SAER Elettropompe: a success story
This year marks the seventieth anniversary of the founding of SAER Elettropompe. To celebrate this important anniversary, the Emilian company - based in Guastalla in the province of Reggio Emilia - has produced and published on the YouTube platform an evocative video that retraces the most significant stages in its history. Founded in 1951, at a time when Italy was preparing to invest heavily in making water a resource available to all citizens, SAER Elettropompe has grown by following and in some cases anticipating the developments that would characterise the water resources sector. The Reggio Emilia-based company thus diversified its activities, moving in the early 1950s from the manufacture of pumps for agriculture and irrigation - the green livery of the models is intended to evoke SAER Elettropompe's original vocation - to the production of machines for the civil sector. The following decades, especially between the Nineties and the year 2000, were characterised by the great impulse given by the Emilian manufacturer to research and development. Innovation has allowed the Guastalla-based company to create a versatile range, characterised by working ranges up to 10,000 m3 per hour and a wide range of models, designed not only for the industrial sector but also for the mining and marine/off-shore sectors, where the company has become particularly active. Today SAER is able to offer complete solutions for water treatment, including technologies for wastewater management. "The products," the company explains in a technical note, "can be made from different types of materials, from cast iron to AISI 316 stainless steel, from Super Duplex to bronze, with an in-house process (SAER Elettropompe has never delocalised). SAER's decision to keep its plants in Italy was a winning choice both for the company, which has thus maintained very high quality standards and reduced order processing times to a minimum, and for the economic fabric of Reggio Emilia, which has continued to have SAER Elettropompe as an important production reference point.
