Bte Bedampfungstechnik GmbH and Born Coating GmbH - Bte for short - operate together as a medium-sized, purely owner-managed business with its registered office in Elsoff/Westerwald (approx. 1 hour north of Frankfurt am Main).
As a developer and manufacturer of sophisticated technical components, and as one of the market-leading and most innovative vacuum coating companies, Bte has been valued since 1992 by well-known customers from a wide range of industries at home and abroad. Short paths, fast responses: a lean organization, flat hierarchies, efficient use of resources and service-oriented business processes make us so flexible.
With currently possessing 27 vacuum coating facilities as well as patented and certified processes, with the introduction of new large series we have grown to meet the rapidly increasing needs. Our recipe for success includes long-serving specialized staff who bring their wealth of experience to new products and manufacturing processes.
Glass, metal and plastic – there is probably hardly any surface that we have not yet coated. And without being aware of it, you will have almost certainly come across us already – for example, in the form of operation lamps, head-up displays, headlights, optical sensors or UV reflectors. So if you're looking for optical components with coatings, Bte is the place to go. Well-known providers from a wide variety of industries associate mirror plating and anti-reflection coatings, optical precision filters, beam splitters and much more with Bte.
Any components which can be manufactured with vacuum coating can be fully designed to your requirements - from large batch production through project business for astronomy and science to individual small orders.
