About Us


Dave Griffith started Lake Balance Company in June of 1986, after moving to Madison, OH from Oxford, MA, where he had been service manager for a balance company for six years. Before going to Massachusetts, he had worked for Mettler Instrument for fifteen years, servicing balances in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia and Ohio.

Over the years, Lake Balance Company has been involved in many projects outside of servicing weighing equipment. In 2003, because of the business diversification, Lake Balance took on the DBA of Lake Balance & Calibration Services. We first became accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard in 2004, to supply our customers with a quality calibration service.

Our service technicians have over 70 years combined experience in the weighing industry and have been trained by many leading manufacturers, including Mettler, A&D; and Rice Lake Weighing Systems. We sell a complete line of balances, scales, weights and accessories, and can provide a total system configuration.

LB & CS provides ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Accredited calibrations of balances, moisture analyzers, scales, weights, pipettes and temperature measurement apparatus. We were the first company to provide ISO/IEC 17025:2005 calibration certificates for pipettes.

LB & CS technicians have extensive experience in repairing boards and trouble shooting electronic problems.

As an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited company, Lake Balance Company Inc., DBA LB & CS can fill all your calibration, service, repair and sales needs. With many satisfied customers, we look forward to helping you keep your equipment in excellent working order.
