AUTOMATED CONVEYOR SYSTEMS, INC. was founded in 1975 by Mr. James D. Taylor and Mr. George Ramsey. ACS was originally located on Kemper Street in historic downtown Lynchburg, Virginia. On two occasions during the early 1980’s, the company leased additional space to offset growth. On December 31st, 1986 the company purchased the 74,000 square foot building.
In 1996 ACS expanded again building a new 143,220 square foot, air conditioned building, on a 13 acre site. The current facility houses the manufacturing, engineering and administrative departments of the company in a central location, which facilitates better collaboration between the business units. The additional space also enabled ACS to streamline the conveyor manufacturing process, thus increasing capacity and the quality of each product.
ACS expanded once more in 2014 when a 38,000 square foot addition was constructed to create new space for the storage, shipping, and maintenance needs of our growing company thereby making available additional space for assembly, research and development.
