May 2019 – Advanced Separation Technologies (AST) announced that it has finalized the sale of all the assets and rights relating to Advanced Separation Technologies (CentraSep®) and AST Leasing collectively referred to as AST/CentraSep to Dexter, MI based Trucent, Inc.
AST/CentraSep becomes part of the Trucent family of companies and will be known as Trucent CentraSep Technologies.
Trucent and AST/CentraSep are no strangers to each other, with Trucent selling CentraSep centrifuges as part of its product offerings for years. Tom Czartoski, CEO and owner of Trucent, says, “The CentraSep acquisition merges two great and complementary separation companies and elevates our game by adding a division with a talented management team, and an established presence in North America, Asia, Europe and South America, along with the industry leading technology.”
Both the Trucent and AST/CentraSep leadership teams see this as an important step in the futures of the companies. The former AST/CentraSep operation will remain in Noblesville, IN, and Jeff Beattey, founder and CEO, will remain as the president of the Trucent CentraSep Technologies division. “We are excited to bring these two dynamic companies together, leveraging our collective engineering talents, skilled team members and world class customer commitment. Trucent has a fundamental knowledge around the science of fluid separation, excellent laboratory and analytical skills, and a broad onsite service network throughout North America.”
