Grand Rapids Metrology wins award for best workplace.

Fairbanks Scales Inc., the oldest scale company in the U.S. and the world’s leader in weighing equipment, announces that Grand Rapids Metrology, one of Fairbanks’ top distributors, was selected as West Michigan’s 2017 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by Michigan Business & Professional Association (MBPA).

Grand Rapids Metrology won the award in the small business category, and was recently feted at the gala award ceremony banquet. MBPA used a rigorous three-step process to develop the list of winners, based on company and employee surveys. They selected the winning companies after reviewing information on such categories as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention and more.

Founded in 1922, Grand Rapids Metrology began by selling wagon scales in Grand Rapids. Since then, it has evolved into the largest provider of measurement services in Michigan, with service locations in Grand Rapids, Benton Harbor, Bay City, Battle Creek, and Metro Detroit.
