About CDR

C.D.R. 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. FerdinandoAbordi, took the leadership of the company andhe started to develop new products and solution, focusing especially on chemical and pharmaceutical industry applications.



In 1978 a major milestone in CDR history was laid into production with the first plastic and metallic magnetic driven pumps.
