Our story began twenty-some years ago when SDS, a Korean company who developed a patented bending mechanism used in Die Making, partnered with AdamsTech, a US company, to distribute and service the EasyBender. That partnership flourished in the Die Making industry and expanded into the Sign Making industry with the introduction of the ChannelBender line of channel letter benders. In July of 2017, SDS chose to take over sales/distribution and service in the U.S. and so the partnership between SDS and AdamsTech came to an end. To ease the transition and to facilitate awareness and continuity, SDS chose to do business for a limited amount of time as SDS/Adamstech. Now, more than a year after the partnership was dissolved, SDS has chosen to move forward with a new name, SDS Automation, which reflects more clearly what the business is all about, namely, a focus on automating processes in Die- and Sign-making.
SDS Automation remains dedicated to the Die- and Sign-making industries and through a core focus on meeting customer needs, will continue to develop innovative new products. Nearly all the employees who helped the company grow into what it is today, are still onboard. In addition to offering top-quality benders, SDS Automation is partnering with other manufacturers, like Cutlite Penta, to provide state-of-the-art lasers and more. We look forward to continuing to serve our existing customers as well as earning the trust of new friends.
We have two locations (shown below), with our headquarters remaining in Boulder, CO and our showroom in Irvine, CA. The showroom was developed so that people would have a place to go where they can see our machines in operation. Please let us know if you’d like to visit and bring the family along. Disneyland is nearby. Both locations will have service centers as well.

It’s time to start thinking about the 2019 ISA Sign Expo in Las Vegas from Tuesday-Friday, April 23-26, 2019 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Of course, we’ll be there and as usual, plan to have a few surprises up our sleeves. Stop by our booth, #2309, to learn more. Registration information will be available soon! Learn more.
Well, 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.
