About us

Scotland’s oldest family firm
The amazing story of John White & Son (JWS) began in 1715 when blacksmith John White made a “particularly fine” Dutch-end scale. After eight generations of change and innovation, the family business is on the threshold of a new exciting future.
Recognised for our expertise, JWS participated in the Calibration Working Group that drew up the Code of Practice that sets the standards in the industry for the calibration of industrial weighing equipment. Our highly skilled engineers are experienced in all aspects of weighing. Whether through entering new markets or adding new products and services to our extensive portfolio, we are continually seeking to expand and develop our offering to meet customers’ existing and future needs.
