About Betar Inc.

Precision Deep Hole Drilling and Honing Specialists

Betar, Inc. is a general machining company, located in a state of the art facility in Somerset, NJ.

Betar, Inc. specializes in deep hole drilling (also known as gundrilling), honing, turning, milling, surface grinding, blade sharpening, machine building and repair. We work with almost all metals and most other materials.

The jobs handled by Betar are uniquely created for each customer. Each piece is machined to extremely tight tolerances, and customers know Betar’s accuracy is dependably precise. 

Exacting Precision for Any Quantity

Many of Betar’s projects involve just one or a handful of objects that will be used in a customer’s manufacturing process, or in a unique piece of equipment.

Betar’s customers include companies in the aerospace, military, medical, agricultural, transportation, energy, machine tool, nuclear, public utilities, and pharmaceutical industries, among others. 

Back Office Strength at Betar

Betar President John Lohse says “we have outstanding office staff who make me and the company better at the same time. They make it possible for us to focus on broadening Betar’s vision, which in turn has led to a steady increase in revenues over many years.” 

“The key is efficiency,” explains Lohse. “We are 35% more effective with less people. That is amazing. We have kept our quality at peak levels. We stand behind our work. We receive at least 75% of our work as referrals from existing clients and people we meet at trade shows who refer Betar to other people and companies.”

Cultivating Tomorrow’s Workforce

Because of the 20-year labor gap in manufacturing, Betar is actively involved in lobbying the Federal and State governments about workforce concerns. Betar representatives helped develop the Advanced Manufacturing curriculum at community colleges in the region. We welcome opportunities to meet prospective new employees, apprentices or interns who excel in such programs.

Over 50 Years of Precision Manufacturing

Since September 5, 1968, Betar has stood for quality, dependability and reliability.

In 2012 the company moved to a state of the art facility with double the space, in Somerset, New Jersey. Since then, productivity has increased 35% and the company’s growth and profitability have continued on a strong path.
