The history of Cooperativa Bilanciai began in 1949 when a group of skilled workers in the construction of weighing systems established the first company, which would then be transformed into a Cooperative in 1963.
Today, the company Cooperativa Bilanciai operates a modern plant over 22,000 m2 in size located at the confluence of the motorway system linking central Italy to the north and the rest of Europe.
Cooperativa Bilanciai offers our customers not only innovative products, but also comprehensive services (certifications, quality control, preventive maintenance). The company designs and manufactures the entire know-how of the components in the measuring chain for weighing systems, such as: weighbridges, platforms, electronic cells and terminals and machines for pricing weight. It is precisely with the aim of offering an efficient solution to any weighing needs that Bilanciai Group was formed. With our own brands in the sector and a Europe-wide sales organization (and also in the USA since 2003, through a joint venture with an established local company), we are today capable of handling all fields of weighing: from industrial weighing to analytical weighing. Everything is driven by a single philosophy: continuous and integrated research to design and develop products and services which meet customer needs perfectly.
The qualified resources we possess, our relationships with the most prestigious university research institutes and the extensive process of internationalization now place the Bilanciai Group at the pinnacle of our sector. As well as designing and manufacturing instruments for conventional weighing applications (although always with completely electronic technology), Bilanciai is now targeting new markets with our own digital technology, the many advantages of which include the ability to monitor the status of the weighing at any time.
In addition, as regards weighing and labelling systems, the company has completed the process of integrating our own production cycle, thus enhancing the historic Cigiemme brand with its over forty years of market presence.
Innovation and Service
Bilanciai customers can therefore benefit from a comprehensive service, from the accuracy verifications necessary to respect the stringent quality standards imposed on companies, through to remote control, monitoring and updating. Our own capabilities and autonomy in developing all aspects of products (mechanics, electronics, software) combined with the typically Italian flexibility and attentiveness to the market, have become the driving force behind our foreign expansion into traditionally closed markets with strong national characteristics. Strong cultural growth in the field of technical and metrological skills has made Bilanciai today a company of international reference in the field of scientific metrology. This not only means innovation in our products, but also in our services and customer loyalty.
