Centrisys manufactures dewatering and thickening centrifuges and provides global centrifuge service, repair and parts for all decanter centrifuge brands. CNP, a subsidiary of Centrisys, supplies nutrient recovery and advanced biosolids treatment systems for phosphorus recovery and thermal hydrolysis processes.

The company was founded in 1987 by CEO Michael Kopper and his business partner. Centrisys and Techcent, a Chinese company, formed a joint venture in 2007 which gave Centrisys access to new markets in Asia and new manufacturing options. In 2015, Techcent purchased 80% of Centrisys, with Kopper continuing as CEO of the company.

Centrisys says that the full acquisition represents a significant investment in the future and greater stability for customers and employees.

“This step is a tremendous opportunity to invest in our future. For our customers and suppliers, it creates certainty and predictability. For our employees, it offers greater stability and a prosperous future,” said Kopper. “We are now well positioned, both financially and operationally, to meet the increasing needs of our national and international customers. We are in full control, and our future is bright.”

The transaction closed on 31 December 2021.
