Meet Scott Luco: EFI Group’s new Senior Project Engineer

Scott Luco Senior Project Engineer and Managing Partner at EFI Group LLC With more than twenty-five years of experience in inorganic and electrolytic chemical production, food additives, pharmaceutical excipients and wastewater treatment processes, Scott Luco brings exceptional expertise to EFI Group.

However, his extensive process and operational leadership background is only one reason he’s such a good fit for our team.

Scott’s ability to see and assess the big picture, combined with his penchant for asking probing and challenging questions, are naturally aligned with EFI Group’s philosophy of approaching projects from an owner’s point of view and stimulating fresh thinking.

Underlying Scott’s talent for problem solving is his deep hatred of the one thing: Waste.

According to Scott, “There’s nothing I love more than making processes sing. In fact, what drives me is taking something that had a lot of waste, was too slow and off spec, and making it run very tight and very fast so that it builds the bottom line rather than drains it.”

Prior to joining EFI Group, Scott spent 10 years at W.R. Grace & Co., where he most recently held the position of Quality and Materials Operations Manager. Before that, Scott worked at several other respected companies including Erachem-Comilog, Inc., Westinghouse Electronic Systems and Merck & Co., Inc.

Scott is the recipient of numerous awards for both his work and published papers, and is trained in Design for Six Sigma Manufacturability, Taguchi Methods and is a Six Sigma Green Belt.

Scott lives in Catonsville, MD and has been married to his wife Ann for 29 years. Together, they have five grown children and currently spend much of their time working as marriage preparation counselors, giving engaged couples the tools they need to stay married. As Scott puts it, “We teach them how to fight without actually fighting.”

In short, Scott is a big believer in giving back to the community and also volunteers for organizations such as the Knights of Columbus and the Catonsville Historical Society.

In the little spare time he has left, Scott enjoys landscaping, working in his gardens and fishing. But there may be one activity that beats them all, and that’s following the Orioles. To get to know Scott better, connect with him on LinkedIn.

We hired EFI Group to help us figure out a project and scope it, and I felt confident they would keep a keen eye on it. They had to deliver quickly and they did it well. They are especially good at project management when you don’t have the resources to do it internally. Reliability is the word I would use to describe EFI Group.

EFI Group is timely. We’ve had a lot of situations when we’ve been in a time crunch and they’ve responded very quickly. They are detail oriented and efficient. They’re a good group of people who also have a lot of strength in pre-engineering — the thought process to get to preliminary design and making sure we’ve investigated all the potential asks of a project to ensure we didn’t miss anything. They have great attention to detail up front which is very important to any project because having that detail-oriented deep dive into the pre-engineering phase sets the stage for the success of the rest of the project, making the process smoother and making it much easier to keep the project on schedule and on budget.
— Mike Quigley, Engineering & Maintenance Manager, Food Industry
I’ve worked with EFI Group for a while, so I know they have a good, knowledgeable staff. We know we’re going to get the results from them we expect. From my interactions with all the different EFI team members I’ve worked with, I know they have knowledge across many industries. Equally, I never have to follow up with EFI Group and, in some cases, they keep me on track.
— Ryan Fredsall, General Manager, Pacer Minerals LLC
We view EFI Group as a team that can dimensionalize our capability to execute projects. We can articulate what it is we want to do and they can take that input and run with it without much intervention from us. They’re able to move a project along independently and only engage us when it’s time to bring us up to speed or get more input to drive a project to conclusion. That’s one of the reasons I view them as an excellent contractor.
— Environmental Engineering Industry Professional
EFI Group has good engineers and good customer service. We know when we get an EFI engineer on a project, we’re going to a get a good job from them and it’s been a productive relationship for both of us — I genuinely like the people.
— Corporate Director, Project Management in Food & Flavors Industry
