We Are United

"I Wanted to send a quick note to let you know how much we appreciate the partnership with UGS. During our morning construction meeting today, we were discussing an incident another contractor had your team did a great job stepping in the conversation. United reinforced Nucor’s expectations and talked about how we can help contractors when an incident occurs.."

‒ Joel Payne, Nucor

"I wanted to send thanks for the successful execution of the Pegasus project and specifically recognize the Account Manager for his leadership of the field activities. He has always been easy to work with and maintained a positive working relationship with the entire Dow team throughout the job. He sets safety as Number One priority for all UGS crews and leads by example, taking quick and appropriate actions on safety violations when necessary. He provides great follow-though on details, with good tracking information and supporting documentation on field changes."

‒ Katy Biallas, The Dow Chemical Company

"I just wanted to take a minute and thank each and every person involved with the Sub Loop 600 Valve and Gasket Replacement project safely completed on Sunday. I called Heather this morning first thing and asked if there were any issues and I am proud to tell you all that there was not one issue. I have worked a lot of places and with a lot of contractors but have rarely seen the level of team work you all showed yesterday. Please thank all your men and women for a job well done!"

‒ Shawn Middleton, Stork

"On behalf of WPP, I would like to thank you and UGS for taking on this job in short notice and performing with 0 safety incidents. Feedback from our plant team included the ease and flexibility that came with working with your personnel!"

‒ Ramon Ramos, Washington Penn Plastic Co.
