When Centrisys President Michael Kopper and his team of engineers set out to design the THK Thickening System, they weren't looking to win any awards. They were just trying to solve a problem for wastewater treatment plants: the high cost of polymer used in thickening.

Nonetheless, the team's success in eliminating that problem is quickly gaining recognition.

The company, Centrisys, makes large centrifuges, which are used to separate heavier fluids from lighter ones, or to dry out, or “dewater,” solid materials. “Kenosha was in a market for improving the operation, so we showed them how to improve the operation,” said Michael Kopper, president and founder of Centrisys.
