USCCG has always endeavored to operate with the highest levels of professionalism and integrity in the face of the many challenges we have encountered.

It was on this day 50 years ago that two courageous entrepreneurs, Pat Price and Tom Rice, opened the doors to USC Consulting Group (USCCG) leading to an inspired change to the operations management consulting world. Pat and Tom established USCCG to invoke a positive impact focused on helping clients improve productivity efficiency and reduce operating costs. This foundation has helped the company overcome adversity and deliver predictable, sustainable improvements for its clients.

“Many things have changed over the decades as we have adapted to many changing business conditions, but our commitment has always been to our core values and founding principles,” says George Coffey, President and CEO of USCCG. “Our company has lived through seven recessions, most notably the Great Recession and financial crisis of ‘08-09, as well as weathered numerous geopolitical events, misery indexes, market corrections, fiscal cliffs and government shutdowns. We have always endeavored to operate with the highest levels of professionalism and integrity in the face of the many challenges we have encountered.”

In order to reach this golden achievement, USC Consulting Group had to evolve throughout the years. From the company’s humble beginnings that centered on short-interval scheduling (SIS), USCCG expanded the service offerings to complement their clients’ ever-changing needs. USCCG now helps empower performance in the following ways:

  •     Operating cost reductions
  •     Process improvement
  •     Supply chain optimization
  •     Maintenance and OEE improvements
  •     Management operating system enhancements
  •     Asset performance management
  •     Project management
  •     Shutdowns, turnarounds and outages
  •     Commissioning and consolidations
  •     Strategic sourcing
  •     Business intelligence

As USCCG celebrates the first 50 years, moving forward the company will continue to adjust to the transforming business landscape and acclimate to emerging methodologies and technology introduced to ensure success for years to come.

George Coffey states, “We have every confidence that we have the organization, talent and determination to ensure a bright future and opportunity for all.”
