Meet the Directors

David French

I started in the weighing industry in 1972 and have found it fascinating ever since. It has provided me with a wealth of experience in dealing with both standard and non standard weighing machines.

More importantly, it was obvious that what customers needed for their applications were not really being satisfied but being supplied with what was available. This is one of the main reasons I founded ADF; to supply 'the right scale for the job'. I am very pleased to say that this philosophy has not changed and we are still doing exactly that after 37 years.

Although I am more than happy to advise a customer on the use of a simple unit, I do tend to specialise on the bespoke scale systems that we build, which results in working with the extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic ADF team to provide the best options for the customer; ensuring they have a reliable, robust and accurate scale system.

It's pleasing to know that my forty six years of weighing scale knowledge is still being put to good use!

As a sales director with 23 years experience in weighing equipment, I’m here to give the best advice on the most suitable scale or system that is cost effective to suit the customer’s needs.   

Faulty weighing equipment can be very detrimental to profit margins so accuracy and reliability along with regular service and calibration is vital to production, thus saving the customer money.

Give ADF a call - what’s it going to cost you?

I first started working for ADF 18 years ago; my knowledge and experience has been building year by year and I now have a considerable understanding of weighing scales. 

In December 2014, I became a Director of the company so I now look after the day-to-day running of the administration and service planning - along with some of the sales. Every day is busy and hectic and I love it. Ensuring our customers have the best possible experience is top on my list of priorities; when I receive customer feedback stating that they are happy with the service we have provided it ensures we're on the right track.

Outside of work, I can be found enjoying family life with my husband, two children and our dog, Nuz - never a dull moment!
