Low-Cost Laser Distance Measuring Tools Available at Lowe's Stores 08.29.2002

August 29, 2002
Leica Geosystems has announced that its DISTO Tape handheld laser distance measuring tools are now available nationwide through over 700 Lowe's building supply stores.

The DISTO Tape is a lightweight handheld device that uses visible laser beams to make fast, easy measurements of distance, area and volume, with 1/8-inch (3-mm) accuracy, at ranges up to 300 feet (100 meters), indoors or outdoors.

The DISTO Tape is being featured in the Lowe's Tool World department as part of a major initiative focused on productivity improvements with laser tools. Leica Geosystems has designed a new demonstration point-of-purchase (POP) display and packaging design for the Lowe's stores, and is providing sales training for Lowe's Tool World store personnel.
