Our Basco Type 500 heat exchangers are manufactured in our ISO 9001 certified Buffalo, NY facility and our Suzhou, China facility. We employ Demand Flow Technology (DFT) manufacturing processes where finished goods are made “on-demand” from components and in-line support machining centers. We’ve invested heavily in DFT and embrace the superior quality, improved workflow, and cost controls inherent in DFT manufacturing.
