Founded in 1974, by Tom Adlam (II) together with his father Tom Adlam (I) and his brother Conrad Adlam, Adlam Engineering began in a small workshop in Pomona (a suburb of Kempton Park) that they rented with only one employee. The three of them started off as a partnership and later converted their partnership to a proprietary Limited company in 1978. Their younger brother, Rudie Adlam also joined them in later years, making it a true family business. They soon became known for their quality of manufacturing in 1978 they moved to Benoni. Initially they rented the property but bought it later years. With constant expansion they were forced to move in 2009 to a new location in Boksburg East. Today Adlam Engineering with their gear cutting division covers more than 12,000 square meters.
