Genesis Systems Establishes Tampa, Florida, Corporate Headquarters
Genesis Systems has developed a new atmospheric water generation technology that is capable of inexpensively generating fresh water on an industrial scale while carbon capturing, Tampa Bay EDC officials said. The firm’s proprietary technology easily scales to produce tens of millions of gallons of fresh water per day while consuming far less energy per gallon than any current water purification system.
“Genesis vetted multiple cities across the country to answer which city would provide our unique mission to solve water scarcity with the best talent and the best lifestyle to support the talent we attract,” said Shannon Stuckenberg, CEO of Genesis Systems. “Our people are heroes solving hard problems for all humanity. They deserve to live in a city that supports them. In the final analysis, there wasn’t even a close second. Tampa won hands down.”
“Advanced manufacturing is growing in Tampa and Hillsborough County, and the companies in this sector, like Genesis Systems, are developing technology that is making a significant impact worldwide,” said Jim Weiss, chairman of the Tampa Bay Economic Development Council and Regional President of Fifth Third Bank. “Genesis Systems is bringing high-quality, high-paying jobs to our community as well as a new level of innovation and commitment to sustainability. This is a fantastic project all around.”
Over the past 10 years, manufacturing employment in the Tampa metro area has grown to the second largest in the state with more than 8,000 jobs added, local officials said. During the same time period, Tampa saw an increase of 13% or nearly 350 new manufacturing businesses established.
