department. Paper will be a thing of the past."
Garrod Massey, Operations Support Manager

Some of us love change and others loathe it. But if you’re in the panel business, you’ll see plenty of change over the years. I certainly have.
I have never viewed UCEC as a “one-stop shop." Simply put, we build the best control panels, period.
It's our pleasure to regularly give our blog readers a glimpse into our hard-working Management Team here at UCEC. Led by our officers Mark Inboden, President and CEO, and Evan Coulter, VP of Business Operations, the team also is made up of: John Beattie, Operations Manager for Production; Terry Engledow, Technical Support Manager; Zach Fothergill, Operations Support Manager; Garrod Massey, Operations Support Manager; and Paula Zangari, Project Coordinator.
I just got back from a golf trip to one of my favorite destinations on earth...Bandon Dunes in Oregon. My good friend Evan and I played five rounds in 2½ days. The weather was really good for the Oregon coast in the middle of April, except for one round.
Editor's Note: You may have seen the post, "5 More Questions with Mark Inboden" earlier this year. We thought it was time to ask Evan Coulter, VP of Business Operations, five questions of his own. Thanks, Evan, for your insights and answers.
UCEC is a proud Colorado company. The company was born here and it’s going to stay here. The famous “spirit of the West” is present in our employees: we are hardworking, adventurous and resourceful.
Our VP of Business Operations, Evan Coulter, is a busy man. But he's not too busy to share some of his thoughts on life, business and pumpkin spice lattes on the UCEC blog. Below, we've compiled a collection of Evan's best posts for your enjoyment.
Our CEO and President Mark Inboden was recently featured in a video for the The Alternative Board (TAB). TAB brings business owners and leaders from non-competing industries in Denver, Lakewood, Wheat Ridge, Arvada, Golden and Evergreen together in a group setting – similar to a board of directors.
Change is constant at UCEC. So much so, we have a saying here: “No change, no happy.” We expect change constantly, whether it’s a request from a customer or a tweak we want to make to a project. Perhaps a requested part is now obsolete. Or perhaps the customer wants to use a different part than planned. Construction changes happen, too, in far-off places, and that affects our plans. All of these changes need to be noted in a “living” document that everyone can access.
The world needs more level-headed thinkers who sometime take a slightly negative view of things, right? I’m sure you’re all nodding, “Yes!”
