MOBILE NTEP SCALES
DETECTO is founded in 1900 in Brooklyn, New York by three immigrant brothers, the Jacobs Brothers. The Jacobs brothers were exceptional at building and repairing foodservice scales.
William H. Perry starts Cardinal Scale in his garage located in his hometown of Webb City, Missouri. WH Perry was an experienced scale industry man and founded the new company as a result of customer needs for a line of special-capacity scales.
Cardinal Scale acquired DETECTO, founded in New York City in 1900, which specialized in manufacturing bakers dough scales, butcher’s scales, doctor scales, hanging scales and portion scales. This acquisition brought an important new dimension to Cardinal Scale, lower capacity foodservice and healthcare scales.
Cardinal/Detecto releases an all-new complete line of solo, apex, and icon brand eye-level physician scales offering a wide range of revolutionary new features, including digital sonar height rods and thin, flat platforms.
Cardinal/Detecto has dealers in 110 countries around the world and the company has shipped products into 150 countries. We are always interested in visiting with new distributors, so please contact us if you are in the scale distribution business.
