Western Tool Supply is now a dealer for DISTO handheld laser distance measuring tools.

Leica Geosystems has announced the appointment of Western Tool Supply as a dealer for DISTO handheld laser distance measuring tools.

Based in Salem, Oregon, Western Tool Supply is a large dealer organization with 34 retail locations in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and California. The company also supports direct purchase at its Internet store (www.westerntool.com).

“We are very pleased to welcome this strong, professional dealer network to our expanding nationwide retail organization for DISTO products,” said Jack Wolf, vice president for consumer products at Leica Geosystems.

DISTO is a family of handheld laser distance measuring devices that provide point-and-click measurement of distance, area and volume, indoors or outdoors, with an accuracy of ±3 mm (1/8 in) at ranges up to 100 meters (330 ft). "DISTO is perfect for professionals and do-it-yourselfers who measure more than a few hours a week, need to measure places that cannot be reached with a steel tape, or want to export measurements directly into a PC," said Wolf.
