Founded in 1992 during the EPA environmental phase out of many cleaning solvents, Best Technology has extensive knowledge of aqueous cleaning alternatives to solvents as well as today’s engineered solvents which provide safe environmental impact and employee exposure/work environments.
Since 1992, Best Technology has been offering products ranging from precision and industrial parts cleaning equipment, passivation systems, part finishing equipment, precision cleaning chemistries, and specialty process equipment new and used in midwest: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, South Dakota and North Dakota as well as throughout the United States and worldwide.
Unique Value to Customers
Differing from part cleaning and finishing equipment manufacturers which only offer 1-2 types of equipment they make, Best Technology’s extensive product portfolio of our own and many other manufacturers combine with 20+ years of industry experience and knowledge allow for the correct pairing of customer application to equipment and chemistry.
This vast product offering coupled with turnkey services of process troubleshooting & development, procedure development and validations allows us to accomplish our goal: demonstrate, educate and solve our customers part cleaning, chemical and finishing application using a complete, turnkey approach.
The bottom line for our customers, Best Technology’ s broad product offering allows for the proper equipment selection rather than feeling pushed to one specific type of system and our services allow for maintaining focus on their business rather than tend to process troubleshooting, stability and validation.
There is no application too big or small so please contact us for a solution to your manufacturing equipment application!
