Pioneer Scale Company, founded in 1976 by Ronnie Crews and his wife Jeanie, has been a family-owned business with a rich history of building relationships and providing exceptional customer service. Starting from humble beginnings at the kitchen table, the Crews family's dedication and hard work led to the development of a thriving business with four service locations, including headquarters in Benton, AR. Ronnie and Jeanie's sons, Keith and Brien, joined the family business in the late 1980s, further strengthening the company's commitment to customer service and innovation.

"Michelli Weighing & Measurement is thrilled to welcome the Pioneer Scale Company team to our family," said Bobby Feigler, CEO of Michelli Weighing & Measurement. "Pioneer's commitment to customer service, industry expertise, and family values aligns perfectly with our own, and we're excited to continue the legacy that the Crews family has built."

"As we join forces with Michelli Weighing & Measurement, it feels less like an acquisition and more like a reunion of two families with remarkably similar values. Our dedication to honesty, integrity, and family has always been at the heart of Pioneer Scale Company, and seeing these values reflected so strongly in Michelli reassures us that we are on the right path. Together, we will continue to build on our legacy of exceptional customer service and drive towards even greater profitability and innovation. This partnership marks a significant milestone in our journey, and we are excited about the future we will create together." – Keith Crews
