United Scale Service was established by Richard Goddard in April, 1973 to serve the weighing needs of agriculture and industries in southwest Missouri, southeast Kansas, northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. The company’s customer base includes grain elevators, coal mines, rock quarries, asphalt plants, cattle handling facilities, power generating stations, food processing plants, concrete batching plants, scrap metal processors, refuse transfer stations, fertilizer blender facilities, farming operations, and many other business entities.
Since March 1994 the company has been operated by Richard and Matthew Goddard. Both are involved with the sales and service of scales as small as analytical balances to as large as 400,00 lb capacity railroad track scales, nearly all manufactured by Cardinal Scale Manufacturing Company in Webb City.
United Scale Service has two heavy duty test trucks for service one with a 25,000 lb test cart and one with 19,000 lbs.
