Taft-Peirce Manufacturing Company

The Taft-Peirce Manufacturing Company was a pioneering sewing machine company established in 1875 at Woonsocket, Rhode Island, United States. As the sewing machine industry gradually commoditized, Taft-Peirce leveraged its toolmaking capabilities to become a supplier of gauges, such as various kinds of go/no go gauges, to the manufacturing industries, and a supplier of engineering and toolroom work on a contract basis. The company was dissolved on 6 October 1995.
