PLS laser tools were developed to give contractors the ability to transfer critical layout reference lines and points for any job site task. All PLS laser tools are self-leveling, compact and durable laser alignment tools. Every contractor has basic alignment tasks to perform on the job site. No project can be completed without layout of the work, installation of material and quality control. Each of these functions is accomplished by determining plumb, level and square reference. PLS lasers provide bright, crisp reference points and lines, for quick and accurate layout. Built by contractors for contractors, PLS tools were developed out of necessity by professional carpenters with over 50 years of experience in commercial and residential interior and exterior layout. PLS founders were contractors first before becoming manufacturers of the finest point-to-point and reference line layout tools in the world. Now 20 years later, PLS employs approximately 85 staff at our manufacturing facility in San Rafael, California. We are dedicated to providing our customers with dependable alignment tools and customer service that sets the industry standard.
When PLS first opened its manufacturing facility in 1995 Nick and Nora, our unofficial “lab technicians,” were at the office everyday. Required walks and mandatory ear massages kept our focus in the right place and in the right perspecitve. Contractors stopping in to inquire about our laser tool would leave with a healthy dose of wagging tails and sniffs. Sadly, Nick and Nora have moved on to a higher jobsite but their spirit remains with us.
