George Dussich, President and CEO
Our company’s founder, George, grew up and studied in the US, then through various studies furthered his education in Mechanical Engineering in Europe. For approximately 10 years he headed up one of the quality control departments at ABB, a Swedish Nuclear and Conventional Power and Automations Technology giant. After moving his family back to Florida in 1978, together with his father, he formed a patent firm DDCI including developing products for marketing giant Stanley Joselof. Then he founded a nationally renowned marine acrylic manufacturing firm and led it successfully for 17 years. Along with his multi-lingual skills, and extensive knowledge of international markets, George’s strengths are mechanical design/engineering and problem solving. He has been responsible for innovating many concepts of efficient storm filtration systems, both in the United States and Europe. George has designed and patented many products for introduction in the US. He introduced the concept of using plastics in ESI’s stormwater treatment systems, making them easier to machine and build, and helping them better withstand harsh conditions. The end result was a major cost saving for ESI’s customers, and a more durable and better quality alternative to what is currently being offered by competitors.
