Today Is Colorado Gives Day
By Mark Inboden
For the sixth year, Community First Foundation and FirstBank are partnering to present Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 8, 2015. Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving.
This year, UCEC has donated to the following organizations:
At UCEC, we build control panels to most efficiently serve the needs of our customers. That means ever control panel we build is different than the last. Despite this, there are some elements that make every control panel similar. In this article, we detail the most common components found in electrical control panels and the traditional best practices of control panel layout.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays from UCEC! As we close out a successful and fulfilling 2017, we wanted to let our employees, customers, partners and vendors know how much we appreciate them. You're the reason we exist!
Our employees tell us that their work colleagues feel like "family" which is the highest compliment they could give!
Are you new to UCEC? Welcome! Utility Control & Equipment Corporation provides custom control panels and control system integration for customers worldwide. Founded in 1958, we uniquely combine the best of the old and the new. We conduct business with an old-school, straightforward approach and we invest in the newest, state-of-the-art technology.
Here at UCEC, we can't claim to be super heroes, but we do have "super skills" that we use to create our customers' electrical control panel projects. If you are looking for an electrical control panel shop, make sure to ask about these must-have skills!
I’m pleased to introduce another Colorado company and valuable UCEC vendor, Royal Supply Company, Inc. Based out of Commerce City, Royal Supply was founded in 1963 by former United States Air Force Mechanic Virgil Flanders. This early version of the company was known as Denver’s “Rivet House” because they were a supplier of surplus aircraft parts.
As UCEC’s Project Coordinator, looking down the road to what’s coming our way is my business! Future thinking is in my DNA, so to speak. My job is to put all of the projects into perspective: do we have the right parts and the right scheduling to stay on track, on time and on budget?
The panel industry is changing, although it can be hard for the outside observer to see this change. One of the best things we do to be ready for the future here at UCEC is to stay up-to-date on the newest developments in electrical engineering, controls and industrial automation.
We all know what good customer service feels like, sounds like and acts like. Good customer service can’t be faked. It’s that great feeling when you walk away from a transaction with a business and think: “That company values me and my business. They took good care of me and helped me with what I needed.”
Staffing our shop is an important job here at UCEC. We want to have fully-trained expert craftsmen and craftswomen ready to go for our upcoming projects. At the same time, we need to make sure that today’s electrical control panel projects are fully staffed. We can’t under-hire or over-hire. We don’t hire for peaks and valleys—we want to employ people who want a career, not a job.
