About

Who we are

For us, a scale goes far beyond weight. When we think of scales, we think of Innovation, Future and World. When we think of scales we think of New Methods of Payment, Wireless Technology, Data Collection and Automation. When we think of scales, we think of your industry, your supermarket or your butcher shop. For us, the scale is part of the family.

HISTORY OF WEIGHT
WITH MID-CENTURY

It was 1967 when our father Jose Pimenta Marques decided to start his own project in the manufacture of scales. He started working in the same facilities of his mother, taking advantage of the existing resources, but on his own, that is, creating his own company: Balanças Marques.

When he created Balanças Marques, our father José Pimenta Marques had the dream of improving the quality of life of our family, creating a sustainable business. With this goal in mind, he ended up launching differentiating products that marked the company's innovative and ambitious DNA.

For more than 50 years, the scale has been the center of our family and we stand by you to help you choose and develop the best weighing solution for your business
