Adam Equipment, a global manufacturer of scales and balances, recently announced that the company has been accepted as a member of the GREAT British Business Club (GBBC). The club provides membership networking opportunities for British companies with offices in the New York area.

GBBC is a part of UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), the U.K. government department aimed at promoting U.K.-based businesses around the world. The benefits provided by GBBC membership are numerous, according to Tom Storey, president of Adam Equipment, Inc. and director of global marketing.

"Adam has sold professional weighing equipment in the United States since 1990," Storey said. "During that time, we firmly established a distribution channel to facilitate growth throughout North America and Latin America. This new partnership with UK Trade & Investment through the GBBC boosts our ability to reach even further into these regions," he added.

With a focus on building British brands in New York, GBBC helps enable introductions, cross-referrals and partnerships in the community. The club shares information with members on doing business in the United States, and offers suggestions on business development across the United States.
