Celebrating 80 years on…
Mitutoyo, a global corporation with a presence in more than 80 countries, started from humble beginnings in 1934 in Japan. The journey was long and hard to reach the point where the company became recognised as one of the world’s leading vendor of dimensional measuring equipment, a position it has held for many years now. Today, many internationally renowned companies depend on Mitutoyo products and services to ensure consistent and high quality in their manufacturing operations, as do many thousands of other firms, both large and small.
Part of the reason for this success is that Mitutoyo seeks to be more than just a supplier of high-quality measuring equipment, but more like a valued partner of its customers in their drive for successful manufacturing operations. Mitutoyo’s service to customers is renowned as being the best among metrology vendors, and with good reason – specialist technical personnel operating from strategically placed sites across the world are always ready to offer advice and assistance, especially in times of stress when the value of excellent support is truly measured and appreciated.
One thing we know for sure about our customers, both actual and potential, is that they are all looking for the best value available in measurement products, with first-class backup support services. In short, something that can only be provided by an established vendor with a proven record of commitment to their local market. After all, when the success of your company depends in large part on reliable, traceable measurement to national standards, with the service and supply backup of strong group resources, there really is no other choice.
An important factor is that Mitutoyo is a private company and so is unencumbered by shareholders looking for short-term profits, and therefore the company has always been able to pursue research and development programmes that, although time and investment intensive, have seemed to offer the best chance of leading to long-term results of lasting benefit to industry, and therefore to society in general.
Mitutoyo has been active in Europe for over 45 years and Sales and service facilities at more than 85 sites in 33 countries including M³-Solution Centers in 11 countries, Metrology Institutes in Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom and Calibration Laboratory services in Germany Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom
