UCEC Partner Spotlight: Logical Systems, LLC

By Mark Inboden

When we talk about our business partner Logical Systems, LLC, the first thing that comes to mind is the company culture in the Golden office. Branch Manager Tre Prater says LSI strives to maintain a fun, productive, small company environment. They hire good people. They have a mix of senior engineers that mentor younger, less experienced engineers to create a team that is efficient, responsive and cost competitive.

LSI works closely with Colorado School of Mines and has had great success hiring talented people. “We work really hard at not allowing younger engineers to get pigeonholed into repetitive tasks,” Tre says. “We want them to understand all the pieces of the project.”

UCEC works with LSI’s 50-person Golden office, but the company is actually spread across 220 employees and six offices: the headquarters in Memphis, TN; Rossville, GA; Jackson, TN; Guangzhou, China; and Toronto, Ontario. LSI is a global provider of process, mechanical and electrical engineering services specializing in process improvement, automation, systems integration and information systems. The Golden office opened in 2008.

LSI works with a variety of industrial control environments including Food and Beverage (both in process and packaging), Natural Gas processing and transportation and Mining. LSI is one of the country’s premier DeltaV DCS integrators, a recognized Rockwell Integrator and Siemens Solutions Partner.

One service element LSI provides to their clients is hardware and panel designs. Once the design is finished, UCEC steps in to fabricate and wire the panels.

UCEC’s pricing is good and they always deliver what they promise. They allow us to come in and test the panels. We power them up at their facilities and can thoroughly test the panels before they leave for the client.

Tre tells me he likes the “family-type” of environment at UCEC. His office’s company culture appeals to us, as well. From mountain biking at lunchtime to home brew competitions, LSI is a fantastic global firm with a Colorado presence.

It’s a pleasure to work with great partners like LSI. Check back to our blog from time to time for more partner and vendor stories. And please follow us on LinkedIn or Twitter.
