The MetteQ Group focuses on manufacturing and supplying high-tech consumable products to the chemical, metallurgical, construction and agricultural industries.
We are a customer-focused group of businesses owned by engineers with a passion for technology. We design and build our own equipment and, being owner-managed, can be price competitive in a high-tech environment. We have a vision of developing a large, multi-product facility using in-house, core technical competencies to ensure we remain commercially relevant.
Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent.
