Expert knowledge and competence in high-precision technology since 1935 characterize Precisa.
Precisa conquered markets in Africa, Asia and South America in days when these areas were still undeveloped and working there required an adventurous approach.
Precisa invested in research and development of new products at times in history when this was extremely challenging.

This philosophy is still valid today!

The core business of weighing has been redefined and revolutionised. Today Precisa belongs in many markets and in different product areas to the leading companies.
