CAT Scale Co. opened its 2,000th truck scale on Nov. 18 at the Road Ranger in Marion, Illinois. CAT Scale marked the event with a ribbon cutting.
“When we started CAT Scale, I don’t think anyone envisioned we’d have 2,000 scales in operation. It’s definitely a milestone to celebrate,” said Delia Moon Meier, senior vice president of CAT Scale. “I remember my dad, Bill Moon, thinking that 100 or 150 would saturate the market. We are so appreciative of all of our truckstop partners and we are honored to be able to celebrate today with Road Ranger and their great staff.”
Moon Meier, along with Marko Zaro, CEO of Road Ranger, the Wade Wright CAT Scale mascot, and several company representatives, cut the ribbon to open the scale.
As the CAT Scale founder, Bill Moon installed the first CAT Scale in 1977 in South Holland, Illinois. In 1988, there were 28 CAT Scales in existence. At that time the company began to rapidly expand. Now there are 2,000 CAT-brand scales in 47 states and seven Canadian provinces.
CAT Scale provides a much-needed weighing service to the trucking public. Drivers who weigh on a CAT Scale are covered by a no-excuses guarantee. If a driver receives an overweight fine after weighing legal on a CAT brand scale, CAT Scale Company will either pay the fine or appear in court with the driver as an expert witness in order to get the fine dismissed.
