Best Water Tech­nol­ogy

About us

With­out water there is no life, no growth and no progress. Which is why BWT has ded­i­cated itself to water – our most impor­tant vital con­sum­able and our lifeblood – with a vision of becom­ing the global leader in water tech­nol­ogy and devel­op­ing prod­ucts and processes that are both eco-friendly and cost-effec­tive.

Best Water technology


"For You and Planet Blue."

Our name defines our vision: we understand that our responsibility is to develop the best quality products and services for water treatment. We also make water our mission, ensuring hygiene safety and health in our daily contact with water.

Every day we research innovative solutions and strive to continue developing our company and our products. Our objective is to offer our customers water treatment facilities, technology and support services, while safeguarding the resources of our blue planet.

BWT – For You and Planet Blue.

Our strapline “For You and Planet Blue.” summarises our mission in a nutshell, which is to implement sustainable and responsible corporate strategies to satisfy both the needs of the individual and to preserve the Earth as a unique habitat.

„For You“

BWT’s aims and products are designed to serve humans and their needs; “You” are our customers, our business partners and our employees.

„For Planet Blue“

This describes the central role the element water plays in our “blue planet” and also the remit of BWT: we use our expertise to make the limited water resources of our planet accessible and usable – and always in harmony with nature.


In practical terms, we implement our vision by submitting our products and services to tests and certification processes by independent institutions to achieve the best possible standards of product quality and customer satisfaction. These include ISO 9001 accreditation and compliance with HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points). We have introduced environmental and energy management in compliance with ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 to embed the concept of sustainability in all our activities. We also send a clear signal in the area of occupational health and safety: with certification according to OHSAS 18001 – for the safety and health of our employees.

All BWT companies orient themselves to these standards, and some of our companies have already gained numerous ISO certifications, which reassures our customers and business partners that we act and work to the highest standards at all times.

Water Tech­nolo­gies

Only those who think and act innovatively will gain a technological advantage, and BWT’s innovation centres are committed to continuous research into all aspects of water treatment: filtration methods, filter media, ion exchange systems for demineralisation, softening, decarbonisation, membrane technologies (micro-, ultra- and nanofiltration, reverse osmosis), pure steam generators, pure water distilleries, UV systems, ozone generators, ion exchange membranes, electrolysis, electrodialysis, electrodeionisation, chlorine dioxide generators and dosage pumps.

We provide optimum quality water – precisely where it is needed.

Our Vision

BWT – the inter­na­tion­ally lead­ing water tech­nol­ogy group

BWT’s vi­sion has evolved out of all these chal­lenges and de­mands. We want to be­come the world’s mar­ket-lead­ing water tech­nol­ogy group, and to achieve this we must grow all the areas of our busi­ness.

Growth in every sec­tor

One of the dri­vers of growth is in­no­va­tion. Only those who ac­tively and con­tin­u­ously de­velop their prod­ucts and ser­vices, and think out of the box, can grow big­ger and bet­ter. We also un­der­stand the im­por­tance of ge­og­ra­phy; there are cur­rently over 80 BWT sub­sidiaries and af­fil­i­ates world­wide and R & D de­part­ments in France, Ger­many, Switzer­land, Aus­tria and Rus­sia. We’re work­ing on gain­ing more!

To de­velop fur­ther, how­ever, we must not only think of the fu­ture, but also of the here and now. This is why we strive to im­prove and op­ti­mise ex­ist­ing processes and pro­ce­dures, and de­velop ex­ist­ing tech­nolo­gies and prod­ucts in a spirit of con­stant im­prove­ment.

As we con­tinue to grow, we con­sider it our duty to as­sume eco­log­i­cal, eco­nomic and so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity for all our ac­tiv­i­ties.

BWT – a Cor­po­rate Suc­cess Story

An entre­pre­neur­ial spirit and a hunger for inno­va­tion and suc­cess are fac­tors that have shaped and char­ac­terised BWT as a com­pany, from its hum­ble begin­nings in Pforzheim to today’s large-scale enter­prise.

The roots of the BWT group can be traced back to 1823, when Johann Adam Benckiser founded the small chemical factory in Germany bearing his name. In 1990 Andreas Weißenbacher laid the foundations for BWT as we know it today as part of a management buy-out, and from “Benckiser Water Technology” he created the “BWT”, the bedrock underpinning our long-term success story. BWT Aktiengesellschaft’s head office was initially based in Hallein, and two years later the still young company relocated to Mondsee.

The BWT Group celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2015. A quarter of a century of dynamic development since the founding of BWT Aktiengesellschaft confirms that its vision of becoming the internationally leading water technology group has been consistently pursued and is well on the way to being achieved.
