Direct Control

We have full control of a turnkey process – from design to manufacturing to service. We’re directly involved in – and accountable for – every stage of creating each newterra system.


Our detailed approach maximizes project efficiency and client confidence. From piloting through deployment and telemetry monitoring, our processes ensure successful outcomes.

Smarter Technology

Our solutions take advantage of innovative, proven technology – such as our patented MicroClear™ MBR membrane, sound abatement features, and iron removal system.


Engineering Horsepower

With over 40 mechanical, chemical and electrical engineers and application technologists on our global team, we have the in-house expertise to provide everything from design assistance to a full proposal with detailed costing. As a custom manufacturer, newterra utilizes sophisticated mechanical and electrical engineering tools. We can provide three-dimensional renderings of individual components or entire systems.


Production Expertise

newterra’s Production Group consists of many licensed and apprentice millwrights, pipefitters, carpenters and electricians. Like our Engineering Team, our Production Group is structured to optimize our custom manufacturing capability and achieve a high level of quality – with a focus on continuous improvement. Our UL Certified electrical panel shop and a MET Certified manufacturing facility means newterra systems are built to the highest standards.


A Solid Support Network

Our commitment to supporting customers is demonstrated by our four service facilities strategically located throughout North America. The newterra on-site service team undergoes comprehensive safety training, and are highly skilled in the maintenance, troubleshooting, controls and telemetry of our systems – and those of other makers. newterra offers:

Unsurpassed Parts & Rentals

At newterra, we support operators of our systems and other makes with an extensively-stocked Parts department that offers phone support. newterra also has a large fleet of rental equipment – from pilot systems to full treatment and remediation systems, as well as used equipment for purchase.

We put the same care into the production facilities that create newterra systems and components as we put into our solutions themselves. Our global production in driven out of three manufacturing bases in Brockville, Ontario, Macon, Georgia, and Langgöns, Germany.

Each of these locations has been optimized to enhance our capabilities and the equipment our clients rely on to protect the elements. This commitment to operating our own facitilies – as opposed to subcontracting – provides us with direct control over the quality, durability and delivery timing of every newterra solution.
