Walz Scale (United States)


Our business was founded in 1966, by President Matt Walz’s grandfather, Fred L. Walz. The business began as a dealership for the foodservice industry, selling scales and services to grocery stores. Now in its third generation of ownership, over 50 years later, Walz Scale continues to be a family-owned and operated business. While the company maintains headquarters in Central Illinois, the business now has a global presence, with depots, partners, and dealers worldwide. What started as a small independent scale sales and service organization, is now is a world-class provider of almost every type of weighing equipment. Walz Scale provides weighing solutions with the latest technology to many industries, including transportation, agriculture, chemical, laboratory, aggregate, waste, recycling, and mining applications.

As our customer base has grown, we have grown with them by providing the latest technology to meet their unique applications. Today, thousands of businesses across the globe rely on Walz Scale for their measurement needs.


Many operations rely on accurately measured and recorded weight data, especially when moving large amounts of product or materials. Walz offers a wide range of onboard weighing systems designed for use by lift trucks, skid steer loaders, wheel loaders, dump trucks, and more. These onboard scales are available in entry-level tiers, as well as advanced models with several innovative features. These onboard scale systems use a hydraulic sensor to measure the resistance of whatever the truck is carrying, collecting accurate weight data in real-time.


Volumetric load scanning is a relatively new weight measuring system technology that is providing exciting opportunities for applications spanning the spectrum of industry. Walz Scale is proud to have set the industry standard for this new technology, as it changes the way that construction, mining, industrial, or agricultural applications approach payload management. It is a revolutionary approach to payload management, and it has been developed to provide an affordable solution to customers demanding minimum setup costs and reduces maintenance costs. For open-top applications, rather than depending on a traditional truck scale, a volumetric scanner measures the bulk material that is loaded in a truck using 3D imaging software. This innovative system is able to provide automatic volume calculations of loaded trucks Walz has pioneered this payload management technology, and now is the industry standard for volumetric scanning processes.


For decades, Walz has emphasized the importance of relationships in providing superior customer service. As a family business, there isn’t a challenge we’ve faced that we haven’t been able to overcome and wind up stronger in the end because of it. For all of your scale and volumetric scanning needs, regardless of your industry or business size, we have the solution for you to keep your trucks in motion and doors open.

At the end of the day, there’s no question — you deserve products and services from a company that knows how to look forward to the future, continues to innovate, and provides world-class customer service.
