Public Weighbridges Australia Pty Ltd is a modern face for a business that has provided services to the transport industry for over 85 years. Originally established in Sydney as Standard Weighbridges in 1930 by Wentworth Armstrong, the business has expanded over the generations, and now operates three of its own sites in NSW, and has eight partner sites across the country.
The company was the first to operate unmanned public weighbridges in Australia and boasts over 7000 customer swipe cards in circulation. Into the future we are introducing new control systems including Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras and EFTPOS facilities to enable trade approved weighing 24/7.
In 2015, the company was acquired by DiverseCo; a group of companies dedicated to measurement and automation. As such, PWA is now backed by Australia’s largest weighbridge supplier and service provider.
