WUE Sponsors CREA’s Guatemala Electrification Efforts

 

Western United Guatemala Electrification ShirtWestern United was a proud sponsor of the recent trip to Guatemala by volunteer linemen from Colorado and Oklahoma to electrify the village of Sillab. The program, organized by Colorado Rural Electric Association, in-stalled 6.5 miles of power lines, an estimated 40 poles, 4 trans-formers and brought power to the isolated village for the first time. Western United provided each of the linemen 5 long sleeve T-Shirts to wear during their time working in the country. Access to electricity is a life changing event for the village and Western United is honored to have participated.

WUE UPDATE

 

Intermountain Rural Electric Association, Sedalia CO, has awarded the ma-jority of their inventory management agreement to Western United. The three year agreement went into effect August 16th. Of the 22 Distribution Cooperatives in Colorado, Western United manages inventory agreements with 21.

Lincoln County Power District No.1 has been added as Western United’s 72nd Member. Lincoln County is located in Panaca Nevada.

WUE’s effort to upgrade our computer system from SAP to Prophet 21 was postponed due to vendor delays. The upgrade, previously scheduled for October 1st, has been pushed out to December 1st to allow the manu-facturer the opportunity to complete required functionality on our Web-site and Accounting processes.

Construction has begun on the expansion to our Brighton warehouse. The 25K square feet of enclosed warehouse space is being added in addition to 13 new parking spaces and an EV charging station. Completion is now expected in January 2020.

Three new employees and one contractor have recently been added to the WUE staff. Greg Kearns has joined WUE as Director of Warehouse Operations, replacing Brian Peterson who has moved to the Sales team. In the Brighton warehouse, Jess Miller, Marcus Ulibarri and contractor Jo-se Martinez have joined the team.

Western United ranked #70 in the annual listing of the top 200 electrical distributors in the country in the June issue of Electrical Wholesaling mag-azine. This is up from our ranking of 73 last year. Additionally, We were rated #3 in the country for sales per employee with $3.3M of sales for every employee based on calendar year 2018 sales. This is the same rank-ing WUE held in 2017.

Grand Prize raffle giveaways this year were a 55” Flat Screen TV and a set of tickets to the Broncos vs. Titans game at Empower Field at Mile High on October 13th. In addition to the Western United sponsored grand prizes, there were over 50 additional door prizes thanks to the support of manufacturers and authorized manufacturer agents from all throughout the WUE service territory.

Along with this year’s Open House, WUE also hosted a golf tournament and clay shoot. We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their support, as well as all of our custom-ers that attended and supported the events. In addition, we would like to thank Buffalo Run Golf Course for hosting the tournament, and Colorado Clays for hosting the clay shoot. Both facilities were great to work with and did a phenomenal job supporting our events.
