ADR Power Systems, Inc. was founded by David Arata and Richard DeBord in October of 2015. Operations began in a small warehouse near the Channel District in Tampa, Florida, and focused on marine transmission services for recreational and commercial fishing vessels, ranging from small boats to mega yachts. Expert workmanship, coupled with rapid turn-around time, catapulted the company to broaden its presence to include the State of Florida, Eastern Seaboard, and the Caribbean.
Today, ADR Power Systems, Inc. possesses over one hundred years of combined Twin Disc experience and has expanded its service offering to include maritime electronic controls, marine engines, and industrial transmission repairs, among others. The company is composed of a balanced blend of skilled resources that act as a single-synchronized unit to minimize downtime and keep customers focused on their mission. ADR’s commitment to excellence has allowed them to become authorized dealers for ZF, Glendinning, & NACD.
Richard DeBord, an Ohio native, co-founder and President of the corporation, brings a wealth of technical knowledge related to marine & industrial transmissions. He is deeply committed to building a team that reflects the company core values, along with achieving the company mission. Richard understands that strong core values – customer service, excellence, teamwork, fairness, professionalism, integrity, respect, and trust – define ADR and are the key to success.
David Arata, co-founder and Vice President, began his career in the Navy as a power plant technician, where he was introduced to engine mechanics. This exposure evolved into a passion for mechanics, which in turn, lead him to the marine industry. Today, he leads operations which range from marine & industrial transmissions, to marine engines and electronics.
