Keep Moving Forward

Sidewinder

“The greatest thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Forward has always been the direction for Southwestern Scale. With a clearly defined vision and goals, combined with an awesome team and company culture, there is nothing we cannot accomplish.

This year we have accomplished many additional improvements to our property, including the addition of our own on-site Sidewinder truck scale at the exit point of our yard, complete with a digital indicator and guard rails. Resurfacing has been ongoing by our in-house construction team and nearly complete. The new concrete is needed to house our growing fleet of trucks and allow us to open our painting area to increase scale manufacturing capacity. The new yard finish also gives us the flat, level surface needed for effective and efficient on-board scale calibrations.  We welcomed Barbie the Welder in early January who custom-designed metal “landscaping” for the front of our building. As a finishing touch, we added mini-Sidewinders to the front of the parking lot and directly in front of the building. 

In addition to the above property improvements, Manufacturing has added a new saw for cutting steel and a CNC plasma cutting table, built in-house by our talented employees, for cutting complex shapes and geometries. Both additions help in improving quality and efficiency. And finally, a new addition to the family arrived a few weeks ago. Welcome to our 6th heavy capacity test truck “48” in the fleet. “48” has sentimental value referencing our founding in 1948.  Number “48” assures capacity and availability to service our customers because our ultimate success is based on our customers. Without you, there would be no us. Thank you for your business and continued support! Follow us on social media for a full “family photo” coming soon!
