Sustainable commitment inspires 50th Birthday Celebrations

Mar 23 2022

A worldwide programme of tree planting and special product offers will mark the 50th anniversary of leading weighing scale and balance manufacturer Adam Equipment.

Founded in the UK in 1972, the company manufacture and sell precision and analytical balances to laboratories around the world, with offices in the US, Germany, South Africa, Australia and China.

Having begun life as a small family business selling and repairing weighing scales, Adam Equipment began manufacturing its own weighing scales in the 1980s. Today, Adam Equipment is owned by Sweden-based international technology and industrial group Indutrade AB – and there are over 400 weighing devices and accessories in the company’s range.

Throughout 2022, the Adam offices will run a series of special product offers – and, to reflect the company’s commitment to sustainable growth, aims to plant 500 trees in every country where it has an office.

Managing Director Richard Storey said: “Adam Equipment has always been about quality, rather than being the cheapest you can buy. We have always aimed to provide products that give many years of service – rather than cheap scales that last a year or two and are then thrown away. Not only does this offer better value for money – it’s better for the planet, too. I believe that this has been the key to our success - because customers trust our products.

“2022 is certainly a significant celebration for us, but our intention is to look toward the future as much as celebrating the past. More than ever, we are committed to producing high quality, long-lasting products – and continuously bettering sustainable manufacturing processes.”

Adam Equipment’s range includes the Equinox, Solis and Luna ranges of analytical and precision laboratory balances and the easy to use HCB Precision Balance equally popular with laboratories and schools.
