Manufacturing and operations will continue at Measurement Systems International.
Rice Lake Weighing Systems, Rice Lake, Wis., has purchased Measurement Systems International (MSI), a scale equipment manufacturer based in Seattle.
MSI has been in business in business since 1977 with niche technologies such as crane scales and aircraft load monitors. Rice Lake says it plans to keep MSI's manufacturing and operations, including all current employees, at its current location and use the business’ customer base and product lines to supplement Rice Lake’s existing catalog and clientele.
Rice Lake says its purchase of MSI is a strategic move designed to grow the portions of its business that are currently underserved.
According to Rice Lake Vice President Mark Johnson Jr., “We’re always looking for opportunities to fill in the gaps, to expand our product offering and serve customers that we haven’t been able to in the past. MSI was one such opportunity where all of the pieces seemed to fit together well.”
Rice Lake Weighing Systems is a family-owned, ISO 9001 certified corporation. In addition to its Wisconsin headquarters, the company has facilities in North America, South America, India and the Netherlands.
