  • Our History

    A&D's History

    A&D Technology was founded in 2005 as an American subsidiary of A&D Company, Ltd., a global manufacturer of testing and measurement equipment with headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. The purpose was to bring A&D Company's testing and measurement expertise into the automotive engine and powertrain development market.

    Recognizing the need for an organization with experience in engine and powertrain test cell integration, A&D Technology then purchased the former Powertrain Technology Division of MTS Systems. Together these two companies have over 30 years of experience in designing, implementing and supporting engine test cells.
