Orenco Does Business Internationally

Orenco Systems, Inc. was incorporated in 1981, founded by engineers focused on providing intelligent, high-quality, sustainable solutions for wastewater management. The company has grown from its original base in the northwestern United States to become a global company doing business around the world. Our technologies are appropriate for both developed and developing countries, with an emphasis on natural processes, low energy requirements, and simple operation and maintenance needs.

Today, Orenco products are in use in more than 70 countries on six continents. From sand filters serving communities in Guatemala, to an effluent sewer replacing old septic systems in Australia, to a portable treatment system at the foot of a glacier in northern Canada, Orenco has provided the right solutions to a wide variety of situations in all types of climates and terrain.
