We Offer Scale System Solutions

NEWS RELEASE: Kanawha Scales & Systems (KSS) is pleased to announce that, after several years of collaboration, the company has acquired the assets of Roanoke, Virginia-based Security Scale Service Company (SSS). Since 1971, SSS has supplied quality industrial weighing products and services to a wide range of well-established customers across Virginia and into Tennessee. Kanawha Scales & Systems is proud to join forces with this Virginia-based weighing industry leader.

Kanawha Scales now welcomes the addition of the five Security Scales locations. Roanoke, Virginia, serves as the main office for administrative, sales, and service staff. Two more sales and service offices are in Richmond and Suffolk, Virginia, and there are two service offices in Lynchburg, Virginia, and Blountville, Tennessee. While these offices will now officially be KSS operations, Kanawha will temporarily continue to operate these locations under the well-recognized and respected Security Scale Service name, eventually rebranding at these branches to the Kanawha Scales & Systems brand.
