Universal Load Banks was founded in 2016 by Harish Patel.
A gifted engineer and entrepreneur, Harish founded his first company, Testek, along with a few partners, at the age of just 22 to design and manufacture aircraft test equipment. He sold Testek in 2016.
Starting with just 2 load bank models in 2016, ULB is now one of the largest load bank manufacturers in the United States.
