New Technologies

Ensuring we provide products and services at the forefront of technological advances we introduced CDRe our Cloud Based Electronic Controlled Drug Register along with Cold Chain our fully automated environment monitoring solution both of which have been widely received.


Quality Management

Denward is awarded ISO9001:2015 accreditation by our external auditing partner BSI. We are very proud of the quality of our products and services and this quality system ensures this mindset is adopted by our loyal workforce.



The addition of another purpose built production facility, incorporating the latest technologies including the latest sate of the art 3D printing (enabling rapid prototyping of complex parts) and extensive warehousing has brought further success. This allowed us to grow our industry leading product range supplied through a variety of distribution channels across the whole of the UK and internationally. Continually supporting our growing customer base whilst ensuring Denward is more than just a box mover we establish an ever growing range of essential products and services at market leading prices.



Although Stuart continued as an important figurehead to the Company, with one eye on succession and the other on future growth, his sons Duncan and Richard took over the day to day operation of the business overseeing the addition of a brand new warehouse extension and the acquisition and roll out of our new purpose built production facility in Essex.



Providing full service and support for its customer base Denward went on to become the number one on site service provider for some of the UK's leading National Pharmacy Chains with our engineers covering 4000+ sites across the UK and Ireland.


Changing Times

Keeping up with changing times our range of traditional equal arm balances became the first to carry CE Verification. To mark the end of traditional Crown stamping we introduced the limited addition Compact Millennium Balance. These balances were hand crafted in brass and were the last Class II weighing scales ever to hold the Crown stamp, a sign of accuracy dating back centuries. With the onset on new technologies Denward soon became one of the fastest growing electronic balance companies within the UK.


Product Development

Working closely with our industry leading partners our developing range of pharmacy products and services saw our portfolio grow to include our market leading Controlled Drug Cabinets, The DenKit Controlled Drug Denaturing Kit, Pharmacy Fridges our high accuracy Electronic Balances and the addition of the Techno Class ll Traditional Weighing Scale, the only traditional balance made to meet the requirements with a minimum weight of 12.5mg.


Science Museum

As one of Britain's last manufacturers of high accuracy mechanical balances Denward provided an array of equipment to the London Science Museum in support of a new exhibition which is still on show today.


New Beginnings...

Seeing an opportunity and never know to shy away from a challenge Stuart took over the reigns from Dennis and Edward working tirelessly to established the company as the go to manufacturer and supplier of specialist medical equipment within the Pharmacy/Laboratory and Education Industries. Working with some of the largest trade associations during their formative years (in support of their membership) and legislative bodies Denward was instrumental in the reform of the weighing industry.


The Early Years

Established in 1964 by Dennis and Edward (hence the name) Denward specialised in the manufacture of traditional high accuracy weighing equipment. This specialist equipment was used in a variety of industries from dispensing chemists to tobacconists, laboratories to the aviation industry and even egg weighing!
