Northern Balance Ltd was founded by Jeff Rouse in 1971, and we have been servicing all makes of balances and scales in Northern England and Scotland since then. Jeff retired in 2005 and the business has been run by his son, Hayden Rouse, since then.
Our offices and workshops are situated in Gateshead, just off the Western Bypass and very near to the Metro Centre, making us easy to find and highly accessible.
With over forty years of experience, we are used to working with all types of balances. Our skilled Engineers regularly attend manufacturers courses to update their product knowledge and technical abilities, allowing us to continue to offer the highest quality service to all of our customers.
Big enough to cope yet small enough to care
We have large contracts with many prominent companies, health authorities and county councils in the area, as well as schools, colleges and universities. We also gladly look after many smaller establishments, where there may only be one or two balances to service, but which may be vital to their successful operation.
Our high standards meet the most exacting requirements
Quality assurance has a high priority within our company, and we have a fully-implemented QA procedure to cover all aspects of our organisation. All of our weights are traceable to NPL and hold a valid UKAS calibration certificate. We can provide certification for the calibration of balances that meets the requirements of all quality assurance standards.
As authorised agents for all of the main balance and scale manufacturers, we enjoy their support in serving our customers. This includes the provision of training courses for calibration, service, repair and adjustment, as well as the updating of software.
It's where the trade turn : Northern Balance regularly carries out repairs on behalf of other local balance and scale companies and manufacturers.
