Rent from the Original

A Brief history, with the advent of WW II, and materials of all types in short supply, Johnson Scale Company pioneered the idea of renting scales for inventories. During the war, our founder improvised, by converting all sorts of existing scale equipment for parts counting, to meet the burgeoning industrial demand of our customer’s and even supplying other distributors with his converted scales to meet their customer’s industrial demand. It is that type of dedication and innovation that still drives our company today. Amazingly some of our original customers from long ago are still our rental customer’s today
