Who We Are

VPG Onboard Weighing is a brand of Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (NYSE: VPG), a global specialist in resistive foil technology, sensors, and sensor-based systems; specializing in the growing markets of stress, force, weight, pressure, and current measurements.

VPG Onboard Weighing is headquartered in Bradford, UK. This is home to our R&D facilities and product development teams, staffed by electronic and software developers, mechanical CAD designers.

VPG Onboard Weighing's policy is to consistently provide products and services that meet or exceed the requirements and expectations of our customers.

In addition to our international sales offices, we continue to rapidly grow our partner network worldwide, adding to the expertise of our in-house technical service specialists to provide clients with world-class support, aftercare and training wherever they are based.

VPG Onboard Weighing was founded in the mid-1980s as PM Onboard, making it the UK’s longest-established manufacturer of on-vehicle weighing systems. PM Onboard was bought by US electronic components firm Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. in 2008 (NYSE: VSH). Two years later, a group of weighing and sensing businesses owned by Vishay were spun out to form totally independent Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (NYSE: VPG). This included the newly re-branded VPG Onboard Weighing.

VanWeigh units are worth their weight in gold!

Nick HatchettStores Supervisor, Booth Dispensers Ltd, UK

I have just ordered our fourth VanWeigh system in two years for our growing fleet of VW Crafters. VPG Onboard Weighing fitters are polite, courteous and well trained in their knowledge of the units being fitted. Vehicles are left clean, tidy and ready for work. 

The VanWeigh units themselves are worth their weight in gold. There is no fiddling about to add up weight, just load the vehicles and the unit does the rest. Drivers can see straight away if they need to alter their load to spread the weight.
