Industry Leadership

For decades, WesTech has been an industry leader in solving problems with effective water treatment solutions that improve process efficiency while delivering clean water for the benefit of humanity. Reintroducing the Microfloc and General Filter brands helped further establish WesTech as a leader in the design and manufacture of water treatment equipment for industrial, municipal, and minerals processing.

WesTech also participates in lead-the-way technology development, such as implementing innovative water reuse at industrial treatment facilities, collaborating with universities on alternative processes, and developing solutions that include nontraditional energy production. An alliance with global greentech pioneer Microvi, based in the San Francisco Bay area, provided WesTech with a next generation biological treatment solution -- Microvi MNE™.
