Origins

Adah International was founded in 2015 by ambitious, industrial project managers with decades' experience in both European and North American operations planning and development.  

 

Inspired by a growing need for international, industrial expertise, Adah developed a strategy to provide multi-discipline and multi-lingual experts locally, through project-based or on-demand delivery.  

Behind the name "Adah"

Grandmother Kirkpatrick  Granny Sumner (

Inspiration for naming the company Adah, came from Adah Kirkpatrick.

 

Adah was born in 1898, in Walker County, Alabama to a Native American mother. She gave birth to seven children, who had 14 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren.

 

Two of those great-grandchildren, who admired her and the many family reunions she hosted, made a promise to keep her name alive. 

Adah passed away in 1997, at the age of 99. Today, her name lives on through our company, Adah International.
