JCC Sees Cost Savings from Facility Investments and Improved Operational Efficiency with the Help of PRIDE Industries

The Judicial Council of California (JCC) manages the largest court system in the country—serving a population of more than 40 million people and about 12 percent of the total U.S. population.


Eight years ago, the Judicial Council of Northern California (JCC) awarded PRIDE Industries its Northern California operations and maintenance contract.  PRIDE Industries was able to deliver cost savings by improving operational efficiency and reducing electricity consumption, which saved the JCC more than $3M dollars in just five years. JCC needed their Central and Southern California properties improved in the same way.


This past year, the JCC was so impressed with the turnaround performed by PRIDE Industries that they asked the social enterprise to improve their Central and Southern California properties. This project is a four-year contract for a total of 34 buildings representing 2.7 million square feet.
