About The Company
Since 1912 the Perfect Measuring Tape Company has provided precision measurement and inventory systems to customers throughout the United States and in more than 30 countries. We strive to provide the textile, construction, and medical industries with best quality tools at competitive prices.
A recipient of the prestigious President’s “E” Award for outstanding commitment to strengthening America’s global competitiveness and the Ohio Governor’s Excellence in Exporting Award, our reputation for quality is unsurpassed. We are proud to manufacture and assemble measuring tapes in the USA.
As we move into our next 100 years, be assured that our commitment to quality, accuracy, affordability, and dedication to serving our customers is as strong as ever.
Family-owned and operated for over a century, the Perfect Measuring Tape Company (PMT) was founded in 1912 by Andrew Joseph Bohnengel, who emigrated from Germany with only a suitcase full of belongings.
He settled in Toledo, Ohio, married, and with his savings built textile-finishing equipment to process wool fabrics for his customers. During the next decade, he invented, patented, and built several types of textile-related machinery, among them two machines used to manufacture paper measuring tape.
PMT still operates these very machines today, printing and cutting measuring tape for the world’s textile and apparel industries that is the standard for accuracy and inventory control of fabrics and rolled goods.
Over the years we have added many other measurement devices to our product catalog, which we supply worldwide. Our measuring tapes and tools are found in construction and industrial sites, hospitals, retail clothing stores, science and research labs, tailoring rooms, schools, carpenter’s workshops, oil rigs, auto repair shops, and maybe even your garage!
PMT is the recipient of numerous awards, including the President’s “E” award for U.S. exporters. We are also a proud member of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).
Our company has been successful through the years because we have always taken care of our customers. This is our central mission now and into the future. When you call us, you will talk to a specialist with years of experience– not a recording or a far-off call center.
PMT is not only a supplier of measuring tools to many different industries, but also a provider of manufacturing services to engineers, fabricating companies, and inventors with specific measuring needs or new product ideas. We take pride in ushering our clients from idea to final product. Call us today to learn how we can help you design and manufacture a product vision into reality.
