About Us

Old World Business Values

Amdek, Inc. originated in 1991 by Robert Tetzlaff, the son of a naturalized citizen Roger W. Tetzalff, who immigrated to the United States in 1949 as an indentured servant. Robert was trained “old world school,” meaning if you ran or sold a machine, you learned how to build one. He went to Germany for 10 months as an apprentice at Battenfeld GMBH to learn all aspects of building a molding machine. He also started on the ground floor of pad printing with his now 27 year relationship with ITW Transtech as an independent sales representative. After fourteen years working for Boeing, Norton, SCI and VEC as a plastics and engineering manager, Robert started RWT Plastic Systems, Inc.

In the fall of 2016 Amdek Inc, Robert purchased Dave Shepard Enterprises in Hillsboro, OR. We are headquartered in Somerville, AL, with additional decorating facilities in Baileyton, AL and Newberg, Oregon.

Robert and his team take pride in over 20 years of hands-on-service old-world values, superior products, start-up assistance, and pure loyalty and dedication to all of their customers.
