Company History

Armando Mendiola founded Fast-Weigh in 1988 after developing scale and business software for Texas Crushed Stone in Georgetown, TX, one of the largest operating quarries west of the Mississippi. Recognizing the emerging potential of low-cost PCs, Armando saw an opportunity to bring electronic weigh ticketing systems to the market. He embarked on the creation of one of the earliest DOS-based platforms, gaining a significant following in Texas and across the United States.

Mike Mendiola, Armando's son, first entered the aggregates industry while still in high school. His summers were spent as a scale house operator, weighing and ticketing trucks using Fast-Weigh. After graduating from Baylor University in Computer Science and Business, Mike got to work updating Armando's platform from DOS to Windows in the mid 1990s. This software rewrite became one of the first Windows-based Scale Ticketing platforms available on the market.

In 2011, Mike co-founded TAC Insight alongside Steve Rasmussen. Their collaboration began when Steve, employed by a prominent civil contractor at the time, adopted Fast-Weigh for tracking aggregate and bulk material transportation. Together, they began developing innovative weighing and truck logistics solutions, recognizing the industry's shift towards cloud computing platforms. With Armando's retirement in 2014, Mike and Steve assumed responsibility for the Fast-Weigh software and embarked on an ambitious journey to transform it into a comprehensive SaaS platform. Their primary focus was on modernization, customer value enhancement, and product expansion.

By rebuilding the platform from the ground-up using modern cloud technology and tools, they successfully launched the initial cloud version of Fast-Weigh in December 2015, becoming the first cloud-native platform in the market. Fast-Weigh quickly gained a loyal following and has experienced exponential growth each year, now serving thousands of users.

Many of our team members have worked in the aggregate industry for much of their lives. Many of us, including Mike, have spent time working in scale houses, cutting tickets, and creating invoices for those tickets. Our team is filled with good character, decades of experience, and a great deal of passion for this industry. We feel fortunate to be part of a company with a loyal customer base and to offer a product that we are genuinely proud of.

Our team at Fast-Weigh consists of industry experts, many of whom have spent a significant portion of their careers in aggregates and construction. Several team members, including Mike, have worked in scale houses, issuing tickets, tracking trucks, and managing invoicing and accounting. With our team's solid character, decades of experience, and passion for this industry, we take great pride in offering a product that we genuinely believe in.
