About Sanders Equipment Company
Founded by Bill Sanders as a means of catering to cost-conscious industrial
centrifuge users, Sanders Equipment Company is based in Palm Harbor, Florida,
USA. Clients come from a variety of industries — chemical, pharmaceutical,
food, beverage, mining, environmental, marine, plastics, petroleum, manufacturing
History — Sanders Equipment Company
Mr. Sanders successfully completed the honors program in Business Administration
at Western Illinois University (Macomb) in 1977, then served his country in
the U.S. Navy as an Operations Specialist (USS Cushing DD-985 and USS Berkeley
DDG-15, both homeported in San Diego, CA) until 1987.
Mr. Sanders spent the next five years working for
Aaron Equipment Company (Bensenville, IL), perhaps the world's largest used
process equipment dealer. His boss and mentor was his good friend Ken Kyte,
a chemical engineer with a 12-year history at Sharples. His time was spent
learning about centrifuge applications in a variety of process industries,
as well as buying, selling and reconditioning centrifuges — decanters, high-speed
disc separators, baskets, pushers, peelers, tubulars, Pods, Mercones and others.
With this extensive training behind him, and the full
support of his family, Mr. Sanders decided it was time for a change. By late
1992 Sanders Equipment Company became a reality — an entrepreneurial dream
In a deliberate effort to keep overhead to a minimum, Sanders Equipment
Company has always been a home-based operation. From the start, Mr. Sanders
determined to focus his efforts on meeting the needs of one niche market:
cost-conscious centrifuge users — start-up companies with knowledgeable
partners, but limited funds, and large firms that got that way by demanding
the best value for their money. He found that, other than government
projects, where municipal bonds provide million dollar budgets, most companies
are very cost-conscious — and they realize that, just like a new car, a new
centrifuge becomes a used centrifuge as soon as they take delivery
The Good News
The major difference, Mr. Sanders notes, is that the centrifuge does
not depreciate and become obsolete at the same rate as the automobile. If
properly maintained, centrifuges can last for 40 or 50 years! New models do
not come out each year and improvements are generally very minor. Computerized
controls are probably the fastest changing component of the system — and can
be upgraded independently.
A word from Bill Sanders
What does all this mean to you? Simply this: I have the ability to offer
you the best price on a given used centrifuge — unless you have access to
all my sources and suppliers. Even with search engines on the internet at
your disposal, this is still highly unlikely. And as a small, dynamic company,
I am able to offer personal service with an uncommon degree of thoroughness.
I am a perfectionist with the highest ethical standards. Your satisfaction
is my #1 goal - not making a sale. I work hard, because I love helping people.
I hope you will give me the opportunity to serve you and your centrifuge needs
— starting now and continuing for years to come.
