In Memory of Richard C. Adams
September 27th 1925 - April 4th 2011

Richard C. Adams    On April 4th of 2011, A C Power Company lost our founder and beloved friend, father, grandfather and mentor Richard "Dick" Adams. 
    Richard started in the industry as owner of Adams Cleaners in the 1950's.  He took a small corner dry cleaners and developed it into a commercial entity with multiple locations and a fleet of pickup and delivery trucks.  His innovations and creativity made Adams Cleaners one of the largest and most successful dry cleaning operations in Philadelphia. 
    In 1975, after selling his dry cleaning business he transitioned to equipment distributor.  A C Power Company was founded and began providing the Wascomat equipment line to Eastern Pennsylvania.  For the next 35 years Richard grew A C Power into a full service commercial laundry equipment distributorship adding both a parts and service department to compliment his achievements in sales, as well as expanding the companies territory.  Richard Adams
    Throughout his tenure Richard assisted in the development of over 200 coin laundromats and dry cleaning plants and serviced over 1000 customers across 4 states.  His dedication to the success of his customers was unmatched and he made A C Power into one of the most successful commercial laundry distributors in North America. 
    Richard retired in 2010 and transferred ownership of A C Power to his son-in-law and daughter, George and Sue Gibbs. His commitment to excellent service and customer satisfaction remains at the core of A C Power's business philosophy today.
    Richard's knowledge, passion and leadership will be sorely missed by his friends and family here at A C Power Company.
