Bringing a broader supply chain-wide perspective, with the associated tools, to mining and metals companies will allow us to add value beyond the traditional areas of operations improvement.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
USC Consulting Group (USCCG) is augmenting its mining and metals practice with additional resources, and applying innovative tools, methodologies, and experience from a wide variety of other industries to better serve its growing global mining and metals clientele.
“A majority of USCCG’s existing mining and metals clients are always looking for new and innovative ways to optimize costs and output,” said Partner and practice Managing Director David Shouldice. “Bringing a broader supply chain-wide perspective, with the associated tools, to mining and metals companies will allow us to add value beyond the traditional areas of operations improvement.”
Metals and mining companies have invested a substantial amount of capital in production-related assets. USCCG helps ensure that maximum benefits are derived from these investments. Going forward, the firm wants to establish a new standard of operating excellence by, among other things, having the best asset management program in the industry and making it broadly available, because it believes that proper asset management is central to the success of every capital-intensive business.
“Clients and prospects are becoming more sophisticated when it comes to continuous improvement,” said USCCG President George Coffey. “Globalization has put huge pressures on companies’ capital requirements. Being able to help clients in the area of asset performance management - increasing both capability and efficient utilization - will enable us to drive significant value.”
“The expanded USCCG mining and metals team includes senior management, sales, and operations all the way through our delivery process. Together they have a combined 125 years’ experience. This dedicated and very experienced team will allow us to continuously refine our method of implementing process improvements to bring better value, sooner, to our clients,” added Shouldice.
USCCG plans to staff and manage the practice in a way that will allow the firm to both anticipate and react to needed innovations and changes in the metals and mining vertical, helping clients across the globe be as competitive as possible.
