OHAUS first opened its doors in Newark, New Jersey, in 1907 as a small scale repair business and has established itself as a trusted supplier of precise and reliable balances and scales. The company continues to build upon their century-old knowledge of the industry by incorporating the newest technology and advancements necessary to continually improve products to ensure they constantly meet market needs.
The company’s global leadership in the weighing industry is attributed to four principles that guide the way they conduct business - the OHAUS Advantage.
