Beta Fluid Systems becomes Liquip USA


Beta Fluid Systems was formed in 1972 producing Military refueling equipment including filter vessels, refueling hydrant trucks and refueling carts as the main product lines. Competing successfully in this market through the 1970’s, Beta then moved into the commercial market supplying Narrow Body refueling carts and Commercial hydrant dispensers.

In 2006 Liquip International acquired Beta because it was a wonderful opportunity for expansion into the military sector. The acquisition positions Liquip in a perfect location to grow commercial business in the North American market and to allow us manufacturing options for servicing South America and Africa as a group. Beta’s quality and ability to deliver on it’s commitments coupled with Liquip’s acknowledged global standard of refueling equipment manufacturing has allowed the business to expand 3 fold within the first 18 months. And we see this as just the beginning.

Our customers continue to enjoy the high quality the Beta brand has provided for 35 years. A strict adherence to a quality system is something our customers have come to expect as the norm from Beta. As a major military contractor this quality program shines through on every Beta product and it’s the pride our staff have which produces this. Many hundreds of years worth of knowledge strengthen and support the company through the employees that have stayed for this new stage of the Beta – Liquip journey. In fact, staff numbers have grown rapidly to cope with our expansion, today employment at Liquip International is based on expertise and pride of workmanship. Employees now join us from many parts of the USA as Liquip searches far and wide for highly skilled specialists who are a good attitudinal fit in each area of our business.

Liquip International have invested heavily in North Carolina and will continue to improve our state of the art facility. We will leverage our excellence in design to provide new efficiencies to the commercial aviation sector whilst continuing to grow our military business. In particular Research and Development will play an important part in our quest to lead the global Aviation Refueling market with new vehicle types built to suit specific products and to meet customer requirements.

Liquip is well known for innovation and leading the market from the front, our future is bright as we enter the North American market.

Our vision is to:

“Build market winning products which demonstrate our commitment to excellence in customer service, employee satisfaction, quality and team approach.”  

This is the cornerstone of all of Liquip’s endeavors and our commitment to this is second to none.
