Based in Houston, TX, Axxiom manufactures Schmidt blasting equipment, components, engineered systems, moisture separators, air dryers, aftercoolers, and storage and transfer systems for the abrasive blasting industry.

Mission and Capabilities

The Asia Pacific region is the world’s fastest-growing market for infrastructure-related products, equipment and services.

Total Schmidt’s mission is to “provide the lowest real cost, environmentally and safest surface preparation solutions to blasting and painting businesses by manufacturing and reselling high-productivity equipment and abrasives.”

The company supplies valves and control systems as well as systems for blasting, material recovery, conveying and storage.

With a full engineering and design staff on site, Total Schmidt will serve the manufacturing, construction, transportation, agriculture, oil and petrochemical and other industries.

Management

Total Abrasion owners Aaron Williams and Steve Clare will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the new venture.

Williams and Clare have a total of more than 20 years of senior executive management and business development experience in the abrasive, surface preparation and ultra-high-pressure waterjet cutting industries in the Asia-Pacific region.
