Why we have long customer relationships
Lahti Precision enables the sustainable and efficient utilization of the natural resources and raw materials used by our customers. With the company’s reliable weighing and dosing technology and constantly developed modern weighing services, it is possible for our customers to optimize and improve the efficiency of their own production.
Lahti Precision is a traditional, well-known scale supplier. However, not everyone knows that Lahti Precision also has decades of experience in the dosing, transfer and other handling of bulk materials. This, combined with advanced technology, enables excellent service to a variety of the customers. Our starting point is that we want to listen to the customers’ needs, suggest possible solutions and then implement them in cooperation. What is important to us at Lahti Precision is that the customer relationship becomes durable and this genuinely develops the operations of the both parties.
Our customers are the companies that want to focus on their own core business and let the weighing specialist take responsibility of this specialty area. Lahti Precision’s customers can be found in practically from every industry; the building materials and drymix industry, the metal and steel industry, the chemical industry, the forest industry, the food industry, the pharmaceutical industry and the transport and logistics sector. The industries generally are developing to a direction where the customer wants to buy weighing as a service and we in Lahti want to contribute to this development.
At the core of our expertise will continue to be scales and bulk material dosing systems equipped with modern automation and weighing information management system. In addition to the above, we have strong expertise in bulk material handling and bagging, various weighing components and conveyors for the forest industry. A significant portion of the company’s sales come from services, including mScales SaaS services, commissioning and calibration of the equipment we supply, and maintenance and spare parts services.
We want to be at the forefront of development in order to provide for our customers measurable financial added value. For continuing as a pioneer in weighing services, in the future all scales can be connected to the mScales weighing service which we have developed. With mScales, it is possible for our customers to achieve new, unprecedented business benefits.
The company’s operations are guided and managed in accordance with the requirements of the ISO 9001:2015 standard. Our energy-efficient technology which promotes the efficiency of weighing and dosing solutions, combined with services that improve operating costs and quality, is particularly well-suited to the needs of the circular economy.
