About Measurement Specialists

Specializing in the engineering of custom systems for standard and specialized environments, Measurement Specialists has worked with aerospace and defense contractors, steel mills, pharmaceutical, and countless other industries to develop successful force measurement systems. Our efficient, high quality manufacturing process allows us to design and build standard and custom load cells at a competitive a price, while providing additional options such as high temperature load cells, specialized calibrations, custom electronics and PC programming, and systems integration.

Measurement Specialists of National Scale Technology Inc. (MSNST) was established in 1982 and is located in Huntsville, Alabama. We are a woman owned manufacturer and supplier of load cells. We are extremely proud to build our products, exclusively, in America. All processing, from initial design to final quality control, are expressly conducted in the USA. Measurement Specialists employs an engineering team qualified to assist in virtually any weighing application, regardless of complexity. We maintain a full and highly capable machine shop, production line, on-site scale technicians, and a NIST-accredited calibration lab. Currently we are able to calibrate in tension up to 600,000 pounds and in compression up to 1,600,000 pounds. We routinely build load cells suitable for use up to 550°F.

Our continued emphasis on customer satisfaction, quality workmanship and quick turnarounds has enabled us to become one of the largest load cell manufacturers in the Southeast. We provide weighing solutions to many industries including aerospace, agriculture, food packaging, defense, steel industry, and automotive. In addition to custom weighing solutions, we are able to provide off-the-shelf load cells and we maintain a plentiful stock of many manufacturers’ standard cells. We are also equipped to repair virtually any load cell regardless of capacity or manufacturer, including obsolete cells; often for a fraction of the cost of a new unit.
