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.

I recently attended a seminar on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Sponsored by Rexel and Rockwell Automation*, the seminar was attended by folks who work in and design systems for “the connected enterprise.” I ran into several engineering firms we work with, in addition to UCEC customers and vendors. IIoT is a real game changer in our industry with the advantages of reduced costs, faster installation and real-time data.

A lot of people think the panel industry is a quiet, staid industry where very little innovation happens. That may have been true decades ago, but electrical control panel fabrication has enjoyed the benefits of new technology. And UCEC is definitely taking advantage of these new technology innovations to bring our customers better panels with greater efficiencies. .
What's going on at our Arvada, CO electrical control panel shop?

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.
It took Denise Nation a few twists and turns to end up on the Wiring team at UCEC in 2016. Her first career track was in healthcare, but she had a feeling that wasn’t exactly what she was supposed to do. A chance to attend school for avionics electronics was intriguing; Denise says she always liked figuring out how things worked.
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.
