SmartLoad® wins Weighing Review's 'Best Load Cell' award

Scotload scoops first place in Weighing Review Readers’ Choice ‘Best Load Cell’ award for its innovative SmartLoad® load measurement system.

Scotload, part of James Fisher and Sons plc, is proud to announce that its innovative load measurement system, SmartLoad®, has been awarded first place in the ‘Best Load Cell’ category of the Weighing Review Readers’ Choice Awards 2015 – an annual on-line voting competition that covers the major innovations in weighing technology.

SmartLoad® is an intelligent load monitoring system that focuses on improving safety and reducing costs during lifting applications. Developed in response to the needs of customers, the technology is unique in the marketplace with features that improve usability as well as incorporating the latest wireless technology giving significantly improved range.

Simon Everett, managing director of Scotload, said, “We constantly strive to develop solutions for our customers that make their operations safer, easier and more efficient. We recognised the needs of the lifting industry had evolved and saw an opportunity to develop a system to fulfil these emerging requirements. SmartLoad® was developed in-house, using the latest technology, specifically to meet the challenges of the lifting industry today. I’m especially pleased that SmartLoad® gives tangible benefits to our customers and that they have recognised this by voting so strongly.”

The company beat stiff competition from 50 other weighing products and solutions to win the award, which is especially coveted as it’s voted by the International Weighing Review’s readers in over 72 countries. In a double-scoop, Scotload itself won second place in the ‘Best Weighing Company’ category as well, demonstrating its customers hold the company in high regard.

Everett added, “We are delighted to win these awards and would like to thank everyone for taking the time to vote for us.  We work hard to provide our customers with the best products, delivered from stock and backed up with a strong service offering, and to have them recognise this through these awards is a great endorsement of what we are continuously striving to achieve.”
