Bill Scales: Deflating Customers’ Overhead

NAM Member Spotlight
Small Manufacturer Deflates Customers’ Overhead

Yes, you can even save money on the air at your plant.  Production line stoppages, higher operating costs, slowed production and reduced product quality can all be results of compressed air problems.  Hard to believe but it is true.  Customers of NAM-member small manufacturer Scales Air Compressor Corp. (Carle Place, NY—202 employees), at sites in the U.S., Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Nigeria, Germany, Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, have realized energy savings of 25-50 percent from their Scales-made compressed air systems.   

Want to get started today on a solution?  Search for Scales Air on the NAM Buyer-Seller Network or go to Scales’ website directly at  Before anything gets installed in your facility, Scales conducts a customized compressed air audit and guarantees the savings will exceed the cost of the survey—or the survey is free.    

Want to know how your investment can add up to big savings after the installation of one of Scales’ custom systems?  Just in the U.S., a Michigan auto parts plant could tell you how it saved $400,000; a North Carolina soft drink bottle maker could explain how it realized $180,000 in savings; or a California oil lube plant could show you how it avoided $52,000 in energy costs.  Reduced energy consumption and maintenance costs plus minimal capital expenditures can really add up!   

Does all of this sound too good to be true?  It isn’t but don’t take our word for it.  Just ask the U.S. Energy Department (DOE), which continually cites Scales in their BestPractices Management Case Studies.  In fact, four of the 22 certified instructors for DOE’s Compressed Air Challenge program are Scales employees.  DOE knows to go where the experts hang their hats. 

Now are you ready to take control of what probably is one of largest energy costs at your plant?
