List of products by manufacturer Detecto


Dectecto Scale Company,  based in New York City, began in 1900 by three immigrant brothers (The Jacobs Brothers) in the butcher supply business. The Detecto acquisition brought with it an important, new dimension for Cardinal… scale building experience and know-how that dated back to the beginning of the 20th century. Over the years, Detecto had developed a respected name in the manufacture of scales for grocers, markets, the shipping industry and the medical field. These product lines and Detecto’s expertise were valuable additions to Cardinal, which quickly moved all manufacturing of Detecto scales to Webb City.

Today, Cardinal Scale Manufacturing Company is well known under the brand names Cardinal Scale and Detecto Scale. Cardinal is primarily known for its large-capacity scales (5,000 lbs and over) and associated information handling systems. Heavy-duty truck scales and such developments as the low-profile EPR truck scale and Guardian hydraulic scales are virtually synonymous with the Cardinal name. Detecto is most noted for scales with capacities under 5,000 lbs in the medical, food service, and postal industries.
