History & Culture

Products developed from A&D's unique skills in analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion technology have helped to produce state-of-the-art equipment, including electronic balances, scales, weighing indicators and blood pressure monitors. Our range allows users to measure accurately in innovative ways that fit their individual needs, while at the same time providing cost-effective, reliable and user-friendly products.

A&D has built its reputation on a commitment to providing quality products and services while rapidly responding to international needs for innovative and accurate measurement tools. A primary strategy is superior customer satisfaction. A&D constantly analyzes market needs around the world to develop a full range of products for business, industry, education and healthcare use.

Manufacturing

Since its inception in 1977, A&D has successfully grown to become a multi-national manufacturer with factories in Japan, China, Korea and Australia, reflecting the worldwide demand for its cutting-edge products.

A&D weighing and medical products are designed and manufactured to meet global requirements. We seek global solutions to ensure economies of scale in production that result in higher quality, low life cost and superior cost effectiveness.

A&D invests heavily in state-of-the-art manufacturing. Our four manufacturing facilities around the world are equipped with the extensive capital equipment needed to minimize manufacturing costs while maintaining quality of the highest standards. We are committed to certification under IS0 9000 worldwide standards for quality.

Extended Life at Lower Running Cost

Since our products are often manufactured with fewer mechanical and electronic parts, they are more reliable and easier to repair in the event that service is necessary. Our products are designed to be easy to service and no special service tools or equipment are required. This means that our customers can look forward to years of quality performance from their A&D products with the lowest maintenance costs in the industry.

A&D was born during the early days of digital electronics. At that time, most of the measuring, monitoring and controlling industry was still using mechanical products to solve their problems. But, change came quickly and many manufacturers of these products did not survive the transition.

However, our background is in electronics, which allowed our highly successful entry into the weighing market with low cost, advanced digital indicators and a rapidly expanding line of digital weighing, controlling and testing products. Our early knowledge led to early success, and set the stage for our growth as a world-class manufacturer of digital products for medicine, science and industry.

Our continuing success has come about through our ability to change, and this skill has never been more important than it is today. Not only are new advancements appearing every day, but markets, distribution channels as well as the competition are changing all the time.

In recognition of this change, A&D embarked on a comprehensive program to provide a much wider product range, from basic low-cost products to high-technology products. We are constantly expanding our international manufacturing to take advantage of favorable regional economics. We are also broadening our distribution to reach previously unavailable markets, and we are re-engineering our information systems throughout our global organization to meet 21st century standards.

A&D is constantly working towards more advanced development and state-of-the-art technology with the promise of an even brighter future, a future that will provide greater opportunities and more rewards for our global associates, while providing a better service to our customers.
