OHAUS Europe GmbH

Who we are

Headquartered in Parsippany, New Jersey, OHAUS Corporation is a global leader in manufacturing an extensive line of weighing products, laboratory equipment and analytical instruments that meet and surpass the weighing and measurement needs of a broad range of industries, including laboratory, industrial, educational, food preparation and retail markets. An ISO 9001:2015 manufacturer, OHAUS develops products that are precise, reliable, affordable and backed by industry-leading customer support.


In 1907, Gustav Ohaus and his father, Karl, opened a small scale repair business in Newark, New Jersey. They soon began manufacturing their own balances and scales under the OHAUS name. As business grew, OHAUS developed a reputation for precision, reliability and durability.


OHAUS continued to innovate with the introduction of the Harvard Trip Balance, an industry standard, and more recently, the groundbreaking Explorer analytical and precision balances.


While remaining grounded in deep American roots, OHAUS has expanded with offices across six continents, with a broad dealer network to service customer needs around the world. A growing digital presence and dedicated technical support provide unique advantages for our customers.


The signature quality, accuracy and value that define OHAUS now extend to a wider range of specialized products, including analytical instruments and laboratory equipment.
