AdamsTech Team Grows with Return of John Wiley

John WileyJune 2016 – Boulder, CO – AdamsTech announced today the return of John Wiley, an all-star salesman. As they continue to expand their reach in the diemaking industry and with two new machines scheduled to hit the market this year, AdamsTech is excited to welcome him back.

According to Mike Adams, owner and CEO of AdamsTech, “John is a personal friend who was with us in the beginning when we first introduced the EasyBender. Because of his years of experience and vast working knowledge in the diemaking industry, we were very excited when John first came on board. During the time he worked for us, he identified hundreds of customers, understood their needs and provided solutions that are still in operation today. We are very proud to welcome him back as we prepare to introduce new machines to our customers.”

Mr. Wiley, who has a rich background in service, sales, and solutions, got his start in diemaking in the late ’90s. Originally a die salesman, John joined AdamsTech with a wealth of insight and relatability to the diemaking world, making him an ideal fit for the team. His ability to naturally connect with customers and understand their operational needs, quickly won him the title of top salesman at AdamsTech. To this day, John has the reputation of going the extra mile for customers. According to Ellen Adams, Vice President at AdamsTech, “I will never forget when John loaded up a machine and personally drove it to a customer site for a demonstration. He not only delivered the machine, he also pitched in and helped bend rule for the customer who was behind on deadlines and desperate to get back on track. This is a great example of the incredible capability of our machines, and more importantly the deep commitment of John to our customers.”

AdamsTech Installs Third Penta Dieboard Laser in Less Than Six Months

Solon, OH, March 29, 2016

AdamsTech completes another Penta die board laser installation at Ohio’s innovative consumer packaging provider, CardPak. The new laser was installed along with a second EasyBender steel rule bender/processor.

Today AdamsTech announced the successful installation of a new Penta dieboard laser with Rofin-Sinar laser source at the CardPak headquarters. This is their third installation of its kind in the past six months, with more in the works. CardPak reports that it is very pleased with the installation of the laser and the new EasyBender and that they have already increased production significantly.

According to Greg Ward, die making product manager for North America, an installation of this type requires extensive and careful planning. Greg says, “Our team began the pre-installation planning as soon as CardPak made the decision to purchase this upgrade to their existing dieshop operations. We arranged the shipping and importation, customs clearance, scheduling and rigging, as well as planning with electricians and other outside contractors. We were also able to assist CardPak in the layout and positioning of the equipment to maximize efficiency in their workflow.”
