Noxon was established in 1987 with dewatering centrifuge as company’s core product. The reason for this was that cofounders of the company, Lars Åke Larsson and Göran Mård, by working with dewatering centrifuges saw ways of improving them which has sparked the initiative of developing centrifuges of their own. In the course of company development the product portfolio has been extended with polymer machines and sludge regulators and in-house manufactured control systems and accessories for dewatering. There are many customer groups that the company can target with its separation solutions, one of the major ones being water and waste water (W&WW) treatment plants. Today turnover of the company is on the level of EUR 7 million, employing 38 people.
Noxon’s customers operate in many different sectors, which is why Noxon’s products can be adapted in many ways to work in each organization. Decanter centrifuges are often used for local authority industrial dewatering, but can just as easily work with oil sludge, slaughterhouse sludge, fish sludge, digested sludge, bio sludge, paper/cellulose sludge, etc.
