About A&D

A Brief Introduction | Specialists in Australian Weighing Equipment & Inspection Systems

The story of A&D Weighing goes right back to 1946, when Mercury Scales was first founded in Adelaide.

From these humble beginnings the business experienced rapid growth, leading to its joining with A&D’s global organisation and evolving into A&D Mercury. Today, A&D Weighing is an Australian leader in the supply of electronic weighing scales, balances, metal detectors, checkweighers and weighing systems, with the A&D Weighing name proudly representing the business unit of A&D Australasia.

While A&D may not be a household name, the chances are that every Australian adult has encountered our weighing equipment at some point in their life. We’re proud to have built and calibrated scales that can be found in Australia Post stores all over the country, providing accurate measurements for the postal sector. With a long local history, A&D weighing instruments can also be found in many Australian factories, warehouses and laboratories.
