The earliest known Christmas tree decorations were apples

Seems ironic as Apples are now one of the most popular gifts sitting under the tree!




Thank You For Your Support


We had our annual end of year BBQ and turned on a  stunning sunny day with scrumptious food and drinks to show our appreciation to our dealers and friends.


A collective THANKS to all for your support and investment in A&D throughout the year. We hope 2011 had plenty of highlights for you.


From the team at A&D, we wish you all the best for the festive season and best wishes for a BIG 2012!

Here are some snaps taken on the day


A&D Precision Scales selected for Automative QA


A&D?s GP series Industrial Precision Scale is being used to check the weight of individual engine components for a well known car manufacturer. Supplied by one of A&D?s Platinum Partners; Accuweigh, the A&D GP Precision High Capacity Balance is used as part of a strict Quality Control monitoring program.  The GP was selected by this high profile client for its ability to measure items up to 101kg capacity in increments as fine as 1g. This is possible due to A&D?s Double Leveraged Super Hybrid Sensor (SHS) which is the heart of this precision instrument, ensuring fast and accurate weighing results.


Additionally, the GP series includes automatic self calibration at the touch of a button, IP-65 protection against dust & water ingress, RS232 comms port and FREE data capture software. Additionally, the large Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) ensures clear weight readings under all lighting conditions. All these features also make the GP a popular choice in the harsh environs of the mining & cement sectors.

Another PARTNER Joins the 20+ years A&D family


Congrats to WA Scale Service on celebrating 20 years in the weighing industry.  Word has it that Mike Radalj has been mucking around with scales since he was knee high to a grasshopper and he?s still the same to this day, maybe just a little bit grumpier J.  Well done Mike on your hard work for  your service customer base in WA and across the country. We appreciate how you offer A&D products to customers because your reputation depends on having an Australian based, quality, reliable range of weighing instruments at your fingertips.  WA Scale Service join a long list of companies who have been proud to recommend and support A&D products for a similar period.  In this day and age of $50 ?scales? on eBay, it?s good to know that most buyers are astute enough to know that Quality, Accuracy & local backup are remembered, long after price is forgotten.


Is too much or too little moisture costing you money?
