SCAIME: a 40-year history

Together yesterday, today and tomorrow...

Commitment and Innovation...

...the common thread of our history.

The story of SCAIME is a human adventure in which the commitment of each individual and the quest for innovation have enabled the company to become a major player in the field of industrial weighing and measurement.

It all began modestly, with the production of load cells for three French scale manufacturers. At the time, no one could have foreseen the path that lay ahead for this fledgling company. SCAIME soon realized that to thrive, it needed to look beyond domestic borders, paving the way for international expansion.

Over time, the company also broadened its horizons, strengthening its ability to innovate and meet the technological needs of its customers. SCAIME has specialized in weighing systems for factory automation, and has developed new industrial measurement solutions for demanding sectors such as aeronautics and medicine.

However, SCAIME's real capital lies in its human relations. Our employees have always been at the heart of our success, testifying to our ability to evolve with the times and our dedication to our customers.

The next stage of our adventure is promising, and we are ready to take on new challenges thanks to our values and our employees.

Birth and development of SCAIME

Belonging to the same group, scale manufacturers TESTUT, TRAYVOU and TERRAILLON decided to group together the manufacture of load cells, essential components of a weighing instrument. This decision was taken in 1983 with the creation of SCAIME in Juvigny, whose mission was to supply all load cells to the group's companies. Business starts at the Terraillon site, in a 700 m2 facility, with 25 people from Terraillon and Testut.

Open Day : A first for SCAIME!

To kick off the festivities, SCAIME opened its doors to employees' families. Around a hundred people were able to discover the different departments as well as the production tools, attend wiring demonstrations by operators as well as real-life applications of our products, and view films on the White Room and Bonding manufacturing processes.  

At the end of the visit, a country-style meal and inflatable games awaited young and old, until nightfall.
