Australian firm to open U.S. headquarters at Navy Yard
An Australian energy-efficiency company, Ecosave Inc., will open its U.S. headquarters in the Navy Yard and invest more than $10 million at the site, according to Select Greater Philadelphia and Mayor Nutter's office.
Ecosave, which primarily works with commercial and industrial customers, initially will occupy 6,000 square feet at 3 Crescent Drive and move into a 20,000 square feet office to be built at The Navy Yard by January 2015.
Ecosave acquired a Bristol, Pa., engineering firm, DVL Automation, last June. Officials said it would employ 125 people at its Philadelphia location, including some who now work in Bristol.
