As the Labor Day holiday approaches, UCEC wishes our customers, employees and vendors a safe and restful holiday weekend.
If you're camping or traveling, stay safe! If you need "staycation" tips, see below for a list of quick ideas for Labor Day fun.
Be a Tourist in Your Own Town
Is there a museum, park or entertainment venue you've always wanted to try? Do it this weekend! In Denver, the Denver Art Museum has a free day on Sat., Sept. 3. Or visit a park you've never tried (along with a picnic, of course!).
Walk or Bike for Leisure
Summer will make its last bow soon (at least here in Colorado), so get outside while you still can. Enjoy the late-summer sun. Bonus points if you explore a new biking or hiking path. In Denver, try cycling part of the South Platte River Trail, which goes from Thornton through Denver and down to Englewood.
Close the Kitchen
Make one of Labor Day weekend's nights stress-free: order in takeout or pizza. Combine this with a movie from Redbox or Netflix, and you have the recipe for a relaxing night. Bonus points: make some Choco Peanut Butter Cup popcorn using the recipe from Boulder, CO-based Quinn Popcorn.
Give Your Hobby Some Attention
With work, chores around the house and family members going here and there, a favorite hobby may have been pushed to the side. Use this weekend to reconnect with that dusty guitar or paint palette. Or maybe you have a business idea that you'll explore "some day." Use your 72 hours of holiday weekend to enrich your mind and spirit.
Happy Labor Day, everyone!

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.
