Paulo Scales

Since 1910 at the service of weighing

PAULO Balanças, headquartered in Braga, Portugal, has been manufacturing and marketing scales and weighing systems since 1910, when the former “Fábrica do Paulo” was created.

In the first decades of its existence, the company accumulated a vast experience in the field of mechanical weighing, through the manufacture of its own line of traditional and automatic scales.

The innovative and visionary spirit of the company’s owners boosted entry into the field of electronic weighing in the early eighties, when the large-scale production and assembly of the Pesa-Camões weighbridge began, equipment that remains today as a reference in various sectors of activity.
