Things evolve quickly in the information age. Luckily, so do we. Less than one year after we first wrote about IIoT, and we’ve launched UCEC Smart, a brand-new division through which we can begin providing these advantages to our customers. Read more about the future of the Industrial Internet.
Building custom control panels requires a similar type of skill set; that is, a customized one. In our quest for constant improvement in our processes, technology and product we’ve also discovered the best way to train our new employees.
At UCEC, every year we strive to do better than the last. It’s this pursuit of innovation that’s kept us in business for more than half a century and what will sustain us into the next one. Today, we’re sharing a topic that might be one of the least exciting, but one of the most critical for your business’ success: process improvement.
Pharmaceutical facilities are another interesting environment where our panels operate. They’re regulated by the FDA, handle very potent and oftentimes dangerous chemicals, and are responsible for creating medicines to exact specifications that people rely on to treat their maladies. Knowing that, it’s no surprise that pharmaceutical facilities have high standards when it comes to both safety and cleanliness.

Sixty years ago, UCEC was founded on the simple idea that we could build quality control panels at a fair price. Since then, we’ve built beautiful panels for just about every market and industry, gaining broader and deeper expertise with each custom project. And while we’ve been making control panels for more than half a century, we haven’t been stagnant in our approach. We’ve added new technology and innovated new efficiencies benefiting our employees, the environment and our clients.
New Technology is a core value at our company, so we are practiced in looking to the future and planning for ways we can usher it in. We constantly renew this commitment, by seeking out best practices and the most advanced technologies on behalf of our customers and industry partners. In a recent blog post, I mentioned my belief that industrial panel building will evolve faster in the next five years than it ever has before. I also mentioned UCEC was positioned now, more than ever, to incorporate these advances. This has led us to launch a new division leveraging our legacy to advise on opportunities for implementing smart solutions within industrial, city and the IoT landscape.
