To be independently run with the financial and technical backing of MWS Ltd

Leicester, 27 February 2017 – Weightru Ltd, renowned in the industry for providing high quality axle weighing solutions, has been bought by a newly formed partnership of five weighing professionals.

Weightru Ltd will move to the MWS Ltd facility in Leicestershire and will benefit from improved capabilities including manufacturing and new testing facilities.

Andrew Clarke, Managing Director, Weightru, and Commercial Director, MWS, said, “When we were first approached to buy Weightru we looked at the business and saw unrealised potential on several fronts. We look forward to investing in Weightru and building out the company’s capabilities, with the vision to develop the business into a leading player in the vehicle weighing industry. Having recently secured commitments from several key accounts, the retention of our clients is at the forefront of my mind, and the improvements we have planned will go a long way in achieving this.”

Andrew added, “The five partners sharing ownership of Weightru are weighing industry veterans with over 150 years of collective experience, which should bring reassurance to customers that they are in safe and capable hands.”
