Pat’s job at UCEC involves all aspects of warehouse work: shipping, receiving, driving forklifts, unloading and loading trucks and inventory control. “Every day is a little different,” Pat says. One day may bring cleaning up a panel and getting it ready to be shipped out via a pallet on the truck. Another day, it’s unloading new parts, matching them to job numbers and putting the parts on a job cart for the assembly side of the shop. Occasionally, Pat has to build a custom crate for domestic jobs. (Learn more about international shipments in this post.)

Everyday challenges include moving large enclosures across the shop to prepare them for shipping, Pat says. To move the enclosures, he depends on a deft hand with the forklift. “Every task you work on is a little different, but there are challenges each day that keep things interesting,” Pat notes.

Paula Zangari, Operations Support Manager, pointed to Pat’s strong contribution to the UCEC team. “Pat is always the first one to jump in and help. He stays late when I need him to and even has a smile on his face,” Paula says.

Pat is a Denver native and the father to three children, ages 21, 19 and 14.
