Cardinal Scale acquires Belt-Way Scales
Cardinal Scale has acquired Belt-Way Scales, one of the industry's leading conveyor belt scale manufacturers, based in Rock Falls, IL.
Belt-Way Scales has a partner network that spans multiple continents and 34 countries and has been manufacturing conveyor belt scales since 1992. The acquisition adds an additional product line to Cardinal Scale's variety of scales and weighing equipment.
"We are extremely excited about our acquisition of Belt-Way Scales, since it fills a gap in our product offerings and complements our overall weighing systems manufacturing strategy. They are known for manufacturing great products and delivering unmatched customer service. They will fit nicely into the Cardinal/DETECTO family and help round out our product lines," said Matthew Stovern, Cardinal Scale President. "We look forward to continuing Belt-Way Scales' long history of manufacturing high-quality conveyor belt scales and production data solutions."
Belt-Way Scales' employees, operations, and manufacturing will remain in Rock Falls, IL and continue with their own dedicated engineering, technical service, and manufacturing departments.

This is still the case for much of our scrap steel, but recently the growing trend toward containerization has introduced new opportunities for efficient, cost-effective shipping of both non-ferrous and ferrous materials to overseas markets.
