Knight & Carver launches Eco Solutions

NATIONAL CITY, Calif. - Knight & Carver has created a new department strictly devoted to making the company's operations and its yacht-repair customers as environmentally "green" as possible, The News & Observer newspaper reported in a story on its Web site yesterday.

Eco Solutions is headed by Russ Grandinetti, a former megayacht captain who joined Knight & Carver in January. The department will provide a wide array of environmentally friendly on-board products and services to vessels serviced by the yacht repair company. The formation of Eco Solutions is thought to be among the first such efforts made by a major marine repair company, the newspaper reported.

"Many systems and products that have been traditionally used on yachts are simply not very friendly to the environment," Grandinetti told the newspaper. "Through increased awareness and advanced technology, an exciting array of green-themed products is now being marketed to help reverse that trend. The more non-polluting products we're able to produce as an industry, the better balance we'll be able to maintain within our eco-system."
