From a Modest Beginning to a Global Reach

Shortly after the Clean Water Act of 1972 came about, which increased the United States’ focus on resolving water pollution problems, a small group of engineers gathered in California with a vision: to create a company that would focus on improving water quality.

From this humble beginning, WesTech has grown into a global leader in process solutions for water and wastewater treatment, liquids/solids separation, and minerals process equipment, while continuing to keep true to its core values.

A Partner in Making the World a Better Place

Not all countries have the resources to build and maintain the infrastructure necessary to treat water on a large scale. WesTech seeks opportunities to come alongside organizations who are at the front lines of helping underserved communities with water supply solutions, providing both time and money as needed. Programs range from volunteering with Engineers without Borders to funding the purchase and delivery of hundreds of portable water filtration units that supply clean drinking water to residents of Haiti, Guatemala, and the Republic of Congo.

Our package water and wastewater treatment equipment provides reliable, decentralized, and simple small-scale solutions for remote locations and for communities that do not have the capital to build on a large scale.

In a world with critical water needs, we offer engineering process expertise to achieve the best solutions for water treatment, with a commitment to worker safety.

At WesTech, we think of liquids/solids separation in new ways. Our decades of experience in equipment engineering and passion for problem solving means we have the complete range of equipment to provide our customers with not just a solution, but the best solution.

We meet the water treatment, liquids/solids separation, and biological treatment needs of municipal, industrial, and minerals clients worldwide, and in fact, we are one of the biggest municipal equipment companies in the USA. Founded in 1973, WesTech is employee-owned with over 500 employees around the world.

WesTech’s equipment spans a wide range of capabilities, from filtration, thickening, and minerals processing to turnkey and rental solutions, and even plant operations.

Our commitment to service means we form long-term working relationships to meet and exceed client expectations, focusing on these important water treatment solutions:

  • Municipal water — We offer a wide variety of equipment for groundwater and surface water treatment for potable use.

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.

The Utah Ethical Leadership Award went to WesTech in 2014.
