CAT Scale Expands Network With Purchase of Interstate Scales

WALCOTT, IOWA -- CAT Scale Company has entered into an agreement with Hargett Enterprises, Inc., to purchase Interstate Scales from the company. For the time being CAT Scale Company will operate Interstate Scales intact while scale sites are evaluated. “We see this as a win-win,” says Delia Moon Meier, Senior Vice President, CAT Scale Company. “We are excited about this. Interstate has a fully equipped and fully staffed office, technical center and warehouse in Evansville, Indiana. With both offices, we are now only a one day drive to 70% of our scales.”

Interstate Scales consists of 143 truck scale locations throughout the U.S.; located at truck stops. “CAT Scale is a good company. They have a great reputation with drivers and I see this as a big positive for Interstate Scale locations.” says Wayne Hargett, Hargett Enterprises, Inc.

CAT Scale Company is part of Iowa 80 Group that also owns and operates Iowa 80 TA Truckstop, Walcott, Iowa; Petro Stopping Centers in Joplin, Missouri and Oak Grove, Missouri; Kenly 95 TA Truckstop, Kenly, North Carolina, Truckomat Truck Washes; IOWA80.COM mail-order catalog and e-commerce web site; as well as the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum, Walcott, Iowa.
