About Bitterman Scales
Bitterman Scales helps its clients find dependable weighing solutions. It begins with consulting with clients about their weighing needs, and then prescribing, selling, installing, calibrating, maintaining, troubleshooting, and repairing scales and weighing systems to fit those needs. Calibration reports, certification letters, and other documentation can be provided to comply with each client’s commercial (Handbook 44) and/or industrial scale requirements (e.g., ISO 9001 or 17025, PennDOT, AASHTO).
Bitterman Scales specializes in Motor Truck Vehicle & Heavy Capacity Scales, Tank & Hopper weighing systems, and providing weights for load strain tests. It offers the largest inventory of certified, NIST Traceable test weights of any scale company in Pennsylvania, and is able to provide over 100,000 lbs of certified test weights for load tests on crane and hoist strain testing.
Bittermanscales.com features a sampling of scales that are easily shipped directly to online clients. Web customers can talk with a weighing professional to find the proper scale(s) to meet their needs and then receive it via UPS, FedEx, or common carrier freight. Most of these items are currently in stock at one or more Bitterman-associated distribution centers across the United States and, in most cases, can ship “same day” or “next day.”
The Bitterman family of scale technicians has been serving Lancaster County and central Pennsylvania businesses since 1961; that’s when Chet Bitterman left Pennsylvania Scale Company, a national scale manufacturer, to establish a local scale calibration and service company. The business was later sold to Chet’s three sons, Curt, Craig, and Grant, who grew up in the scale business, and, since 2005, operate the business as an LLC.
