“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, CAT Scale’s senior vice president. “I remember my dad, Bill Moon, thinking that 100 or 150 would saturate the market. We are so appreciative of all of our truck stop partners, and we are honored to be able to celebrate with Road Ranger and their great staff.”

In 1977, CAT Scale founder, Bill Moon, installed the first CAT Scale in South Holland, Illinois. In 1988, there were 28 CAT Scales in existence. After that, the company expanded rapidly. Now there are 2,000 CAT brand truck scales in 47 states and seven Canadian provinces with more opening each month.

Professional drivers depend on CAT Scales, the company noted in a prepared statement. Drivers who weigh on a CAT Scale are covered by a no-excuses guarantee: If a driver receives an overweight fine after weighing as “legal” on a CAT brand scale, the CAT Scale Co. will either pay the fine or appear in court with the driver as an expert witness in to get the fine dismissed.
