For sixty years, we have worked to be an industry pioneer, providing our customers with superior scale systems to weigh, monitor, and control material throughout processing.

All Western Scale products from precision instruments to high capacity vehicle scales are manufactured at our Port Coquitlam factory.

Locally, our Sales Team's goal is to provide the best solutions to any customer application and budget. We will work with you to prioritize your weighing needs and find the right product, even if we don't manufacture it. Our Service Department installs, calibrates and repairs all types of scales for a growing number of customers in all industries. As a Measurement Canada Authorized Service Provider, we can also certify your weighing system "legal for trade".

Nationally, our Canadian Dealer Network is second to none with the country's best and most experienced scale companies selling and servicing Western products from coast to coast.

Western Scale Co. Limited is federally incorporated throughout Canada and is a wholly owned, privately held company.




In 1962, Western Scale Co. Limited was founded in Vancouver, British Columbia by David W. Frewin. From early roots as a 3 person venture (Mr. Frewin, his wife and one employee) the company grew steadily before moving to the Vancouver suburb of Port Coquitlam in 1974.

Having built up experience in process control systems, Western Scale adapted early as the weighing industry shifted towards electronics. Since the development of its first electronic indicators in 1976, WSCL has become Canada's leading manufacturer of industrial weighing instruments. Today, WSCL has evolved into a comprehensive operation, employing approximately 50 people in a 20,000 square foot manufacturing facility.




We are members of the International Society of Weighing & Measurement, the Grain Elevator & Processing Society, the National Conference on Weights and Measures (US), and the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.
