Michael Adams, who had been Director of Sales for the Equipment Group of Astechnologies and has held various sales and manufacturing positions with the company for more than 20 years, founded Adams International Technologies, Inc. in August, 2002.

All of the members of the AIT team, as well as others in the new company, know each and every piece of Astechnologies equipment, and have been intimately involved with the equipment from the design stage, through manufacturing, sales and installation at customer facilities,” Adams explains. “We know Astechnologies customers personally and we understand the potential customer markets.”
