The start

Universal Storage Containers LLC (USC) was founded in 2006 by Peter Nemiroff and George Johnson. Main objective is to produce and supply high quality container products and deliver them to various customers worldwide.

It all started with the development of a foldable, portable storage container for the self-storage industry. This one revolutionized the self-storage market. This innovation dramatically reduced costs. This enabled the users to gain a competitive advantage within the markets in which they operated. The faster ROI helped them grow faster and more profitably.

The rest is history. USC continued to develop innovative container solutions for small and large companies around the world. This has allowed and will allow customers to grow faster.


Founder Peter Nemiroff: The Universal Storage Containers Ethos is that our customers are our friends. That guides us in all we do. We will continuously work to exceed your expectations for quality, service and value, because we appreciate the honor of being your friend and your trust in allowing us the opportunity to be your container supplier. We will always think outside the box. This allows us to help our customers continue to grow and gain a competitive advantage within their market by making the payback period as short as possible. Your successis our success.”


Universal Storage Containers operates worldwide. The headquarters is located in New Canaan, Connecticut, United States. In addition, there are branches in Boulder, Colorado; New York City and Sea Island, Georgia.

The offices outside the US are located in Deventer, Adelaide (Australia), Beijing, Kuwait City and Sao Paulo (Brazil). USC offers its customers one stop shopping to. That means you can go to one and the same location for all your container needs, anywhere in the world.
