A&D Company, Limited 40th Anniversary Corporate Video


Measurement and sensor technology play an increasingly important role in business and science by connecting the analog and digital worlds. As a Japanese company that has been discovering precision since 1977, the A&D group is working to create the world’s most advanced technologies for measuring and analyzing critical data. A&D manufactures precision instruments. Precision is our business. Hikaru Furukawa started A&D with a small group of dedicated engineers and a passionate dream to pioneer breakthrough solutions. Under his leadership, A&D overcame numerous challenges and developed a passion for innovation. In its first decade, A&D began introducing sophisticated electronic circuitry together with advanced analog to digital conversion technology as a base for future innovation. From its humble beginnings in the suburbs of Tokyo, A&D today has grown to nearly 3,000 employees, 14 factories, 22 global subsidiaries, and more than 10,000 products spanning the healthcare, industrial, testing, research and automotive sectors. A&D products range from simple home health devices to some of the world’s most advanced measurement systems for transportation and aerospace. Our healthcare portfolio includes
blood pressure monitors, weight and height scales, nebulizers and thermometers
for both home and hospital use. We also design and manufacture load cells, indicators, scales, balances, checkweighers, tensile testers and data recorders, metal detectors and x-ray systems for labs, factories, research facilities and universities. A&D’s testing control and simulation systems provide highly advanced technical solutions for the automotive, electronics and chemical industries. A&D consistently invests more than 10%
of its annual revenues into R&D, giving us the strength and dynamism to create new solutions for a wide range of applications. Our primary R&D center near Tokyo employs more than 300 engineers, while our production facilities in Japan, China, Korea, Australia and Vietnam produce millions of measurement devices annually, each with an unparalleled commitment to quality, durability and ease of use. Outside of our base of operations in Japan, the A&D sales network has grown to include the Americas, Russia, the European Union, India, China, Australia, Korea, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
