AMDS - Alaska
Mining & Diving Supply was founded in 1976 in Anchorage, Alaska
by Dudley Benesch and Steve Herschbach. Dudley and Steve started the
company while in high school because of a shared interest in gold prospecting.
The business began as a supplier of gold dredges and related diving
equipment, hence the company name.
The price of gold began to rise and the company's fortunes rose with it. However, it became clear that mining was a seasonal business, and so the company added product lines. These product lines evolved naturally from the original mining and diving concept. Woodstoves were added to heat the miner's cabin. Chainsaws were added to fill the woodstove. Boats were added to transport divers, and outboards to power the boats. Snowmobiles were a key addition in keeping the company busy in the winter months.
