History & Culture
in 1977, A&D Company, Ltd. has grown from developing
digital-to-analog converters for companies such as Nippon Telegraph
& Telephone, to becoming a world-class producer of advanced
measuring equipment for medicine, science and industry. A&D
established itself as a multinational corporation, with offices in the
United States, Great Britain, Germany, Australia, Korea, Taiwan and
Russia, and as a world leader in measurement equipment. A&D's
competitive edge is the direct result of its ability to leverage strong
engineering and manufacturing capabilities, while incorporating highly
accurate analog and digital technologies into broad product lines
focused to provide customers with the greatest value.
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
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

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
our products are often manufactured with fewer mechanical and
electronic parts, they are more reliable and easier to repair in the

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.
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
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.
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.
recognition of this change, A&D embarked on a comprehensive program
to provide a much wider product range, from basic low-cost products to

our global organization to meet 21st century standards.
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
core technology of analog and digital conversion enables us to
understand and utilize information within the environment. With this
competency, we provide tools using precision measurement and
controlling technology and assist customers to create added value and
contribute to the development of industry and healthy living.
