“American manufacturing is back. This new division of Adams allows us to further live out our mission statement of strengthening American manufacturing by increasing our customer’s competitiveness in the global marketplace through increased productivity and profitability,” said Doug Adams, Adams Air vice-president of sales. “The vendor partners we have chosen are the industry leaders in their respective categories for design, technology, and innovation. Creating the right partnerships to provide our customers with additional solutions was critical to us.”
Vendor partners for the Automation & Controls division are: 80/20, Balluff, Cognex, Epson Robots, Kollmorgen, Omron, and Murr Elektronic.
The company says it has trained its entire staff and added internal and external resources to help customers select, design, and implement these new solutions.
“Our goal is to have multiple resources our customers can utilize throughout their design process, essentially becoming an extension of their engineering group. We set our vision in 2010 to be the leading resource in the state of Florida for innovative, sustainable design, and successful application implementation from components to complete machine control. With this new division we now have that ability,” said Doug.
