EarthRisk Technologies, a pioneer in the research, analysis and visualization of extreme weather risk, established its new headquarters in the heart of downtown San Diego, just blocks from the historic Gaslamp Quarter.
"We are very pleased to move into our new space that was purpose-built for our needs," says EarthRisk Chief Executive Officer John Plavan . "For our team, it's business as usual as we transitioned to the new office with no disruption in our workflow or any lapse in meeting the needs of our clients. The fast yet sustainable growth of our business and the interest in our services meant we simply outgrew our previous office. We can now continue this growth trajectory with some added room to expand even further in the coming years."
Targeting the energy industry, agriculture and other key sectors where information on extreme weather risk is critical, EarthRisk's core offering TempRisk, forecasts both hot and cold weather patterns up to 40 days before they occur, a lead time more than twice as long as today's most widely used weather simulation models, company officials said. TempRisk provides information necessary to extend forecast confidence beyond one week, the point where weather simulations face deteriorating skill.
