From its roots in weighing equipment, Ishida went on to build the world's first automatic weighing machine in 1959. Thirteen years later, the revolutionary Multihead Weigher was launched.

Since 1972, Ishida has grown steadily, expanding the product range vastly to offer not only weighing systems, but also packing machines, quality control systems and complete solutions for fresh, frozen and dry foods.

Equally, Ishida's customer base has increased dramatically, ranging from individual multiheads or checkweighers for small contracts packers to complete packing plants for multinational blue-chip companies.
