One-stop service

Working with one weighing partner can help to drive efficiencies in time and cost. At Northern Balance, we have the competence to calibrate, test, maintain, supply and install hundreds of makes and models of weighing equipment for laboratory and industrial applications and processes. As your single point of weighing support, we can quickly identify and diagnose issues across your entire weighing process to enhance operational efficiency, increase flexibility while improving productivity.

Fast and reliable support

When weighing is critical to your processes, fast and reliable weighing support is essential to reducing downtime and ensuring compliance for audits. With speed and convenience in mind, we can despatch local engineers across the UK on the same day as your request*. When time is of the essence for accessing certification and tests, you can rest assured that complimentary, on-demand paperwork is available 24/7 via our online asset management system.

Customer-first approach

We understand that your operating and regulatory requirements are unique, and a standard solution is not always fit for purpose. That’s why we offer a personalised programme of standalone or turnkey support where our services fit your environment, schedules and budgets. From complimentary servicing and adjustments for calibrations, customisable tiers of preventative maintenance programmes to full site assessments to ensure best-fit solutions, we provide bespoke access to weighing support how and when you need it.
