About Us

In 2004, Mr. John Taylor saw an opportunity to better serve the manufacturing industry and started Automation Design Group Inc. He knew the challenges associated with the fast-paced nature of automation and manufacturing, but was confident that his team could provide the appropriate solutions. Throughout the years ADG has developed a highly skilled team of designers capable of not only meeting, but often exceeding its customers’ requirements.

Quality has always been at the forefront of ADG’s values and that is reflected by its reputation amongst its peers and customers in the industry. This is achieved through cutting-edge designs, attention to detail, and diligent management of each and every project.

ADG developed a close association with Larca Custom Machining Inc. (owned by the Koehler family) through years of service to a common customer base. When Mr. Taylor decided to retire in 2017, he felt confident leaving the company in the very capable hands of the Koehler family. The complementary nature of the two organizations facilitated a smooth transition and their newly combined strengths elevated their already excellent service to their customers.

Today, ADG continues to deliver the same high quality that its customers have come to expect, while continuously striving to learn, grow, and excel.
