Detecto Scale Company was started in 1900 in New York City by three immigrant brothers (The Jacobs Brothers) in the butcher supply business. The company produced bakers’ dough scales, butchers’ scales, clinical scales, counter scales and hanging scales.
In 1981 the company was acquired by Cardinal Scale Manufacturing Company based in Webb City, Missouri where it’s corporate offices and manufacturing facilities are still located today. Cardinal was a well-known name in the heavy-duty truck scale and floor scale market, so the acquisition was a good fit to give the company a complete line-up of scales across a broad spectrum of markets.
Cardinal/Detecto is still at home in the small community of Webb City, Missouri, a city nestled on the edge of the Ozark mountains, with a population of just under 10,000. All around are wide, open prairies, hills and woods. Cardinal/Detecto employees like it that way and are committed to keeping it that way. Cardinal/Detecto’s mission statement promises that they will adhere to sound environmental practices. They do that and then some. Cardinal/Detecto’s goal is to always be a step ahead in observing sound environmental rules.
