Seattle, Wash. (August 22, 2023) – Greater Seattle Partners (GSP) today announced that Earth Care Equipments Private Limited, India’s leading manufacturer of Organic Waste Converters, will establish its first North American location in Seattle. Recent Washinton State green initiatives including passage of House Bill 1799 requiring diversion of organic materials away from landfill disposal played a significant role.
“When we set out to identify our next strategic location, we looked for an economically and culturally vibrant region with a deep appreciation and commitment to the environment and sustainability,” said Mrunaal Patil, Director of Earth Care Equipments Private Limited. “We performed a thorough analysis of numerous cities and regions in the Americas, and our team is confident that Greater Seattle is the best choice for this new location. Thank you to Crescendo Worldwide and GSP for helping us with the site selection process.”
Earth Care’s plans in Greater Seattle include building and training local teams as green-tech warriors to serve on the forefront of operations and maintenance of its installations, investing and installing multiple pilot locations, and building partnerships with existing waste collection/management companies to divert the collected waste to its machines to avoid landfills and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).
“Our region is a national leader in fighting climate change with diverse public and private partnerships and unprecedented advancements in clean technology across key industry sectors,” said Josh Davis, vice president of global trade and investment of GSP. “Earth Care and its innovative environmental solutions will help our region improve waste management, cut landfill-disposed organic material, and build a more sustainable future.”
Earth Care’s expansion follows the recent announcement by the State Department and Prime Minister Narendra Modi that India will open a new consulate in Seattle, underscoring the city’s position as a hub for Indian immigrants and businesses. It also marks the third international expansion in the Greater Seattle region as a result of the SelectUSA Spinoff held in Snohomish, King and Pierce County in April of 2023. In partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce, GSP welcomed Earth Care alongside 20 additional companies based in Asia, Europe and North America for the 2-day tour of the region.
