Aturia began to operate in the Centrifugal Pumps sector in 1927 and became a leader in the Submersible Electric Pumps field by patenting the Submersible Motor in 1946. In 1960 it extended its markets to countries in the Mediterranean, America and Asia. Over time Aturia acquired four top Italian companies: Rotos (1990), Marelli (1990), Audoli & Bertola (2003) and Aris Chiappa (2009).
Rotos was set up in 1919 and manufactured electrical motors, monobloc pumps, multistage pumps and vertical pumps. In 1962 it entered French group GUINARD and became a development centre for multistage pumps. Based on this experience, it started to produce pumps for the process industry (ISO 2858 and API 610). In 2005 it started to produce magnetic drive pumps in its plant-based in Taglio di Po.
