Columbus, Ohio-based Mettler Toledo introduced the bPro Counter Scale after recognizing a need in the retail and grocery industry for an economical scale solution with advanced capacity. A case study showcasing the bPro’s integration into a growing meat business outlines its successes.
This case study also demonstrates the value of having a weighing partner with years of experience and expertise to guide storeowners to the right solutions that best fit their unique needs for today and plans for the growth of tomorrow.
When Dave and Beverly Duma expanded Duma Meats to include a retail store, they worked with Tusko Sales and Service, their local Mettler Toledo authorized distributor. The Duma family started with four bPro scales when they added the store to their slaughterhouse eight years ago. Six years later, they added a second location and seven more bPro scales. Then two years ago, they combined the two locations and expanded the operation to utilize 17 bPro scales throughout the store. The bPro scales have grown with them—providing the ease of use and integration needed.
Beverly Duma shared the impact the bPro Counter Scales have had on Duma Meats: “The more [bPro] scales we add, the better they work to serve our customers, make our employees more productive and help us reduce costs by delivering quick and highly accurate readouts.”
