History

When CDM was founded in 1951 we manufactured exclusively plastic cork materials; however, as a result of investment in research, development and testing we soon expanded our activities to offer comprehensive engineered solutions.

In the early 1960’s we were pioneers in “building base isolation” and showcased the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp as our first major multifunctional building project of this type.

In 1990 our joint venture with the Amorim group, the worlds largest producer of cork products, resulted in the development of a new range of elastomer materials which opened enabled us to offer a much wider portfolio of products and opened up exciting new markets for us - including the rail market.

Soon after, as part of our ongoing environmental commitment, we invested in the development and manufacture of recycled rubbers which were added to our product range in 2004.

Today CDM’s focus is to provide the best possible engineered solutions for noise and vibration challenges in the building and industrial markets.
