By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Office Services & Supplies industry with the lowest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry. A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of net income, so the stock is more expensive compared to one with a lower P/E ratio.

Pitney Bowes Inc ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 3.16. Acco Brands Corp is next with a a P/E ratio of 7.30. Interface Inc ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 14.21.

Acme United Corp follows with a a P/E ratio of 17.21, and Knoll Inc rounds out the bottom five with a a P/E ratio of 17.63.
