Historical reference for industrial storage

A historic player in the production of industrial storage, CDE was founded in 1966 by Georges Legros. The company became Chaudronnerie De l’Est in 1971, and gradually evolved by increasing its production capacity and modernising its manufacturing lines, to become the leading French manufacturer of cylindrical tanks in 1996. Over the years, CDE has strengthened its experience and expertise, obtaining certifications proving the quality of its products, its manufacturing processes, but also and above all its relations with its customers.

Now the leading French manufacturer of storage tanks, CDE continues to evolve within the ALCE group. More than ever, the company is committed to continuing to optimise its production, while being part of a continuous improvement process for the benefit of its customers.
