International Postage Meter Stamp Catalog/Introduction/Meter Manufacturers Worldwide

Postage Meter Manufacturers WorldwideEdit

Listed here are companies known to have manufactured at least one postage meter used at some point to frank actual mail. Manufacturers of machines that were tested on dummy mail only and never saw commercial use are not listed.

The list is not meant to include companies that are only distributors or representatives of meter manufacturers and not manufacturers themselves, but some may have slipped in.

The country name in parenthesis is where the company is/was located. If two country names are shown, the second is where the machine was used if not in the country of origin. Example: Ohmer Fare, a company located in the United States, had only one machine placed into service, and it was in South Africa.
