A long history full of important experiences
Aturia began to operate in the Centrifugal Pumps sector in 1927 and became a leader in the Submersible Electric Pumps field by patenting the Submersible Motor in 1946. In 1960 it extended its markets to countries in the Mediterranean, America and Asia.
Over time Aturia acquired four top Italian companies: Rotos (1990), Marelli (1990), Audoli & Bertola (2003) and Aris Chiappa (2009).
Rotos was set up in 1919 and manufactured electrical motors, monobloc pumps, multistage pumps and vertical pumps. In 1962 it entered French group GUINARD and became a development centre for multistage pumps.
Based on this experience, it started to produce pumps for the process industry (ISO 2858 and API 610). In 2005 it started to produce magnetic drive pumps in its plant based in Taglio di Po.
Founded in 1891, it began to manufacture electrical motors and centrifugal pumps in 1898.
The company was acquired by Aturia together with Rotos in 1990.
Thanks to this acquisition, Gruppo Aturia extended its range of products considerably by including GIEM and ITEM’s pumps (monobloc pumps, split case pumps and large-capacity pumps).
The company started producing vertical pumps in 1890 and over the years it strengthened its presence on the market in terms of applications for the heavy industry (steel plants, cooling systems, power plants and the marine sector).
Gruppo Aturia acquired Audoli & Bertola in 2003, thus improving its presence in the industrial sector. Its office in Turin is currently a centre of excellence for fire-fighting systems (NFPA20, FM).
G. Chiappa Fonderie was established in Turin in 1921 as a steel plant and started to manufacture bronze, aluminium and cast iron casts.
In 1940 it began to produce vertical pumps.
For over forty years, in partnership with the world’s top gas turbine manufacturers, it has been developing pumps specifically designed for lubrication services.
