VetterTec is a company with a long standing tradition.

Through the years VetterTec expanded by adapting and further developing drying and dewatering technology for clients in other industries and grew internationally until today successfully serving clients around the world. All driven by our passion for drying.

At VetterTec we believe in our responsibility for future generations: health and nutrition for the growing number of people in our world and an environment that is protected and preserved.
