Some things don't change:  Our people make the difference... 
 
...A unique pride; a satisfaction in doing things well and building things with quality and longevity and supporting our customers.  Loyalty to an ideal vision of how things should be done... 
 
Not just the same as everybody else-- better; longer life; least life cost !

(R) Skid of MS floor scales, ramps, and indicators headed for the dock-- Sensortronics (tm) load cells-equipped!  Corners precisely calibrated.  Pride and workmanship are included with every scale product we ship.
 
More than a product line, Pennsylvania Scale is a way of life!
Enjoy these pictures as much as we enjoy sharing them; they proudly represent a highly focused brand and way of doing business, building products, and competing every day...

Larger floor scales are manufactured at Emery Winslow's huge plant in Terre Haute, IN
where they also make truck and railroad track scales using Emery's 'Hydrostatic' sensors.

Check out the workmanship that went into these early (circa 1911) fan-type scales made by Pennsylvania Scale in the early days! 
It was common at the time to custom make products under other manufacturers' names-- for example Jacobs Brothers Scales. 
The beautiful blue unit at bottom was a premium for the 'Walla-Walla Gum Company' and provided to retail penny candy stores
as a premium to promote the sale of penny candy. 
 There is a growing interest in antique scales and memorabilia, example: the International Scale Society.  Photos provided by Mr. Marty Miller, a collector.
