An ISO Certified UK Manufacturer

SGS_ISO-9001ex_with_UKAS_TCWhere other companies have moved their manufacturing abroad, AWM Limited is proud to still manufacture the VW range of industrial platform scales here in the UK. The VW range is highly regarded for its quality and reliability – a result of over 25 years of experience in design and manufacturing. We were one of the first independent weighing scales companies to obtain ISO Certification and our ISO 9001:2008 registration ensures that all of our weighing systems are manufactured to strict quality standards. All of our products are fully QA tested and calibrated by our highly trained engineers and professionally packaged before despatch. For trade customers, we can ship direct to your customers on your paperwork as required.

Self Verification

mWe are NAWI certified for Self Verification of EC trade approved weighing machines – we were one of the first independent weighing companies to obtain this certification. For distributors who export, as part of our verification process we make the required gravity adjustments here in the UK to ensure the scale meets all accuracy requirements in the country of use. For our established distributors we also offer our “Outsourced Verifiers” course which allows you to verify Class III scales under our ISO system.
