Transmission specialist ADR opens in South Florida


Tampa, Florida-based ADR Power Systems has established a satellite branch in South Florida. 

Will Odling, most recently Technical Superintendent Supervisor with Fraser, will lead the South Florida team from its space at Strike Marine in Davie.

“ADR were my go-to transmission and control guys when I worked at Fraser,,” Odling said. “No matter the location, the time of day or day of the week, ADR would go above and beyond to make our emergency their emergency. No companies are doing what ADR does.”

ADR is a ZF Marine partner and are Twin Disc specialists. The company is an authorized dealer for ZF transmission and control system with full rebuild capabilities and electronic support. ADR is also a dealer for Glendinning control systems.

The company is looking to hire transmission mechanics who have ZF or Twin Disc experience.

“It’s so difficult to even hire people; transmission mechanics are extremely hard to find,” Odling said.

Begun in Tampa in 2015 by Andrew Hudgins, David Arata and Rick DeBord, the company soon expanded to Jacksonville, and this summer opened in South Florida. 

For more information, visit or contact Odling directly at or +1 786-731-4291.
