Our Company

However, Mr. Riehl saw the need for an independent scale company that could service a wide range of weighing equipment at a better price. He believed in offering customers quality products and service with exceptional response time and competitive rates.
When American Scale started there were only 2 employees, but with the addition of two hard working brothers, Don and Dan Peters, Harry built a company that even the big guys would have to reckon with. Incorporated in 1953, Harry continued to lead the company until 1975 when he turned the reins over to Don and Dan.
