Northern Balance: Part of the Gem Scientific group.
In November 2016 Gem Scientific acquired the UKAS accredited balance and scales specialist Northern Balance, who became part of the Gem Group with immediate effect.
Northern Balance, established in 1971, is a UKAS accredited calibration laboratory, one of the few companies to attain this high standard for on-site calibration of non-automatic weighing machines. UKAS accreditation is a reflection of the competence, impartiality, and integrity of the business, assuring clients they will receive the highest quality of service.
With over 45 years’ experience, the company has built a strong reputation for its technical expertise, excellent personal customer service, and support throughout the whole service and calibration process.
The acquisition is part of an ambitious expansion plan to service the growing life sciences, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, education, manufacturing and medical technology sectors across the UK and Ireland.
This is a great opportunity for our two companies to utilize their respective expertise. It will improve our product and service offering for all clients while enhancing Gem’s local and national presence whilst continuing our excellent customer service across the group.
