The Loadrite New Zealand Scales Story!

In 2007 brothers Steve and Phil Alloway began business as the exclusive distributors of Loadrite products within New Zealand. Since that time they have taken the already strong brand of Loadrite within the quarry and mining sectors and expanded it to dominate in most of the markets that Loadrite operates in.

A strong focus on customer support and “doing what we say we will do” has enabled Loadrite New Zealand to grow from strength to strength. The impressive diversity and quantity of blue chip customers using Loadrite systems throughout New Zealand reads like a who’s who of business. Loadrite New Zealand have focused not only the big national accounts as we believe every customer is of equal importance.  Small businesses are a key focus of Loadrite New Zealands growth, we want to be involved with customers from small beginnings to larger operations.

In 1979 Actronic Technologies developed the first Loadrite product to solve truck loading problems at a waste transfer station in New Zealand. Displaying technical prowess, the founding Actronic Technology engineers used their understanding of machine hydraulics and electronics to develop a scale to weigh buckets and record weights on wheel loaders.

Since Actronic Technologies developed that initial system, Loadrite products have evolved technically while spreading globally. The Loadrite range of products has become the industry leader for scales on wheel loaders, and have grown into new systems like excavator scales, conveyor belt scales, and garbage trucks.

Our engineering team has utilized a unique blend of knowledge of heavy machinery, the physics of weighing and application understanding to develop weighing solutions for our customers needs.
