Centrisys/CNP announces facility expansion, earns leadership award
Centrisys/CNP, based in Kenosha, Wisconsin, announced the completion of a 34,000-square-foot building expansion, including an upgrade of its balancing equipment with a centrifuge balancing bunker in the interior of the building. A company committee was formed to design and build the balancing bunker space and determine what equipment would work best. The bunker isolates the operator in a protected control area and includes video monitoring to see into the balancing areas, avoiding proximity to the running equipment. Cranes are installed overhead to place parts and components in the balancing cradles.

With this product, Centrisys/CNP allows for the industry to not only accelerate the sustainability of anaerobic digestion, but also to enhance thermal hydrolysis process.

Capital Rubber Co-Founder Dies After Battling Cancer

Barbara Feldman, co-founder of Capital Rubber, has battled cancer for the past several years. While family reports she was resilient and strong-willed throughout the difficult treatments, this past challenge was too difficult to beat, and she died peacefully in her home surrounded by family.

"We are very much appreciative of all of the warm and caring messages that have been received," says company president Bryan Feldman. "From clients, to vendors, to reps, to accountants and landlords — all who worked with her were impacted by her energy and strong spirit. She was in the industry for 48 years and was passionate not about selling rubber and plastics, but about making connections and helping clients with their challenging projects.

"A small service was already held, and details can be found at the Chicago Tribune website. Barbara was very active in cancer wellness programs, fundraisers and education. Please ensure that you and your loved ones are screened and informed, and consider donating to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition or a cancer foundation of your choice."
