Our Story

Located in the heart of the wine industry in Northern California, CentriTEK is strategically located industrial centrifuge service company which specializes in food & beverage, water and wastewater, petroleum oil refining, rendering and protein industries.

Recognizing a deficit in the quality of service and support offered by many centrifuge OEM’s, CentriTEK was kick-started in 1999. In 2012, CentriTEK launched a full-fledge repair shop on a mission to build a quality centrifuge repair business while delivering consistent high-level personalized customer service.

Today, as CentriTEK grows and expands its presence across the US and serves more applications and industries than ever, the No. 1 priority remains unchanged: treat every customer like a friend, never like a number.

CentriTEK - Puts People First
17 June, 2020



PUTS PEOPLE FIRST


Chris Gatewood may be the President and Chief Executive Officer of CentriTEK Industrial Centrifuge Specialists – but he prefers not to tie himself down to a title.  “I’m the president of this corporation,” he says. “I’m also the sales guy. I’ll sweep the floor, empty the trash, work on the machines, offload the truck… I know what needs to be done.” Chris learned the art of wearing many hats while working as a tugboat captain in the San Francisco Bay area. In 1993, the California Maritime Academy graduate became “infected by the centrifuge bug” and learned every aspect of the repair and operation of decanters at an independent centrifuge repair business. In 1999, he started up his own decanter centrifuge service company, CentriTEK.  One year later, Chris put his own company on hold and joined Centrisys Corporation, which was an up-and-coming US-based manufacturer. With his efforts, Centrisys flourished into becoming the top decanter centrifuge manufacturer and supplier of decanter centrifuges into the municipal industry across the globe. 


HIGH-QUALITY SERVICE


After a successful run helping Centrisys, CentriTEK re-emerged in 2012, and today, the corporation is a leader – offering high quality service and repairs of horizontal decanter centrifuges, as well as an impressive rental fleet of centrifuge system for clients needing additional capacity and supplement their process if their existing equipment is down. CentriTEK is servicing customers in all industries across North America, the Caribbean and Pacific Islands. CentriTEK can be found servicing all brands of horizontal decanter centrifuges installed in the municipal market. From the smallest of plants running 0.25 MGD to plants running up to 75 MGD and more, CentriTEK has no limitations. With clients’ service and support needs are at the heart of the operation, CentriTEK prides itself on the highest quality service, working closely with customers to ensure their machines operate at the maximum levels of performance and efficiency. We are always available to answer questions and provide well educated industry advice and recommendations. Further, we spend a lot of time onsite, training technicians how to run specific machines. This helps ensure peak performance while also decreasing unwanted wear and tear and costly breakdowns. “Whether it’s a municipality or private industry, it ultimately saves the customer a tremendous amount of TIME AND MONEY,” Chris says.


LASTING RELATIONSHIPS


Just as important to Chris as the expertise his company brings to the table is the lasting relationships he builds with his clients… and its truly what sets CentriTEK apart. “We’ll solve the problem with the centrifuge – customers can always depend on that. (But) I wanted to do it differently. We’re real people that you’re dealing with. We don’t address anybody by a number,” Chris says. “We’re friends with our customers. You know us by our first names, we know your families and kids. We truly care.”


And Chris knows a bit about maintaining long-term relationships:  he and his Partner John Sederquist have known each other their entire lives.  “Our parents went to high school together and we were thrown in the crib together as babies. We’re as close as brothers,” says Chris, adding John’s three decades as a Navy SEAL gives him a unique set of skills that complements the centrifuge repair business well.  “He spent 30 years organizing teams and carrying out successful missions. He’s as methodical and level-headed as they come,” Chris says, adding “He puts his head down and goes to work, and I am glad we are on the same team.” Next for CentriTEK is a continued expansion. With John based in Florida, it’s just a matter of timing before an East Coast facility is born. Until then, Chris – with a passion for every aspect of the business – will put on whatever hat he needs to from day to day in order to best serve the customers he values so much.


“What’s my title?” he says. “I guarantee it will change tomorrow.”
