Founded in 1971 as Metro Scale, MWA's principles were developed and etched into the company from the start. Starting out as a scale sales and service company, MWA realized the importance of working with customers and becoming a partner in improving their operations. This team effort approach has played a role in virtually all of MWA's innovations.
In 1980, MWA introduced the first automatic Furnace Loading System using scales and vibratory feeders. This new approach to loading a belt furnace was quickly adopted by the heat treat industry. As a result, MWA has replaced and/or upgraded most of the existing furnace loading equipment across North America.
In 1990, MWA partnered with an existing company to improve their packaging operation. The end result was MWA's first Packaging System, controlled by a user-friendly industrial PC interface. In an effort to provide better products and services, MWA began selling and integrating carton erecting, carton sealing, labeling, barcode scanning, palletizing, and stretch wrapping products. This made MWA a one-stop shop for packaging equipment, including integration and service.
In 2001, MWA introduced iPack™ to control their full line of automatic linear Filling Systems. This innovative control system allowed MWA's Filling Systems to reach a new level of efficiency and productivity. It also opened up a market to enhance existing Filling Systems by simply upgrading the control system.
Today, Metro Weighing & Automation continues to put their capabilities to work in finding solutions to a vast array of problems. Housed in a new 25,000 sq. ft. facility in Taylor, Michigan, MWA is a fully integrated company with in-house engineering, fabrication, electrical design, and software development capabilities.
