Since Milwaukee Tool launched its Hand Tools expansion in 2012, its introduced more than 400 new tools and counting.

To start the year off, Milwaukee has some very exciting news to share. 

Milwaukee Tool will launch a brand new lineup of Compact Tape Measures. While continuing to deliver best-in-class durability, these new tape measures are up to 30 percent more compact than previous Milwaukee tapes and other competitors on the market.

Because of their focus on advanced next generation manufacturing technology, they now deliver a 25’ long tape in a 16’ housing. This allows for much better ergonomics while minimizing weight on tool belts. In addition, they are able to accomplish this reduction in size without sacrificing any durability and continuing a “Nothing But Heavy Duty” promise. 

These new tapes are the next generation and rolling change to our General Contractor Tape Measure lineup. The new Compact Tape Measures build off the success of this tape measure line and set the bar even higher by enhancing key features and reducing the overall size for a better fit in the user’s hand. 

Just like all Milwaukee tapes, these new tape measures continue to deliver the longest life in the industry because of proprietary Nylon Bond Blade Protection, and a 5-point reinforced frame for drop protection. Together these features make Milwaukee tape measures the most durable tape measures in the industry.
