Tanita is the world leader in precision electronic scales. The company's success and expanding global presence is the result of superior technology, unique design, and high manufacturing standards that have earned ISO 9001 certification.

For the last 40 years of its 63-year history, Tanita's core business has been the manufacturing of precision scales. Today, Tanita is looking beyond scales to products that enable consumers to monitor their own health and fitness. Based on medical evidence linking excess body fat to heart

disease, diabetes and certain cancers, Tanita introduced the world's first integrated body composition monitor to the professional markets in 1992. Using the same technology used in their professional monitors, Tanita developed the world's first scale plus body fat monitor for home use in 1994. Tanita's accuracy innovation and durability are trusted worldwide.

This pioneering work has led to the creation of an entirely new category of consumer products that could make the conventional weight scale obsolete. Tanita's goal is to help people enjoy healthier lives. In 1990, the Tanita Best Weight Research and Development Center was established to fulfill this commitment. The Center, located in Tokyo, studies the relationship between a person's weight and well-being by analysing not only medical and nutritional conditions, but also the impact of physical activity, psychological stress and sociological factors.
