CAT Scale® Celebrates 40 Years of Weighing

CAT Scale installed its first scale in South Holland, Illinois in 1977. For CAT Scale Company, it’s been over 40 years of striving to provide professional drivers with the most accurate weights possible. Founded by Truckstop entrepreneur, Bill Moon, CAT Scale Company revolutionized the trucking industry, by introducing the first totally automated, full-length platform scale.

For the first time, drivers had access to scales that could weigh their entire truck and trailer unit all at once. Drivers could get a weight on their vehicle that was guaranteed accurate with CAT Scale’s unconditional guarantee. Plus, CAT Scale was there to stand behind them if there were any problems. “My dad talked to drivers every day and was always trying to figure out ways to make their job easier,” says Delia Moon Meier, Senior Vice President. “We still follow that same philosophy in everything we do here.”

CAT Scale is now the largest truck scale network in the world, with over 1,800 locations in 47 states and seven Canadian Provinces and offers the Weigh My Truck® app that allows drivers to weigh and pay from their smartphone or tablet.

“We understand that time is money for drivers and fast, accurate weighing is important. That is why we invest so much in technology and preventative maintenance,” says Meier.

“Thank you to our dedicated employees, truckstop partners and our customers for helping us continue to serve the professional driver. We are very grateful for your hard work and continued support.”
