UCEC Identifies What Makes Them a Top Notch Control Panel Builder


UCEC has existed for more than sixty years by building the best control panels, period. To keep their focus on quality custom panels, they have never defined themselves as a “one-stop shop." To be all things to all people with something as complicated as a control panel should send up a red flag. When panels shops try to do everything (a “one-stop shop”), that’s when things get diluted and messy.

There is so much talent and work that goes into a UCEC panel. UCEC knows their industry thoroughly, and they wish to remain highly relevant in the field. No one gets there by being all things to all people. UCEC shares two examples of this philosophy in action.


UCEC's talented craftsmen contribute their years of knowledge of panel building to each project. Conversely, most engineering firms who try to build panels quickly learn there is more to them than meets the eye. As UCEC's President and CEO, Mark Inboden said, “Two specialized companies collaborating to solve a customer’s problem often leads to a better result for the end user.”

UCEC finds that the best results happen for their clients when they partner with other experts and this case study demonstrates exactly that.
