UCEC Celebrates 60 Years. A letter from our president as we look to the future.

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.

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.

 A Game-Changing Project

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.)

The Best Result: It Starts with You

Ever wonder why some people are always happy? Do you wonder why some athletes always seem to win? As someone who is always looking to improve, I believe that one of the biggest factors is the ability to Think Well.

Is Your Panel Shop Future Ready?

Editor's Note: This fall, we published a series of posts about how UCEC is preparing for the future. We heard from our Executive and Management teams, and after reading their vision for UCEC's next chapter, we're pretty jazzed for what's ahead. Below, please find the entire series.

Use It Up!

Use It Up!

Growing up, my family was a model “use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without” type of clan. Throwing things away was not an option. It’s a character trait I’ve passed on to my kids, and also one I’m proud to say that UCEC observes whenever possible.
