Southwestern Scale Company Inc. announces it has opened a new office in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex to boost efficiency and services to the Lone Star State. The Phoenix-born business is in its seventy-fifth year and has been a major player in the American Southwest scale industry for decades.

Mark Murdza, chief business development officer, says that the expansion is a significant step for the company: “Opening operations in Texas is a momentous occasion for Southwestern Scale. We have invested tremendous time and effort into strengthening our business model, culture, and presence in the markets and it was time to share that with the great state of Texas.”

The Fort Worth-based office will be managed by Shane Irvin, one of the operation’s newest employees. On joining the business in this new capacity, Irvin remarks, “I couldn’t be more excited to be part of the Southwestern Scale team as we open our new location in Fort Worth, Texas.” He added, “We look forward to providing people in the Lone Star State with solutions to their weighing applications for decades to come.”

Last year, the company announced that it had been recognized as one of only twelve small businesses across the state of Arizona to be recognized as SHARP (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program) certified.
