Biography
Doran Scales Inc. is a manufacturer of digital scales for the healthcare, food processing, chemical manufacturing, and industrial markets.

Our scales are designed to perform with repeatable accuracy in the hostile washdown environments found in the food processing industry. The Doran 4100 gained immediate recognition for its speed, durability, and ease of use — a reputation still growing as the industry's leading stainless steel scale.

By design, we offer the industry's most varied selection of "off-the-shelf" options. Our wide-range of tower heights, platform sizes, custom indicators, user-programmable options, and software makes it possible to put a Doran scale to work in almost any industrial or commercial application without special engineering.
