CDR Pompe e Motori origins are dated before WW II. Beginning in the early 50’ s, Mr. Ferdinando Abordi acquired “ARI Pompe”, a family business company,which production was based on cast iron pumps designed for domestic, agricultural and industrial uses.
In the mid 60’ s the evolving market was requiring new and sophisticated product, and its founder transformed the Company into a flexible structure, dedicated to special constructions and began to manufacture stainless steel and special alloy pumps. Later on, was also started the production of horizontal and vertical, single stage pumps in accordance with DIN 24256 standards for the chemical industry.
In the early 70’s, CDR decided to extend its production to pumps made from plastic materials.
At the end of 1977, Mr. Maurizio Abordi, son of Mr. Ferdinando Abordi, took the leadership of the company and started developing new products and solution, focusing on chemical and pharmaceutical industry applications most of all.
In 1978 a major milestone in CDR history was laid into production with the first plastic and metallic magnetic driven pumps.
The ISO 9001 certification was achieved in 1999.
In 2002 CDR Pompe developed the first lined plastic pump and launched the ETN-L pump in PP and ETFE, designed for tanker unloading duties for toxic and corrosive liquids. In 2004 it was created the ETS (an equivalent pump but in AISI 316). Both sub-ISO models will reveal to be very convenient thanks to their price/quality ratio. In the same year it was introduced, as better quality material, the PFA: it was available for all processed line models ISO 2858/5199 like magnetic drive and mechanical seal.
CDR’s remarkable growth during the years has been driven by genuine word-of-mouth and recommendations based on our product excellence, prices fairness and the successfull service reliability in thousend applications.
