Client-driven, and ready for Russia – An interview with ACD CRYO’s Patrick Ravinel


ACD CRYO, originally named CRYOPUMP, was formed in the Basel area in 1987, by a group of marketing and technical individuals, all of whom had gained experience in cryogenic pumps and the connected business.

In a bid to move into Europe, Cryogenic Industries took over Cryopump in 1990, an acquisition which saw the name changed in 1998 to ACD CRYO, “for the purposes of better identification with the group leading pump company ACD,” Ravinel says.

Today ACD CRYO operates with two European offices, notably ACD CRYO AG in Switzerland, which is responsible for the sale of new pumps throughout Europe and Africa; and ACD CRYO GmbH in Germany, which is responsible for manufacturing, service and spare parts sales within the same region.
