Founded in 1991 by Joe Barna, CDE strategically shifted from a terminal- oriented focus to comprehensive support of all electromechanical and electromagnetic devices after its initial success.
Barna, CDE's president, says his company handles from 6,000 to 12, 000 units a month and more than 10 million devices nationally.
But while CDE
's primary expertise is in equipment repair, its secondary core is making older devices operate and appear as new.
"If you are a ma-and-pa company, you just want to process your credit cards.
You don't want a new machine.
You don't want to spend money for new machines," Barna
To satisfy that market segment's need, CDE
provides refurbished equipment complete with stickers that say, "This equipment was manufactured by (fill in the blank) and refurbished by CDE
" and offers them at prices well below the cost for a brand new, out-of-the-box device.
is a privately owned company and not affiliated with any one manufacturer, an added bonus to its customers is the fact that CDE
provides repair and refurbishing services for all branded equipment in any merchant base, not just for one particular manufacturer.
"We can take any 10-year-old piece of equipment and make it look like it just came off the assembly line," Barna
recognizes that certain items can be patented, and it strives to improve dramatically the parts it refurbishes.
"We never try to fob off on consumers that we are actually making parts," Barna
"We are making replacement parts like rubber keypads versus old individual 16-key plastic keypads."
also recognizes that manufacturers are focused on new widgets while, for CDE
, there is little residual in keeping the old ones in the field.
It makes for interesting interaction.
"We have a love-hate relationship with manufacturers," Barna
"We want to help little ISOs get bigger," Barna
says, "We are probably more of an asset to our competitors.
