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.
Last year, we asked CEO and President Mark Inboden to answer eight questions on the blog. Learn what makes him tick with this blog rewind today.
Last Saturday morning as I waited in the lobby of my hotel in California, something very small moving on the floor caught my eye. It was an ant, and the ant seemed to be “trapped” on a 12-inch-square light-colored tile.
Our blog regularly features our leaders and employees in photos and videos. We've even done a virtual "shop tour." We want our customers to feel comfortable visiting their projects.
U.S. manufacturing is on an upswing, as the Labor Department reported that manufacturers nationwide added workers last month at the fastest pace in more than four years.
What's the magic behind the shop? We have plenty of ideas...starting with these three, below.
In a recent story by CompanyWeek, I was quoted as saying, “Keeping on the front end of innovation has remained a constant (for UCEC)....technology is a huge driver of the panels we build.”
UCEC has been featured on CompanyWeek, an online publication dedicated to news about the Rocky Mountain manufacturing economy. CompanyWeek has a unique focus on the "new" manufacturing sector with its progressive emphasis on new tech. This focus aligns well with UCEC's dedication to new technology.
