About Us

About Us

In 1976, our journey began with the initiation of operations at the Canton, SD facility under the umbrella of McCord Corporation. In 2004, a new era for the Behr Heat Transfer plant in Canton was marked by a Monday morning press conference. Mike Adams, current Chief engineering manager at Behr, purchased the location and now serves as CEO of the newly formed company. The uncertainty of whether the old Behr plant would live on, was officially put to rest. Today, Adams now serves over four hundred employees and has expanded to seven branches world-wide.

Our Mission Statement

At Adams Thermal Systems, we are dedicated to engineering and manufacturing advanced thermal energy solutions through technology and innovation. We prioritize collaborative relationships with clients, partners, suppliers, and employees. Our commitment extends to being responsible corporate citizens, making positive contributions to our communities and society. We welcome diverse perspectives that align with our values. Profits are applied to address various forms of human poverty, reflecting our mission to excel in business while creating a meaningful impact on the world.
