Our global leadership in the weighing industry is attributed to four principles that guide the way we conduct business - the OHAUS Advantage. These four principles lead us to fulfill our commitment to meeting our customer's expectations and achieve excellence in every aspect of our business.

Heritage & History

We first opened our doors in Newark, New Jersey, in 1907 as a small scale repair business and have established ourselves as a trusted supplier of precise and reliable balances and scales. We continue to build upon our century-old knowledge of the industry by incorporating the newest technology and advancements necessary to continually improve our products to ensure they constantly meet market needs.

Our years of operation devoted exclusively to the weighing industry have been marked by advancements and achievements that have propelled us to the next level of success. From the introduction of the Harvard Trip Balance, which quickly became the standard by which other mechanical balances are judged, to the introduction of the Explorer line of analytical and precision balances, the most advanced and intuitive product to ever come from OHAUS, we have the long-standing experience necessary to deliver high-quality and durable weighing instruments.
