From them we inherited resourcefulness and vision.

1958

The story begins

The Comer business project starts: Vittorio Pacinotti, Camillo Lagomarsini and Ferdinando Volpato together begin an adventure that will stay with them for life. The new company is involved in designing and manufacturing transformers and small AC motors

1969

Premises and productivity double

Comer moves into a new building owned by the company, doubles the surface area of the plant and increases production capacity.

1972

First DC motor line
Comer Impianti

The launch of the first line of DC motors entirely designed by Comer alone. This line is soon received by the market and Comer breaks into the complex industry of quality DC motors. Alberto Baroni and Mario Scarazzato kick off the Comer Impianti sales agency and contribute to the success of Comer around the country.

1983

DC motor development

The innovative line of DC motors develops with a rectangular laminated casing for 2-pole motors and a squared casing for 4-pole motors: the smallest is the 2-pole RTL 80 series, the largest is the 4-pole TL 200. They improve the performance of motors in DC and their power/weight ratio.

1990

Special asynchronous vector motors

The first line of asynchronous special "vector" motors appears; it uses the same sophisticated technology as the DC motor materials, applied to an AC motor design.

1995

Quality certification
New extension

Comer puts a quality control system in place and is among the first Italian companies to obtain the ISO9000 certification from the QCS institute. New offices and a new warehouse: with its 4000 sq m. of indoor space, Comer grows in size and capacity to satisfy even the most demanding customers.

2000

Motors Powertech Program

Powertech Program, the new line of special asynchronous motors with fully laminated casing is launched: high performance, compact size, attractive design; the Fluid AX series is developed with a liquid cooling circuit. The uniqueness of these engines draws the attention of important industrial groups who choose COMER as their partner.

2006

Comer Solutions

Comer Impianti becomes Comer Solutions, the new sales agency owned by Comer.

2009

Energy recovery testing room

The innovative testing room with 2.5MW obtained completely through energy recovery is inaugurated: respect for the environment and cutting edge technology to offer maximum technical support to customers.

2010

Torque permanent magnet motors

The first set of Torque permanent magnet motors is unveiled. These boast high polarity and an extremely high torque/size ratio. From the same basic design comes the series of generators in the 30kW-200kW range, to be installed on small wind turbines.

2011

Photovoltaic systems and the safeguarding of the environment

The 140kW photovoltaic system is created to satisfy 75% of the domestic energy needs of the company and to avoid the emission of about 90 tonnes of CO2 each year. Comer's ecological awareness for the protection of the environment is renewed.

2014

Wind generators
Vacuum impregnation systems and drying ovens

The first 100kW wind turbine is created with high performance 50rpm "direct drive" and a 710mm shaft height. A new expansion: the modern vacuum impregnation machinery and the new curing furnace system are manufactured; in addition the use of the latest formulated resins with a low environmental impact means that Comer ensures a further increase in product quality.

2015

The largest motor

This is the year that the largest motor is designed and built by Comer: 710mm axis height, 80,000Nm maximum torque, 1.7MW maximum power at 200rpm, the first of a series which goes up to 150,000Nm.

2016

Into the future

The journey towards the future continues. New functional and innovative applications are designed, futuristic materials are tested out. The corporate communications plan is developed: there's a new logo while web site content and style is updated to describe the company values and commitment of its people.
What's our dream? It's to leave the indelible mark of our passion on our daily work.
