Today, I thought I would take the time to provide a glimpse into some of the planned blog posts you will see in the upcoming months.
First, if you haven’t watched our “Day in the Life” video, you can view it here. On the blog, we will publish a multi-part, multi-author series that will further explain the processes involved in putting together an industrial control panel. We will explain our quoting and purchasing philosophy. You will go in-depth to see how we utilize our MC-80 3-axis CNC machine in the Layout, Metal Fabrication and Assembly areas. We will explore the many facets of wiring a panel, including a primer on UL508A. Quality Assurance and care for your panel in shipment will round-out this series.
Second, we thought it would be helpful to have several posts on the industries we serve. We plan to take you on a “trip” to an oil and gas facility, an aluminum can plant and a packaging facility. We thought it would be of interest to see where our panels end up, and some of the process they control.
Third, there will be several Technology features. We will further explore the many uses of our MC-80, and look at our latest piece of technology, once it arrives.
Fourth, we have several Partner profiles planned with some of the many engineering firms we do business with. If this is of interest to your company, please drop us a line and we can talk about featuring your company on our blog.
Last, but not least, we will continue to profile our talented employees, giving you some insights into their backgrounds and interests. We have a great group of men and women at UCEC.
Since I spent over four hours commuting in our most recent snow storm, I had plenty of time to think about Spring being only 55 days, 10 hours and 7 minutes away! Here is a photo from a trip I took to Ireland in 2013 that will give you an idea of what excites me about Spring.
Enjoy your weekend.
Mark is President and CEO of UCEC.
