A Journey Through Innovation

ADS was founded in 1984 by Mamdouh Assaad and Bob Fess who both had the vision of providing customers with quality automation machine designs.

Our current owner, Scott Costain, worked alongside ADS at an automation house in the Rochester area, partnering together for some of their mechanical design needs. Overtime, Scott saw how passionate and reliable ADS was and became part of the ADS team. In 2014, Scott received the opportunity to purchase ADS, which he could not pass up. We have celebrated 30 years in business and continue to grow and reach new heights, providing our customers with the machine design needs they deserve.
