Clear Choice for Scale Service

Choosing a Scale Service Provider

In Upstate New York, a number of weighing equipment companies provide repair and calibration services. Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse all have several scale companies that can provide these services. So, you might be asking yourself: Why should I choose Brady Systems to service and calibrate my scales? Aren’t they the same as everyone else? Is there really a difference between companies? What makes one better than another?


Brady Systems has a long history in the weighing industry. As of 2023, we have been in business for 68 years. Our 4 offices in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, and Binghamton originally started out as Toledo Scale sales and service offices. When Toledo Scale decided to move to a distribution model, Brady Systems, then known as J. B. Brady, was formed. Since then, Brady Systems has been the only authorized METTLER TOLEDO distributor for the area. Our relationship with METTLER TOLEDO gives our technicians a level of experience that, in turn, brings customers the highest level of service support expected from the METTLER TOLEDO product line.

In addition to being an authorized METTLER TOLEDO distributor, we are also an authorized OHAUS distributor. We provide warranty repair services on both product lines.


Scale Service

Brady Systems Heavy Capacity Test Truck

The tools of the trade for any weighing service provider are its weights. Brady Systems has over 32,000 lbs. in test weights. The weights range in size from 1mg up to 1,000 lb. blocks. Weight classes are from OIML Class 0 to NIST Class F weights. All weights are tested on a fixed schedule, based on class, at a certified laboratory and are NIST traceable. Our heavy-duty test truck carries 20,000 lbs. in weight with a 5,000 lb. certified test cart.

With these tools, we are capable and qualified to service and calibrate lab balances to large vehicle scales.


Scale Service

Technician testing a scale

The most important part of any company is its people. And as the most important part of our company, we invest in our Technicians so we can provide you with the highest level of service available. All Technicians are factory trained and cross-trained in all products we service. You can read more about our training program here. Our average Technician has 10 + years of experience.

Our Technicians live and work in your area. Brady Systems has 13 technicians located in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, and Binghamton. Having local Technicians, we can get to you much quicker. Having a large number of Technicians means that if the local Technician is busy on a job, another Technician will be brought in so that you don’t have to wait. And, we don’t charge you extra for an out-of-area Technician. You pay the same price as if they were local, regardless of where the Technician came from.
