Fairbanks Scales Acquires Automated Access Solutions

July 9, 2009
Fairbanks Scales Inc. has announced the purchase of a majority of the assets of Automated Access Solutions (AAS) from PDQ Manufacturing Inc., a subsidiary of Dover Corp.

AAS is engaged in the business of designing, manufacturing, and marketing automated access systems used in vehicle weighing applications. Automated Access Solutions has become a leader in the implementation of unattended vehicle weighing applications.

This acquisition will support and strengthen Fairbanks’ heavy capacity business. According to Bob Jozwiak, vice president of sales and marketing of Fairbanks Scales Inc., “Unattended weighing systems are becoming more and more important to our customers. We believe that the addition of Automated Access Solutions to the Fairbanks offering will give us the broadest unattended product line in the industry.” 
 
Founded in 1830, Fairbanks Scales has become a leader in the industrial weighing market by creating and manufacturing a range of weighing equipment solutions. From bench, parcel, counting, floor, and truck scales to animal, railroad track, and a full range of specialty scales, Fairbanks is headquartered in Kansas City, MO, and can provide services for non-weighing products based on its nationwide contingent of technicians who can provide preventive maintenance and reliable service.
