Our Story

BetterBuilt began in the 1950s in New York manufacturing industrial washers. The company quickly developed a strong reputation for quality, durability, and trust within the scientific community over the years. Today, Northwestern Systems Corporation – a privately-owned company – continues to manufacture the high-quality and reliable BetterBuilt line of washers. 

Building on this original BetterBuilt legacy, Northwestern Systems Corp manufacturers has expanded the original product line to include Activ, Sure-Flo and Sure-Vac. The current BetterBuilt product line offers powerful yet easy-to-use controls, durable non-proprietary components, and numerous options to meet today’s expectations of fast cycles and low-utility consumption. 

Our modern manufacturing facility is located in Western Canada and we distribute our products globally.
