About NISA

In 1987, the National Industrial Scale Association was officially formed to support the heavy capacity weighing industry. Until that time, there was no forum for scale users, manufacturers, regulatory agencies and other interested groups to obtain or share information on a purely technical level.

NISA is a highly respected professional association dedicated to serving the heavy capacity weighing industry. As a non-profit organization, NISA is supported by membership dues, member-company sponsorship, and conference attendance fees. NISA’s officers and board directors are volunteers from within the membership who strive diligently to facilitate communication, innovation and networking.

NISA can help you perform your scale-related job better by providing you with the personal contacts and specific information you need.
