CAT Scale to buy Interstate Scales

CAT Scale has agreed to buy Interstate Scales from its owner, Hargett Enterprises. For the time being, CAT Scale will operate all 143 Interstate Scales locations while sites are evaluated. “We are excited about this," said Delia Moon Meier, senior vice president of CAT Scale, based in Walcott, Iowa. "Interstate has a fully equipped and fully staffed office, technical center and warehouse in Evansville, Ind. With both offices, we are now only a one-day drive to 70 percent of our scales."

The world's largest truck-scale network, CAT Scale has more than 1,000 locations in North America. It was founded in 1977 by the late Bill Moon, also the visionary behind the Iowa 80 truck stop and its annual Walcott Truckers Jamboree.
