Adams Industries, Inc. was started in 1994 as La Agencia Mundial, Sociedad Anonimo which is Spanish for The Global Agency, Inc. and shows how the focus of the original business was in Latin America. After becoming a registered exporter of technologies falling under the jurisdiction of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), the company courted and secured a helicopter company and a night vision manufacturer to represent throughout Latin America.
Business started very strong as Adams Industries, Inc. almost immediately sold a helicopter to Chile. This was followed by night vision sales to Ecuador. It was at this point that the limitations of a Spanish company name became relevant as potential customers were starting to show up in other parts of the world. So they did what many companies in Latin America do and took the first letter from each word of the company name “La Agencia Mundial, Sociedad Anonimo” , and changed it to LAMSA.
If you have heard of them, it’s probably under the LAMSA or LAMSA Weapons Systems name, which they held until January 2006. Adams Industries, Inc. is the culmination of running this company for over a decade and finally realizing that this really is a family owned and operated business. Not to mention that more people seem able to pronounce Adams Industries, Inc. than LAMSA.
Over the years their business model has expanded, still being able to provide low cost technology solutions for governments (Law Enforcement and Military) from a trusted cadre of suppliers. Today, they also engineer and manufacture high technology products that either address unsatisfied market needs, or address those needs better than the existing products in the market.
Providing the highest quality equipment they can to their clients is an obsession for Adams Industries, Inc. and we hope that you find their products to be as rock solid for you as they are a source of pride for them.
