Our CEO and President Mark Inboden has some great business wisdom he shares almost every week on the blog. Recently, he taught us about the difference between compound and recurve bows (and why that matters at the office). In another post, he showed us how living above the "O" line helps in both work and life.
Did you know UCEC debuted a video earlier in the year? This one was a ton of fun to write and film.
You may also know that we're fans of new technology. Last summer, we debuted a high-tech CNC machine that traveled from Europe to Colorado, USA. Learn more about the lessons we've learned with our Steinhauer MC-80 here.
Thanks for stopping by and keeping in touch! If we can help you with your next industrial automation panel project, please let us know. It would be our pleasure to meet you.
More Stories from UCEC
Building quality control panels is a team effort. At UCEC, each of our control cabinets is created by the collaborative efforts of seven dedicated teams. These skilled craftsmen work closely with the client and each other to create a client roadmap that will ultimately deliver a custom control panel at a fair price.
Our state-of-the-art equipment brings the highest level of accuracy and speed available. The result? We'll deliver a panel faster with equal or better quality than other custom control panel manufacturers. At UCEC, efficiency goes up year over year, but not our prices. Here are some of the ways we fulfill our brand promise of New Technology.
At UCEC, we build control panels to most efficiently serve the needs of our customers. That means ever control panel we build is different than the last. Despite this, there are some elements that make every control panel similar. In this article, we detail the most common components found in electrical control panels and the traditional best practices of control panel layout.
In October, UCEC will celebrate its 60th anniversary.
From the beginning, the founder of UCEC, Howard Lacy, felt that he could make a better control panel at a better value than the control panels he was purchasing from others. My father-in-law, Chris Kitsos, took this concept beyond the municipal markets, and provided even better control panels and customer service to the private industry. It is amazing to think about how far UCEC and industrial control panels have come since 1958. We can all be proud of the role UCEC has played as a leader in our industry.
As the calendar winds down and turns over a fresh page, we're taking a look back at 2017's accomplishments. There were many, including: UCEC's new tech projects, our new published case studies, going "green" with wire duct and our launch of new project management software. We promoted team members, traveled to Mexico and some of us ended up on video and online telling the UCEC story (looking at you, Mark!). All in all, it was a year filled with hard work, great projects and continued success for this company that will celebrate 60 years in business in 2018. Thanks for a great 2017, and here's a toast to our leadership who motivate us each and every day at work.
Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoy this special time of year with your loved ones and friends. I am very excited about what’s in store for 2018, and for the opportunity to work with all of you to make it happen. Thank you to our customers, vendors and employees!
Merry Christmas and happy holidays from UCEC! As we close out a successful and fulfilling 2017, we wanted to let our employees, customers, partners and vendors know how much we appreciate them. You're the reason we exist!
Whew! It's been quite the ride in 2017 with a very busy shop, working with talented co-workers and of course, the reason for what we do: creating our valued customers' electrical control panels. Here's a look back and a few stories that made our year.
Our customers often bring us cutting-edge challenges—and we love it! Recently, one of our vendor partners CPI came to us with a project we couldn’t resist. CPI’s customer wanted to revamp the HMI (Human-Machine Interface) screens that are installed in each of their electrical control panels at a large beverage canning facility. (Side note: UCEC is fortunate to work with many partners. Meet more of our vendor partners here, here and here.)
What's ahead in the New Year for UCEC? We're glad you asked!
