“The best part of Advance Scale? We are family company, and you really do feel like family.
My years with this company has trained me for every type of job out there. My time on the Installation Team offered experience in all stages of foundation work, including fabrication of custom design to meet customer needs. The Service Department helped me understand how much the entire world relies on scales. Every day is something different- you get to experience every industry out there!”

“I had been working as a Billing/Scheduler, in the Fire Sprinkler Protection field, for almost 15 years when I came to ADVANCE. From day one, the ADVANCE Family has made me feel welcome and part of the Team. I say Family because it truly feels that way. We are all encouraged to ask questions and give suggestions on how we can improve processes that are in place. No one is ever made to feel “bad” because a mistake may have been made, but rather spoken to as an equal to correct the problem. I have never felt like I “work for” the owners of ADVANCE, but rather work with them. I have found my “forever work home” at least until I retire!”

“There’s no I in team here! Since the time I was a young man starting out here, everyone I have worked with has been there to work towards the common goal, completing our tasks day in and day out. Even the owners of the company are out there getting their hands dirty with us. Our capabilities are vast and varied, and every day I still learn something new.”
At ADVANCE, we understand the importance of every role and every person on our Team. More specifically, the Scale Technician role is one of great importance and is necessary in the overall function of key industries, such as food manufacturing and waste management. One of the greatest challenges facing the scale and weighing solutions industry is the education and training of the next generation of skilled technicians. This is not an area of study offered in many school settings, and the recruitment of talent typically comes in the form of an interest of those that have studied in the HVAC, Electrical, and Automotive fields.
With this in mind, ADVANCE has partnered with a local technical school to increase the visibility of this industry through the ASC Apprenticeship Program. Through this program, Advance will have the opportunity to introduce students of related studies to the vast career opportunities that await them in the scale industry. Students have the opportunity to join the Advance Scale Team through the Summer Apprenticeship Program, or even as a Cooperative Education Intern (Co-op) in their area of study during the school year to supplement their courses.
And as a second-generation family-owned company, apprenticeships are not limited to the service side of the business. Advance Scale understands the importance of all roles, and also offers apprenticeships to students studying Business Administration and Accounting, too!
