It is with sadness we announce the passing of our company Patriarch, Walter M. Young this morning surrounded by close family. In his 40 years in the weighing industry, Walter put together a legacy that includes the Emery Winslow Scale Company and more recently ownership of Pennsylvania Scale company. He was 94 years old and until only recently was a daily presence at the Seymour CT facility.
When his obituary and funeral arrangements are available, we’ll pass that along as well.
THANKS & REGARDS,
Rob Woodward – VP/GM

We have arrived at a very unique time in the world, one in which the uniqueness of every new thing quickly fades as a newer thing replaces it. Technology is exploding at a rate we’ve never before seen or even thought possible, and there are so many benefits that have come from this sudden eruption of technological advancement. No looking back—the boomer phone booth and flip phone went the way of the dinosaur. Today, with a handheld phone or tablet, I can perform a Google search from anywhere in order to find out what restaurants are nearby. I no longer need to deal with...

We’ve all been there before—you see a product or service roll-out on its debut and you say, “that was my idea,” yada yada yada, “I had that idea years ago.” Well guess what—they win and you loose. There’s no recourse. You may as well whack yourself in the forehead like that old V-8 commercial, which by the way was a great idea!

In 2015, the dimensional weight rules changed for carriers, such as FedEx and UPS, which did not previously charge for a parcel’s dimensional weight. No matter the size, parcels were billed based on actual weight. If a company shipped an irregular size parcel weighing almost nothing, yet occupied a large space on a carrier’s vehicle, their shipping costs were as low as your smaller sized package weighing the same....

In an ever growing and expanding global economy, it is no surprise that certain provisions and regulations had to be established during the last several decades in order to not only promote international trade and business prospects, but to also ensure that a balance of safety and other related concerns are implemented and adhered to with due diligence. Over the years, this has also raised questions and evaluations about how large shipment and cargo containers are handled and controlled in seafaring environments. . . .
There is a saying that “innovation is one part idea and nine parts hard work”. In engineering that can be expressed as “one part need and nine parts hard work.” It was a clearly expressed need that led the ANYLOAD to recently develop an innovative shear beam foot 500kg load cell. Larger load cells of this type are relatively easy to produce as the weight that causes elastic deformation of the load cell can be designed to any size and length so long as the engineering is precise...

This past February my wife and I attended the International Society of Weighing and Measurement (ISWM) 2016 Conference and Expo. The event marked a Century of helping the Scale Equipment Dealer.
It wasn’t a surprise, unfortunately, that those who the association was created for didn’t support it with their attendance. The small percentage of dealers that did show up, however, were welcomed with the full attention of the manufacturers. Those dealers enjoyed a great event...

There has never been a more powerful marketing medium for businesses than Facebook. What makes it so special, according to Bob Bentz, president of Purplegator, a mobile marketing agency in suburban Philadelphia, is its ability to laser target an audience based on geography, demographics and interests.
