About Us

About Us: Since 1946 Carlton Scale has been selling, servicing and calibrating all types of weighing instruments, scales and controls. Our product line ranges from analytical balances all the way up to railroad track scales and everything in between. We cover industries such as chemical, pharmaceutical, aggregates, agriculture, transportation, tobacco and food processing. Prompt service by competent and courteous service personnel is our primary focus. We like to think of ourselves as your local problem solver that you can reach out and touch.

Our company has grown into the largest Mettler-Toledo Distributor in North America. We have nine branches located in Charlotte, Greensboro, and Greenville, NC; Knoxville and Kingsport, TN; Roanoke, Richmond and Chesapeake, VA: and in Salisbury, MD including the entire Delmarva Peninsula and Delaware. This regional size gives our company distinct advantages over any competition due to the depth of personnel and access to equipment and parts.

Carlton Scale also has one of the largest systems integration groups in the scale business. We customize automated weighing systems, in-motion check weighers, data collection and transfer, PLC’s and custom software, and many more manufacturing systems for industry. We are also ISO-17025 accredited and can speak to your quality people in their own language.  You can learn even more about us at our WeighBetter Blog!
