Last week was definitely a first for UCEC. We had the #traveling3 @UCECBuilt (Evan, Zach and Garrod) doing some field services work for a customer down in Mexico. While they were working 1,100 miles south of Arvada, I appeared last Thursday in a video shown at the Rexel Investors Day meeting in Paris, France.
I was honored to have been approached by Rexel to take part in the video, “The Voice of Our Customers - Rexel, a Value-Added Partner” that was produced as part of the Rexel 2020 Strategic Roadmap. When I first saw the video, I thought it was very exciting to see the logo of our small business in Arvada, Colorado appear on the screen. What amazed me was seeing the other groups in the video; Nike and General Dynamics from the USA; some large European-based concerns such as Eiffage and Arkema...all huge international companies! The coolest part of the video was reflecting on how well Rexel, a large international company, treats all of its customers, regardless of size.
We have some more international news coming up. We are doing a project in April with a company whose primary language is German, and with whom we have worked in the past. We have several more panels heading to China, too. We will keep you posted on our travels. Merci!
Check out the Rexel video, below. UCEC makes its debut about one minute in.

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.
