About us

STEBATEC

Together with two business partners, Hanspeter Gafner founded STEBATEC in 1990. Anchored in electrical planning, it was his vision to develop into a supplier of complete solutions for measurement and control technology and automation, and to do so in high quality. To achieve this goal, STEBATEC became one of the leading driving forces in the European water and wastewater market. We offer our customers from all over Europe comprehensive services and innovative solutions in the fields of flow measurement, discharge control, sewer network control, alarm systems, and process control engineering and control systems for the automation of sewage treatment plants and sewer networks, water supply, steam, and hot water plants, district heating, hydroelectric power plants and for water regulation.
