Tuscaloosa Scale Company – Alabama

Founding History

Some of the first recordings of scales and weighing devices are found in the Bible. Although not quite as old as Moses, Kevin Charlton began working in the scale industry in 1979 at Aarrow Scale Company. There he began to acquire his foundation of skill and knowledge in scale maintenance. Kevin traveled the state and worked with many customers in a variety of industries and utilized applications that helped his customers improve their material weighing.
