We are the leading USA manufacturer of ELECTRONIC SCALES & WEIGHT/COUNT CONTROLS, including WEIGH COUNTING, WEIGHING PLATFORMS, DIGITAL WEIGHT OR COUNT INDICATORS, and OEM products.   We are associated with the Emery Winslow Scale Company, a USA manufacturer of large capacity and batching scales with a long respected history using unique Hydrostatic technology. 

The Pennsylvania Scale brand identity is built around long life, sustained accuracy, clean extra-rugged designs, and strong customer support.  Our products are supported by a large network of independent scale dealers and distributors.  Many Pennsylvania Scale products continue serving faithfully after 15-20 years and purchasers of our new products can expect a similar service life evidenced by our long Warranties which are the best in the industry! 
 
Electronics, bench scales, and floor scales are manufactured in our modern plant in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  Larger platforms are made in our corporate plant in Terre Haute, Indiana.  All Pennsylvania products are designed, manufactured, and supported by Pennsylvania Scale and ship NAFTA Free Trade to our Canada and Mexico business partners.

Pennsylvania's Governor Tom Corbett and State Senator Lloyd Smucker visited our facility for a tour and Press Event;

Shown in photo, L to R, are Ed Styer, Sean Livingston, Steven Kirsten, Sen. Smucker, Jay Baum, Rob Woodward, Barb Foulk,

Gov. Corbett, Kathy Hamilton, Alex Shirk, Ryan Mumma (IU student intern 'School to Work' program) and Rodney Smith. 

The Governor was impressed by the wide range of subcontractors that provide sheet metal, cables, PC boards, electronic components,

castings, steel fabrication, packaging, and other items-- the ripple effect of USA manufacturing jobs is wide and contributes to the tax revenue base.

 

Back in the early 1900's John Burkholder developed and patented a design for a springless mechanical scale where a ribbon was pulled accross a cam... a design which was innovative and widely copied at the time. In 1908 the company was established as the National Store Specialty Company on Lancaster Avenue in Lancaster, PA. The manufacturer was known for a line of gasoline pumps and scales using the ribbon and cam indicating method. The original building still stands in downtown Lancaster.
The first generation of 'Scalemen' take a break for the camera on the steps of the original building circa 1908. Despite lots of change over the years, some things stay the same: Our commitment to quality, honest value, and integrity form the basis for the Pennsylvania Scale brand.
In 1911 the growing company moved to a large industrial building in Leola which was occupied until several years ago. Our C-200 Counting scale became the standard of the industry and many models like our D-10 and DC-8 continue in wide use.
The early '70s brought the first electronic counting scales; our designs were widely known as highly accurate and durable-- many first generation units continue dependable service even today. Our distributors have stocks of our scales for short term rentals for physical inventories and special projects.
Today we manufacture the industry's best parts counting scales, all with the reliability and innovation to provide long life and sustained accuracy. Our electronic scales are highly respected by customers and technicians too! We take pride in being dealer and customer friendly and that the Pennsylvania Scale brand is consistent with our core values today even as our technology continues to lead the industry.
Practical Innovation - Design Elegance...
Count on Pennsylvania Scale for the best innovations and user-friendly improvements.
