Central Carolina Scale is at home in the small community of Sanford, North Carolina which is located about thirty minutes south of the state capital of Raleigh, North Carolina. This area is often considered one of the best areas in the country to live and work. The company headquarters are just a few hours away from the beach or the mountains, great universities and hospitals, lots of sporting events and outdoor life and many great businesses call this area home as well. It's one of the big reasons the company was founded in this area.
Central Carolina Scale, Inc was founded in 1980 by H. Wayne Lamberth. But the foundation of the business goes back much farther than that. After a successful tenure in the United States Air Force, Wayne started working for Howe Richardson Scales in Charlotte, NC in the early 1970's. After that, he partnered with his uncle, Johnny Whitaker to form a scale company north of Charlotte in the Statesville, NC region in the late 1970's.
After doing this for several years Wayne decided he wanted to move to central North Carolina and own his own business so he started Central Carolina Scale, Inc. The original building still exists but there have been four additions added over the years just to keep up with the growth of the company which provides sales, service, repairs, calibration and rental services.
Central Carolina Scale employees have over 90 years of combined experience in weighing equipment sales and service but even with all that experience, the staff still trains regularly via both on the job training and factory supplied training. This one of the reasons why Central Carolina Scale has firmly established itself as a leader in the scale industry. It's also one of the reasons that many of the top scale manufacturers in the United States like Rice Lake Weighing Systems, Cardinal Scale Manufacturing, Doran Scales, Intercomp, and Avery Weigh-Tronix rely on Central Carolina Scale to distribute and service their scale equipment.
It's worth mentioning though that Central Carolina Scale, Inc is an independent scale company which basically means that although the company does enjoy great relationships and support from scale suppliers like Rice Lake and Cardinal, but ultimately Central Carolina Scale is free to decide what item(s) are best suited for a particular customer. This is important because it means that the customer is provided with whichever manufacturer(s) or model(s) that the company feels is appropriate and not forced to look only at one manufacturer.
Facilities and equipment are wonderful resources.. but ultimately are of little value without the most important aspect of any business – its people. Central Carolina Scale is proud of its ability to attract top-notch people to its business. Over the years Central Carolina Scale has been fortunate in being able to employ many talented individuals with the willingness to develop their skills to the highest levels to recommend, repair, and provide quality weighing equipment to customers.
