Nordson: This scale has been at Nordson for at least fifty years and used primarily on the shipping and receiving dock to weigh finished goods going out to customers. In the 90's a second shipping dock was built in our downstairs factory to allow our large automotive parts that we relocated from another building. So, for the last 25-30 years the Yale scale has been used by "health conscious" employees wanting to weigh themselves.
It now resides in the lobby of the Amherst Historical Society. It has a weight capacity of 500 lbs. Come in and take a look or get a weigh... 😉
