I’m not really into making New Year’s resolutions. Goals, sure. But resolutions? Not really my thing.
One of my goals for UCEC in 2016 is to improve both our customer and employee experience. We’ll achieve this goal by several initiatives, some of them centered around fun and uplifting events.
Speaking of “uplifting,” this is what Terry Engledow faced when he returned from vacation last week:
You might have seen this picture on Twitter (@UCECBuilt). Terry was definitely surprised! (That’s 1,500 balloons, in case you’re wondering.)
I’m inspired by our great relationships with customers. Other companies inspire me as well, such as Moosejaw. They are a Minnesota-based discount adventure gear supplier with a sense of humor. I really like their corporate communications. Although we are in different industries, I can see similarities between MooseJaw and UCEC.
We like to have personality in UCEC’s blog, Twitter feed and in-person events. Instead of a faceless panel shop, our customers and readers can learn more about the great people who make up UCEC’s team. In our blog, you can hear from various personalities. We can’t sell you a sleeping bag, but you can read about camping in national parks, hiking through Peru or the picturesque Irish landscape. We hope that through our written communications, you can get a glimpse of who we are in 2016.
Evan is Vice President of Business Operations.
More Great Stories from UCEC
U.S. manufacturing is on an upswing, as the Labor Department reported that manufacturers nationwide added workers last month at the fastest pace in more than four years.
I put my daughter on the bus to middle school last week, and like any parent, I thought of the passage of time. From tiny infants to adolescents headed off to the wider world, kids are a great reminder of grasping what’s important to you.
Editor's Note: Several members of the UCEC team recently returned from Monterrey, Mexico where we helped our customer modify and expand some panels they had onsite. This trip made us remember a similar journey in February 2016.
What's the magic behind the shop? We have plenty of ideas...starting with these three, below.
In a recent story by CompanyWeek, I was quoted as saying, “Keeping on the front end of innovation has remained a constant (for UCEC)....technology is a huge driver of the panels we build.”
When I hear the term “UCEC Built,” I think of the end product (panels) as a collaboration of an entire group of people. To create our handcrafted panels, it takes an entire team. All of us have to be on the ball, doing our jobs, to make a single product.
Our team has combined decades of experience building electrical control panels for clients in Colorado and around the world. And they have a lot to say about UCEC's high level of craftsmanship and dedication to well-made panels offered at a great price. Below, we've compiled some memorable quotes from our Management Team.
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.
