ISA 2018 – Post Show

ISA 2018Well, the final numbers are in for ISA Sign Expo 2018 and it was record-setting! There were 20,387 attendees at the show this year and to us it seemed like every one of them visited the SDS/AdamsTech booth at some point on Thursday. It was busy beyond words! This indicated to us that many attendees had the specific intention of visiting SDS/AdamsTech to see what new innovations we were unveiling at the show. The entire SDS/AdamsTech team would like to extend a personal THANK YOU to all who stopped by our booth to take a look at our products and equipment. Whether you bought one of our machines at the show or are planning to do so shortly, know that we are committed to making it the best purchasing and ownership experience you’ve ever had. We believe in long term relationships founded in trust and respect and we understand that we will have to earn both, just as we have earned our outstanding reputation as an industry leader. Long term also means we are dedicated to providing unparalleled customer support year after year.

We introduced many new products at the show and hope you had a chance to see them all. If you missed something, like our new sign-making laser or our ChannelStitcher, we’d be happy to demonstrate them or any of our machines at our new, year-round showroom in Irvine, California.

Let us know if you’d like to schedule an appointment.

SDS/AdamsTech – now distributing Satellite City adhesives

Satellite CityIf all adhesives were equal, it wouldn’t matter which adhesive you use to attach faces to LetterForm® channel letters, but that’s just not the case. Therefore, to facilitate the production of LetterForm channel letters with acrylic faces and ensure maximum performance, we and a few select customers have done the research and testing and found that Satellite City adhesives are among the best adhesives available for our Trimless channel letter application. Better still, SDS/AdamsTech is now a distributor for Satellite City adhesives, making it easy for you to purchase the right adhesive at the same time you order LetterForm coil from us.

SDS/AdamsTech Partners with SignComp

A new manufacturing facility is being developed in Irvine, CA, which will facilitate faster production and delivery of products, and better enable us to develop, test, and introduce new products. The new company will feature SDS machinery, as well as continued sales and service of other products including Cutlite Penta lasers and Delta Diemaking equipment from our office in Boulder, CO.

A new president, Tony Lim, has taken over. Tony has been involved with the sale of SDS products in the Americas for nearly as long as Mike and Ellen. Other key employees who will continue on with SDS/AdamsTech are Connie Adams, James Cross, and John Wiley. Read more

ChannelBender Takes Vegas by Storm

Super ChannelBender XPI’d like to offer my most sincere thanks to those who took the time to visit the SDS/AdamsTech booth at ISA Sign Expo to learn more about our industry leading ChannelBender Series equipment. “What a great show”! Thanks to you and the other many thousands of attendees this year, I’m happy to report that the level of enthusiasm for our products has never been greater! In addition to our still game-changing Trimless channel letter systems, interest in our new Super ChannelBender XP exceeded our expectations. Feedback, so far, indicates that our new Super XP will secure its place as one of the most popular channel letter bending machines in the industry and we couldn’t be happier.

Whether you’re looking for the ability to produce Trimless channel letters, halo lit channel letters or traditional trim cap style letters, our patented machines and materials are capable of producing top quality channel letters with less waste and at lower cost than any of our competitors.

If you require any additional information the AdamsTech team is here for you, as we have been for more than 20 years.
