Modular Systems Designed Built by Zeton


How and where to construct a plant is an important consideration.

Modular fabrication for process technology solutions has significant advantages for taking your technology to market and lets you avoid many common challenges which can significantly impede your project’s success.

Zeton specializes in designing, fabricating and delivering lab scale systems, pilot plants, demonstration plants and production plants using modular fabrication. Our process modules are designed by expert engineers and fabricated and tested at state-of-the-art facilities and can be shipped virtually anywhere in the world for installation and start-up by our craft technicians.



Our unified approach serves you with factors which can be critical to your project – stringent quality control, compressed project schedules and reduced costs. Some key points of consideration for choosing Zeton’s modular system design-build services:

One-Stop-Solutions for Accountability & Reliability

Zeton completes both the detailed design and fabrication of our modular systems at the same location, providing a high degree of efficiency, control over plant cost, quality and delivery schedule. Our facilities in Burlington (Canada) and Enschede (The Netherlands) each have an engineering design office, purpose-built modular fabrication shop and expert team ready to provide innovative solutions for you.

Our accountability for all modular system project functions avoids creating problems or questions for our customers associated with quality, functionality and confused direction, which often occur when different companies are responsible for the design and fabrication of a plant.

As the single-source involved in the design-build of your modular plant, Zeton takes total responsibility for each step in the project, from basic engineering to detailed design, procurement, mechanical and electrical fabrication to control system configuration and factory testing.

Eliminating unnecessary internal paperwork and detailed design documentation between different organizations also saves you time and money.

At the build level, errors and rework are minimized with manufacturing supervision overseen by Zeton’s project engineers, ensuring you’re delivered a high-quality plant that meets or exceeds your project’s requirements.

Modular System Design-Build Services

Cost-Efficient Expertise and Flexibility

Since 1986 Zeton has completed modular layouts and other projects on a lump sum, fixed price basis. This helps to control our customer’s costs, and minimizes the risk and uncertainty associated with cost overruns, particularly in comparison to detailed design and outdoor site construction on a reimbursable time-and-material basis.

Zeton can design and fabricate modular plants to meet your specific standards and preferences, including preferred suppliers, providing a plant with components that are familiar to your operators and maintenance personnel. Applying our expertise to scale-appropriate solutions for pilot plants and demonstration plants reduces your project cost and schedule and promotes reliable operation and easier maintenance of your modular system.

Our industry-leading experience and capabilities range from single module turnkey laboratory scale systems to multi-modular small commercial plants. For large multi-modular plant projects, in North America, Zeton can supply skid system modules with dimensions up to 14 ft. wide x 12 ft. high x 65 ft. long. In Europe, Zeton can ship by road up to 5x4x17.5m and by water up to 6x6x17.5m or 5x7x17.5m.

We understand that your needs may change and we are often able to incorporate customer changes as they happen during a project. This allows your R&D efforts to continue while Zeton is designing and fabricating your plant. Zeton’s flexible, disciplined and integrated approach enables your project to continue moving forward while implementing the desired process changes you need.

Zeton’s Unique Project Methodology

Developed with customer feedback and our experience delivering over 800 projects in 45 countries through six continents across challenging industries, Zeton has curated a fast-track project execution methodology for lab scale systems, pilot plantsdemonstration plants and small modular production plants, where detailed design, procurement, fabrication and factory testing are completed seamlessly in parallel.

Our fully integrated design-build operations and streamlined project methodology allow you to work with a single company throughout the design and build phases of your modular system. Project components such as site permits, civil work and infrastructure modifications may be accomplished concurrently with the fabrication of the process modules in Zeton’s world-class facilities, compressing your project’s completion time and reducing your wait to take your process technology to market.
