About USS


scale service
Universal Scale Service was established in 1991 by Mike Tinney, a 13-year veteran of NCI, Weigh-Tronix, Electro Scale & WC Dillon. After earning his degree in electronics, he spent 18 months in Silicon Valley at Lockheed Missile & space Co. as a microelectronics systems specialist, before moving back to Sonoma County to work for the company who developed the first digital scale: National Controls. The years of experience there led to a need Mike saw he could fill by bridging the gap between dealers and scale manufacturers that existed because of high pricing, slow turn-around, or products no longer supported, and formed Universal Scale Service. 30 years later, we are still here in Sebastopol providing the same quality service our dealers depend on.
