Each week, our Proud to Manufacture in Michigan team picks from more than 1,000 member companies to name a Featured Manufacturer of the Week. Our latest winner is Advanced Decorative Systems!

Featured Manufacturer of the Week


The legacy of Advanced Decorative Systems (ADS) begins more than 160 years ago when a small family business was founded in Europe in 1860, eventually moving into the United States in 1902. Now more than a century and a half later, ADS has production facilities in four countries and has grown to become a global leader in the design and manufacturing of decorative plastics for automotive, medical and consumer markets.

ADS is one of the largest and most advanced companies in the industry today, possessing a wide variety of tools and talent to fill every customer need. With a facility in Millington, Mich., ADS is capable of making products including graphic overlays, panels, bezels, appliques, dials, assemblies, mechanisms and more.

ADS continually produces industry-leading technology through a significant investment in research. With more than a century of accomplishments in innovative product making, identification and decoration, ADS is now working on the next challenge. They have developed the next generation touch panel, which incorporates printed circuitry and insert molded connectors into thermoformed, two-shot molded parts.

Due to their ongoing legacy and contribution to the industry, Advanced Decorative Systems has been chosen as Proud to Manufacture in Michigan’s latest Featured Manufacturer of the Week!
