Expanded marketing, sales partnerships and customer reach
Pasteurization Technology Group (PTG), creator of a sustainable wastewater disinfection process that creates renewable energy, closed out a successful second quarter of 2012. Salient developments included the successful attainment of a key customer milestone, expanded marketing and sales headcount, and sales partnership agreements to address growing interest in its proven process for enabling the recycling of wastewater.
Ventura Water, the city of Ventura’s Water Department, has completed an initial evaluation phase of a project to transition its wastewater treatment plant to PTG’s safe, non-toxic, sustainable technology to replace the current chlorine-based disinfection process in use at the Ventura Water Reclamation Facility. The announcement was made at a press conference held at the facility, where Ventura Water stated that PTG’s technology offered the potential to save the city millions of dollars in electricity and costs associated with consuming and storing hazardous chemicals. The PTG system is currently processing 15 million gal of wastewater per month, with the potential to scale up to several hundred million gallons of wastewater per month.
Marketing, Sales and Engineering Expansion
During the second quarter, PTG appointed two key individuals to fulfill growing customer demand. Glenn d’Eon was appointed as national sales manager, while David Bell joined as senior engineer. PTG held numerous informational sessions for consulting engineering firms engaged in projects at wastewater treatment plants and at businesses in the food and beverage industries.
PTG signed its first sales partnership agreement to expand its commercial footprint in the western United States, naming Cortech Eng. as its manufacturer sales representative in southern California and Nevada. Cortech offers PTG’s complete line of chemical-free and energy-efficient wastewater disinfection systems. PTG also signed its first international partnership for commercial representation in Asia.
“During the second quarter we built on the business momentum we achieved earlier in the year,” said Greg Ryan, CEO & co-founder of PTG. “We continue to grow on a variety of fronts and we are really energized by the launch of our first sales partnership. Based on our growing sales and partnership pipeline, we anticipate some additional large milestones as we head into the second half of 2012.”
