Members News: We welcome Betterect as new Premium Member

Betterect was established in 1974 by our founder and CEO Martin Zechner (Austrian), who started manufacturing process equipment (Thickeners, belt filters, filter presses etc) for European clients. As the year progressed we branched out into different types of process equipment, vessels, tanks, structural fabrication and on-site erection services for various other project and equipment houses.
