"associated with" = in some way connected and ambiguous, could be direct business relations or otherwise but in your context I'm pretty sure it refers to business

agree  Helga Woggon, Dr. phil.: Es ist wohl bewusst vage ausgedrückt , darum eher ohne "geschäftlich". Es ging mir nur um Olafs Frage nach den Unterschieden in den Formulierungen. Ich würde den Satz leicht umstellen: Ich freue mich, mit ihnen in .... Verbindung zu stehen.

  -> danke Helga und "geschäftlich" ist nicht unbedingt nötig

agree  Steffen Walter: "Geschäftlich" würde ich hier allerdings weglassen, da ja danach noch die Antwort "I plan to continue to do business with them" folgt.
