We Build A Better Conveyor Because We Invented the Industry’s Highest Quality Chain

Our founders started CDM more than 40 years ago under the premise that building the highest quality, longest-lasting conveyors for heavy-duty industrial applications started with the chain. The CDM founders worked in bulk material handling industries for many years and saw the challenges of industries such as; chemical, energy, power generation, glass, pulp & paper, and minerals processing to maintain optimum production levels with conveyors that could not meet the 24/7, aggressive demands of the applications. In their quest to serve the industry better, our founders broke away from the conveyor design norm to start their own company on the foundation of constructing a superior conveyor chain. The chain formula was perfected through rigorous testing and analysis with the final genesis combining the right exterior hardness with a softer malleable core. This combination provides exceptional strength while offering flexibility and mitigating brittle cracking. It is this unique chain formula coupled with our material handling and conveyor design expertise that makes CDM different from other conveyor manufacturers.

Today CDM remains a strong, highly-respected chain and conveyor manufacturer. We provide our chain, drive components, and conveyors to a global customer base who is searching for durability and quality for aggressive material transfer applications. Our philosophy and passion for serving our customers with the quality, design, and service that exceeds expectations is engrained in our culture.

In 2013 our company was purchased by KMC Global, a group of industrial material handling manufacturers with a broad range of equipment that is complementary to our drag chain conveyor. This change in leadership has allowed CDM to continue to grow and to provide our company, employees, and customers with added engineering and manufacturing resources while allowing us to maintain our customer-focused principles.
