Purchased over 30 machines from Adelco

My first dealings with Adelco were in 1984, when I purchased 4 Precision Oval machines. I was dealing with the founder Alan Smith who started the company and saw the opening in this new industry – T–Shirt printing. Alan was technically excellent and had the key salesman skills, namely customer service and back-up.  Since then I have purchased various print machines, dryers, and packing equipment from Adelco.

I watched Mark and Leigh push through and take over the business.  Mark had the salesman and service vision, whilst Leigh had the engineering education and background. Business is not always black and white, not always easy, but even if things have not been as I wanted we have always found the win-win solutions and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I purchased a Kornit DTG Printer from Adelco when the digital revolution arrived, and in 2017 I will purchase two more Adelco dryers.  I totted up that I have purchased over 30 machines from them during my years in the industry.

Luke is the new blood, highly technical, level-headed and sales orientated, the company is in good hands.
