In the year 1904 W & T [William & Thomas] Avery invented Weighing Scale and formed the Company W & T Avery Limited. A UK based
company, situated in Foundry Lane, Smethwick, West Midlands, B66 2LP Birmingham, England.
In June 2000, the merger of Weigh-Tronix and Avery Weigh-Tronix brought together some of the best known and longest-established companies
in the weighing industry. The consolidation of the group was finally completed in September 2003, when the change of name to Avery Weigh-
Tronix created a single corporate entity to service today’s global markets.
In October 1961 a branch of W& T. Avery Ltd was established in Ghana, then situated at South Labadi Industrial estate to look after the
thousands of Avery platform scales already in the country especially the Cocoa industry. The presence of these platform scales in the remotest
villages of the cocoa growing areas is well known.
In August 1971 Avery Ghana Limited was incorporated initially with a 35% Ghanaian shareholding. In 1976 the Ghanaian shareholding
increased to 50% and since then Ghanaians and the foreign partners have equal shares. The company is presently situated at east Tesano,
Opposite the National Police Training School.
The company’s national service network provides repair and maintenance support for its own and other manufacturers’ weighing and IT-based
equipment. A state-of-the art national response centre, strategically located service centres and more than 20 field-based technicians provide
