Leonard T. Johnson, who entered the scale industry in 1897, founded Johnson Scale Company. He apprenticed with the leading scale manufacturers of the day before striking out on his own. A salesman by trade but an inventor at heart, his goal was to produce and distribute retail, cylinder and fan scales of his own design. Len acquired a number of patents, and after an attempt to start a manufacturing firm was aborted by the death of a business partner, he began selling and servicing scales and store equipment out of an office in Newark, New Jersey. The Johnson Scale Company was born. Johnson Scale Co., now in the third generation of family leadership, with over a century of experience in our industry, takes pride in the reputation we have built through our commitment to quality of product and customer service. Johnson Scale, is here to serve all of your scale, weighing, force measurement, material testing, and scale inspection, calibration, service and scale rental needs!
