About Doran Scales, Inc.
It started in 1976 with a better idea
In 1976, as microprocessor technology was revolutionizing the electronics industry, the originators of the Doran scale design began manufacturing a highly specialized electronic laboratory grain scale. Sold under a private label, the device met the exacting requirements of the National Bureau of Standards and was approved for use by USDA/FGIS grain inspectors. This success led to the development of the first series of industrial electronic scales manufactured and marketed under the Doran Scales name.
These scales, the Doran 4100 Over/Under Series, were designed to perform with repeatable accuracy in the hostile washdown environments found in the food processing industry. The Doran 4100 gained immediate recognition for its speed, durability, and ease of use—a reputation still growing as the industry's leading stainless steel scale.
The single most instrumental factor that established Doran's strong position in a market previously dominated by a handful of old, established scale manufacturers was a deceptively simple idea: "Provide the best customer service in the industry."
Every customer is treated as if he or she were our only customer. That focus accounts for our policy of shipping stock scales the same day they are ordered. It accounts for our two-year warranty covering both parts and labor. It is why we do so much repeat business with our satisfied customers.
Adaptability Keeps Us Growing
By design, we offer the industry's most varied selection of "off-the-shelf" options. Our wide-range of tower heights, platform sizes, custom indicators, user-programmable options, and software makes it possible to put a Doran scale to work in almost any industrial or commercial application without special engineering.
Next time you need a new or replacement scale for any weighing application—from .0002 lb to 1000 lb—or for special tasks such as checkweighing, batching, or grading, call your Doran dealer. They'll show you how easily and cost effectively a Doran scale will fit, including remote applications requiring rechargeable battery power.
