BTG turns 100 years old in 2021, marking a century of serving the pulp and paper industry with tools, products and solutions.

To commemorate the occasion, the company is launching a marketing campaign re-emphasizing its focus on innovation and its customers.

BTG started in Säffle, Sweden, where the chemical engineer Dr. Torsten Källe invented a “regulator” to automate the process of controlling temperature and load in several areas of the sulphite factory he was working in.

The idea was a success and in 1921, Källe created his company to launch the regulator.

Over the years, the original company merged and acquired additional competencies and capabilities: AB Inventing in 1985 with its portfolio of blades, Mütek in 2001 with its experience in process solutions, IPI in 2006 with the offering of metering rods and beds, and Capstone in 2016 with software for advanced controls and data visualization.
