Scales Should be A-1

Scales are like cash registers.

With every weigh you’re either losing money or making it. In retail you give it away or steal it, and a misplaced milligram in the lab can throw off ten kilograms of product. Our team ensures that you’re neither oversold or undersold.

Wrong scales at the right time can really hurt.

We have the stock, expertise, and technicians to set you up with the right scale, keep it maintained, and satisfy legislative whims. Choosing A-1 means smooth, reliable setups and production up-time. If there’s a problem at 2am your nightshift manager has someone to call. Every time.

As long as you’re weighing molecules, we have just the thing.

With over 40 years in the industry, there are very few rodeos we haven’t been to… and we’re hoping to remedy that. We do just about everything, and if you look for our logo in the Portland area you might be surprised at how many businesses trust our scales to keep them up and running.

Bench Scales
