The start

Universal Storage Containers LLC (USC) was founded by Peter Nemiroff and George Johnson in 2006 to provide container product solutions for various industries around the world.

We started by being a pioneer by inventing a foldable portable moving and storage container for the Self-Storage Industry that revolutionized the industry. This innovation dramatically lowered the costs allowing our customers to gain a competitive edge in their markets. The faster ROI helped them grow faster and more profitably.

The rest is history, USC continued to create innovative Container Solutions in many markets and industries for small and large companies all over the world, helping them grow in the most profitable ways.


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 of the box and continuously work to help you grow your business and gain a competitive advantage in your market while showing you how to maximize your ROI. Your successis our success.”
