MUKWONAGO — GS Global Resources announced Wednesday it has acquired Weston-based ADC Custom Products, which makes protective structures for machine operators.

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of GS Global Resources, the renamed acquired company is ADC Equipment Innovations. Operations will remain in Weston.

“We’ve always delivered pragmatic system and component design, innovative and reliable technologies, as well as production and market support through a single point of engineering accountability,” GS Global Resources President John Thornton said in a statement. “Now ADC Equipment Innovations makes interacting with us even easier for customers.”

Based in Mukwonago, GS Global Resources has been in business for 40 years and helps original equipment manufacturers interpret, adapt and adopt technology.

According to Wednesday’s announcement, “ADC Equipment Innovations adds to GS Global Resources reputation for development cycle and production line efficiency. As OEMs seek fewer suppliers, GS Global Resources provides customers a flexible product lineup ranging from engineered components to fully-integrated, scalable, plug and play systems.”

“Acquiring this highly-specialized technical knowledge of designing and building structures to protect machine operators reduces cost, decreases engineering effort and time, and streamlines manufacturing processes for OEMs,” Thornton said.
