TOM MAXWELL NAIT C.E.T. IN MECH. ENG.,
Tom stepped into the driver’s seat at Sentrimax Centrifuges after the passing in late 2014 of Max Musik, the founder of Sentrimax. Tom has been active in the centrifuge business since 1987 when he left a position with Esso to set up the environmental contract services division for Polar Oilfield. After an active and successful year with Polar, Tom made a strategic decision and left to start up his own dewatering business and built one of the leading dewatering service providers in Northern Alberta. Tom and Max first met during that time and found they had mutual interests in the centrifuge industry. Max was previously employed as an Alfa Laval maintenance manager and sought to start up his own centrifuge repair company, and subsequently partnered with Tom to maximize their combined knowledge and expertise. With C.E.T. in Mechanical Engineering from NAIT and over 29 years hands on experience with municipal and industrial centrifuges, Tom brings a wealth of knowledge and proficiency to the company, from both a mechanical and operational standpoint.
