At Wednesday evening’s Everett City Council meeting, Steve Winter of Tethys Enterprises unveiled before the public his company’s proposal to start up a bottled beverage company in North Everett. Winter described the proposed facility as “environmentally responsible” which would utilize fully compostable bio-degradable plastic bottles.
“This plant will position Everett as the global leader in environmentally responsible beverage manufacturing and distribution,” Winter said.
The proposed 1 million square foot facility could create up to 1,000 jobs with a projected payroll of over $61 million.
“We have a great opportunity to have a very clean industry,” commented Mayor Ray Stephanson on Wednesday.
