At Mitutoyo future developments in measuring technology are based on the success of 80 plus years in business.
Today’s international leader in its field with a product range of more than 5000 high-tech devices and machines started in 1934 with just one single tool: a simple mechanical micrometer.
Mitutoyo’s company founder Yehan Numata succeeded in establishing this micrometer – proprietarily designed and manufactured – as a manifold reference product he started broadening the scope of his attention by including other areas of measuring technology.
Over the following years and decades the company evolved to become one of the leading Japanese manufacturers of devices for length measurement presenting the broadest range of products in the field.
In the early sixties – after successful introduction into the American market – further expansions in Europe followed.
Thus the company was positioned in the best possible way to enter a new era of measuring technology: the introduction of electronics gaining ever more importance in the seventies. And just like the mechanical devices the new electronic form measuring instruments, vision measuring systems and coordinate measuring machines carrying the Mitutoyo logo proved most convincing to the customers all over the world.
