Global specialist weighing company Precia-Molen completed the acquisition of Shering Weighing, based in Dunfermline, County Fife, Scotland.
Founded in 1946, Shering Weighing is a well knowbrand in the UK weighbridge market, having a long tradition of quality, technology and innovation.
In recent years the company has gained a growing reputation in some export markets for weighbridges and driver operated systems, enjoying a large client base comprising product sales and maintenance contracts in both export and domestic markets.
Precia-Molen is well positioned to deliver weighing solutions anywhere in the world with operating companies in ten European countries as well as international operations in Brazil, Australia, India, Malaysia and Morocco supported by a network of agents/distributors. Specialising in both static and dynamic weighing across a broad spectrum of industry has earned them an enviable reputation for innovation and quality at the forefront of weighing technology.
Rene Colombel, chairman and managing director of the Precia-Molen Group, said “This exciting acquisition forms part of the group’s strategic development to grow the business globally. Both companies share strong family values and this synergy makes Shering a perfect fit for our business.”
Established in the UK in 1966, Precia-Molen UK is located in Redditch, County Worcestershire, England, where a UK-wide sales and service operation is delivered.
John Swinburne, managing director of Precia-Molen UK, said: “The acquisition of Shering Weighing will benefit its customers by providing an increased product portfolio, particularly dynamic weighing and vessel weighing products, to satisfy a wide range of weighing solutions. Additionally, an increased service resource will enable us to deliver enhanced levels of service to both Precia-Molen and Shering Weighing customers.”
