Budry Scales: Pioneering Weighing Solutions in Sri Lanka
Founded in the late 1950s by Mr. W.P. Abdul Aziz, Budry Scales has emerged as the largest weighing scale company in Sri Lanka. What began as a humble endeavor to repair weighing machines soon transformed into a remarkable journey of innovation and growth. Faced with the challenge of unavailable spare parts, Mr. Aziz displayed unwavering determination and resourcefulness, manufacturing the required components himself despite limited resources and infrastructure.
By the 1960s, Mr. Aziz had accumulated enough manufactured parts to assemble a completely new scale. Through sheer hard work and the support of the Directors of the Department of Weights & Measures of Sri Lanka, Budry Scales became the pioneering manufacturer of mechanical dial scales in the country. In 1989, the company was formally established as a Limited Liability entity. Today, we take immense pride in the fact that the third generation of Mr. W.P. Abdul Aziz’s family is actively involved in the company’s management, ensuring the continuation of our pioneering legacy as the sole mechanical dial scale manufacturer in Sri Lanka, commanding the highest market share.
Under the visionary leadership of Mr. Fazil Deen Aziz, the current Chairman and Managing Director, Budry Scales underwent a significant transformation in the 1990s with the introduction of electronic weighing scales. Leveraging his expertise and contributions to the company’s growth, Mr. Fazil introduced a range of over 100 electronic weighing scale varieties for both trade and non-trade purposes. All our trade scales are pattern approved by the Department of Measurement Units, Standards & Services, ensuring their compliance and suitability for trade purposes.
Budry Scales further solidified its market leadership by pioneering state-of-the-art barcode label printing weighing scales and receipt printing weighing scales. These cutting-edge solutions have garnered significant market recognition and have contributed to our company’s substantial market share in these advanced weighing scale categories.
Mr. Fazil Aziz’s brother, Fazni Aziz, graduated with an Engineering degree from Purdue University in Indiana, USA, in 1996. Bringing his technical knowledge and expertise to the company, Fazni actively supports Budry Scales in its continuous growth and development. Additionally, Mr. Fazil’s eldest son, Shimer Fazil, graduated with a degree in Electrical & Electronic Engineering from Stony Brook University in New York, USA, in 2019. Furthermore, his second son, Umar Fazil, graduated with a degree in Computer Engineering from Binghamton University in New York, USA, in 2021. Both Shimer and Umar play vital roles in supporting the development and growth of Budry Scales.
