Postage Meter Manufacturers Worldwide[edit]

Listed below 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 used commercially are not listed.

Companies that only represented and/or distributed meters manufactured by others are not included although some may have slipped in.

The country name in parenthesis is where the company is/was located. If two country names are shown, the first is the country of origin and the second is where the machine was used. Example: Ohmer Fare, a company located in the United States, had only one machine placed into service, and it was in South Africa.
