CDA’s history began with the production of compact discs. Starting in 1994, CDA Impressing Solutions already began to shape the future of data replication on optical storage media. Today we are one of the largest independent producers of CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs in Europe.
Since 2005, we’ve also used our know-how for ‘flashing’ data on formats such as SD cards, micro-SD cards or SSD. That’s why our business unit CDA Flash Media Solutions delivers storage media for navigation devices to leading automobile manufacturers, among others. Currently we are able to manufacture four million parts per year.
In 2005, an additional business area was formed: CDA Microfunctional Solutions. This unit successfully modified the traditional method of injection molding, and so created our own process for the mass production of complex microstructures made of polymer.
Through the continual development of new business areas, our company has progressed from a CD pressing plant into an internationally active technology company and a globally operating partner in future markets such as automotive, consumer electronics, automation engineering, medical, biotechnology and other life sciences.
In 2014, CDA merged with OEM, one of the most successful manufacturers of optical storage media in North America with headquarters in Charlotte (North Carolina). Through the fusion with the US company, we have been able to open up new, highly lucrative fields of activity and transatlantic markets.
Currently, CDA engages over 500 employees in Suhl, Germany and in Charlotte (North Carolina), USA. Additional CDA production sites are in Shanghai (China), Mumbai (India) and Melbourne (Australia).
Inspired by the needs of our customers, CDA is a technology partner for intelligent solutions that benefit society as a whole and contribute to higher standards of living around the world.
