In early 1963, a successful partnership was formed between Oliver K. Hobbs and J. Carlie Adams. The partnership combined engineering, manufacturing, and marketing expertise to produce a new generation of peanut harvesting and processing machinery. During the decades that followed, new products were added to meet the needs of the marketplace. Today Amadas Industries produces equipment in Suffolk, VA, Albany, GA and Cordoba, Argentina.
Amadas Industries’ current product lines include pull-type and self-propelled peanut combines, peanut diggers, Reel Rain® irrigators, cotton stalk puller/choppers, round cotton module handlers, long reach mowers, and a line of industrial equipment for both the horticultural and recycling industries. In a joint venture with John Deere, Amadas developed the world’s largest and highest capacity self-propelled peanut combine.
