We started with a simple passion for renewable energy.
Eco-Energy was founded 20 years ago by Larry Beckwith on the West Coast. A businessman with wide-ranging experience, Larry's desire to accelerate and enhance the evolution of renewable energy was the spark behind Eco-Energy. Larry quickly recognized the transportation challenges of bringing these fuels to market. He immediately set off to develop creative value-added solutions to solve the biofuel transportation issue.
In 1998, Larry moved the business to Tennessee where it continued to grow along side the biofuels market in the United States. His vision was to become a full service marketing company with a focus on adding value to the biofuels supply chain.
David Beckwith joined Eco-Energy in 1998 and focused on relationship building with Eco-Energy's customer base. His presence on the West Coast was essential given the California blend mandates in the 1990s. David brought years of sales and business management experience to Eco-Energy while sharing Larry's vision for bringing clean renewable fuels to the marketplace.
With the expertise in distribution and the ability to provide value added solutions, Eco-Energy continued to evolve as the independent partner assisting with marketing efforts of emerging bio-fuel plants. Today Larry's, focus on customer service, integrity, and innovative solutions brought his vision to life.
As Chairman of the Board, Larry participates in the strategic directives and overall goals of the company. His long-standing commitment to the bio-fuels industry and the company he founded lends much to the evolution and success of both.
