Company at a Glance

Do you remember the last time you discovered a new piece of equipment and thought “Now that’s clever! That’s exactly what I need”. That is the kind of feeling that the designers at Rinstrum strive for with every product.

With our global distribution network, we get extensive feedback on exactly what you need. Our team devotes time, experience and skill to convert this insight into weighing products that are truly innovative and a pleasure to own and operate.

This is what our ‘Smart Weighing’ philosophy is all about. Not design for design sake but innovative design that delivers products that are easy to install, operate and maintain; are reliable and affordable; and make you proud to use in your business.
