Trade associations are organizations founded and funded by businesses that operate in a specific industry, such as weighing or scales and balances. Funded by contributions made by the member companies, trade associations participate in public relations activities such as advertising, networking, conferences, charitable events, education, lobbying and publishing, but their main purpose is collaboration between companies. Many associations are non-profit, governed by bylaws and directed by officers who are also members. In many instances, a trade organization is set up as a non-profit organization.

This type of business organization makes it possible for companies involved in the same industry to work together on issues of common concern. To a certain extent, a trade organization helps to protect the integrity of an industry, in that it normally sets standards that all members must abide by in order to be considered in good standing.

Adam Equipment is a proud member of several industry associations. Memberships are chosen by both an ambition to work within those markets, as well as a desire to learn new and better ways to serve our customers.
