An ISO Certified UK Manufacturer

Where other companies have moved their manufacturing abroad, we are proud to still manufacture our VW range of industrial platform scales here in the UK. The VW range is trusted by weighing professionals worldwide and is highly regarded for its quality and reliability - a result of more than 25 years experience in design and manufacturing. We were one of the first independent weighing scales companies to obtain ISO Certification and our ISO registration ensures that all of our weighing systems are manufactured to strict quality standards. Our products are fully QA tested and calibrated by our highly trained engineers before being professionally packaged ready for despatch. 

Self Verification

We are NAWI certified for Self Verification of EC trade approved weighing machines and 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 Verification course which allows you to verify Class III scales under our ISO system.
