We focus our expertise and innovation on the Food & Beverage industry

We're Entrepreneurs & Innovators at Heart

Our Story

Our story begins in 1992, when Dr. Dennis Tobias formed Adaptive Resources as an advanced process control software company. He created our QuickStudy® Software which lead us to provide our customers with Process Control Consulting.  Our philosophy was to hire the brightest minds in the industry, and allow them to be creative and innovative. We soon grew from a consulting company to a Systems Integrator, providing full project execution.

In 2006, we opened our Dallas, TX office and added Panel Fabrication services to our product offering.  Additionally, we offered customers full panel design services and continued to grow our engineering staff with more PLC / Operator interface programmers.

In 2009, we expanded to Guadalajara, Mexico with engineering and panel fabrication capabilities and a focus on expanding our reach into all of Latin America.

Today, we are a truly global company with hundreds of successful projects under our belt.  Our focus is still on our people.  We hire and retain the brightest people in the industry.  Our engineers are focused on the latest technology to ensure our customers are operating at their highest efficiency.

We believe customer relationships are everything, and we work hard to sustain those relationships through excellence, effective communication and teamwork.
