Welcome to the UCEC blog! We've been publishing posts on UCEC.com for several years. Our topics range from fabrication to wiring to international travel and customer service—and everything else you've ever wanted to know about control panels! One subject has been constant: our executive team's perspective on leading a business that is thriving and growing, while at the same time, serving our customers well.
Here are some recent posts from CEO and President Mark Inboden and Vice President of Business Operations Evan Coulter. We hope you enjoy their take on leadership.

Our blog regularly features our leaders and employees in photos and videos. We've even done a virtual "shop tour." We want our customers to feel comfortable visiting their projects.

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.
