This unique combination of expertise makes us a single-source partner for all of our clients' needs.

Not only do we construct individual equipment, we also design and implement complete process systems with all of the necessary technology and manufacturing expertise drawn from within our group. Where most of our competitors are only able to offer a single element within a system, we can offer the complete system and so are able to realize projects faster and at a better price. This approach allows 3V Tech to bid successfully on projects put out to tender and also leads to repeat business from our many satisfied clients.

3V Tech's activities encompass Europe, North and South America as well as Asia.
Around 70% of our projects are carried out on behalf of international clients.

The quality of 3V Tech's work is its greatest asset.
We are constantly seeking ways in which to innovate and invest substantially in research and development.
We operate our own 2,000 m2 testing facility where pilot plant trials can be carried out. In this way we do not have to depend only on simulations but can test equipment and plant under real conditions ensuring the client's requirements are fulfilled in every way.

3V Tech is determined in its efforts to maintain internal control over all aspects of its projects as it is convinced this is the best way to assure a high quality end result.
We have a solid fund of expertise within our group and through the expansion, acquisitions and partnerships that have been realized in recent years, we are well positioned to offer our clients a high quality, turnkey solution to fit their needs. This puts us in a very strong position compared to our competitors.

3V Tech will keep investing in quality, service, acquisitions and strategic partnerships in order to assure its future growth.

In 2000, 3V Green Eagle was established and develops innovative technologies for the treatment of industrial wastewater and sludge. These technologies have earned the distinction of BAT (Best Available Technique) from the European Bureau IPCC.

In 2003, 3V Mabo was acquired, a company that specializes in the design and manufacturing of thin film evaporators and short path evaporators, which permit the distillation of extremely viscous fluids and thermolabile products. These systems have widespread applications, not only in the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors but also in industries where they are used for the remediation of polluted areas, regeneration of waste oils and treatment of substances affected by leached contaminants.

In 2008, 3V Tech acquired Top Service s.r.l., a company that had recently reached important results in the glass-lined sector. The name was changed to 3V Glasscoat as part of 3V Tech's strategic vision of becoming a world leader in the process equipment sector. It also represented a further step on the road towards complete vertical integration of the company's own activities. 3V Glasscoat gives 3V Tech its own in-house expertise in the glass-lined sector and has become one of the leading references in its market.

In 2009, 3V Tech entered into a strategic partnership with Italian company Soffiere Sestese srl, which has specialised in the design and manufacture of borosilicate 3.3 glass equipment and components since 1984. Its specific knowledge and experience in designing process systems are the perfect complement to 3V Glasscoat's own expertise in glass-lined reactors.
