History

Rick Rurka is the owner/manager and heavy-duty mechanic by trade. He has been installing LOADRITE systems since 1989, with a background as a heavy equipment mechanic. R. L. RURKA SALES AND SERVICE INC. started in 1993 and we have been growing ever since!

The first scales we installed in 1989, often slowed the operator down and required very specific weighing procedures, but the newest LOADRITE systems offer fully dynamic weighing and compensate for operator technique, terrain and other environmental factors.

In 1989, onboard scales were new, requiring more operator training, but once they got used to using them, they saw the benefits to the scale and realized these were an essential part of their day to day operations.

LOADRITE products have become an essential part of a growing economy, using innovative technology to help operators become more efficient, and complete their job more effectively and confidently.
