Empire Level was founded way back in 1919 and has become a leading creator of everything from levels and layout tools to squares and caution tape. Over the years, Empire has strengthened their company and product lineup with six strategic acquisitions between 1975 and 2010. These changes expanded their production capabilities and offerings to include (in chronological order) squares, wood levels, caution tape, precision tools, miter boxes, advanced engineering, and mahogany levels. Today, Empire dominates the retail, contractor supply, and DIY markets with their proven alignment, layout, and awareness products. Because skilled industry pros like you understand the value of getting the job done right the first time, the accuracy of tools and equipment is always of the utmost importance. Since Empire Level places the same focus upon the accuracy of every tool they design, we're proud to carry their leveling, alignment, notification, and measurement products here at Ohio Power Tool.
