Ecolab Inc. in partnership with SMC2, is establishing the Ecolab Digital Center (EDC) in Bengaluru. The EDC will serve as a global ‘Digital Innovation Center of Excellence,’ for the company and drive digital customer and field technology innovation and scale using a team of leading global talent. Currently, Ecolab produces water treatment, food and laundry solutions in two manufacturing plants in Kolkata and Pune, and operates its Global Systems Assurance Centre in Pune, which monitors 40,000 global customer sites to help them save water and energy.
Ecolab aims to meet growing global demand for predictive solutions using India’s deep talent pool for digital development. Partnering with SMC2, a leader in digital center development, Ecolab will increase the speed, scale and efficacy of its digital offerings.
“Establishing the Ecolab Digital Center, powered by SCM2 in Bengaluru, India will help us scale our digital capability and unlock insights that create more value for Ecolab customers and simplify work for our sales teams,” said Charles F. Koontz, EVP & Chief Digital Officer, Ecolab.
“Given that India is resource constrained in water, energy, and food our ongoing digital investments, including the Systems Assurance Centre and now the Ecolab Digital Center, will play a vital role in India. These investments will also help fulfil the ‘Make in India’ ambitions of our customers,” said Mukund Vasudevan, Ecolab Vice President and Market Head, India.
