Griffith Elder & Co Ltd, based in Suffolk, England, is a designer and manufacturer of electronic weighing equipment. The company was founded by David Elder in 1981 and has expanded over the years from small beginnings to providing an extensive product list, exporting worldwide to over 80 countries. The success of the company lies in its ability to design and produce customised, long-lasting, low maintenance weighing machines.
- The Beginnings
Griffith Elder’s first product was the Yield-Per-Field™, an invention which monitored the weight of grain dispensed from a combine harvester. This gave arable farmers previously unavailable management information – vital for profitability in a market where prices were being squeezed at a time when less efficient farmers were going out of business.
Griffith Elder found a niche in weighing hauliers’ vehicles for overloaded axles, and this first weighbridge product led the way for a whole range of Ton-Tel™ weighbridges to be designed. Products now range from very small simple units through to large truck scales capable of taking 200 tonnes coupled with sophisticated computer programs to log and report weighing activity.
- The Future
Over the last five years Griffith Elder has been developing new technology to design a new range of weighing products with the assistance of a SMART award from the British government. This innovative new product range is putting Griffith Elder into the forefront of weighing systems available to industries across the world.
