The clear and uncompromising goal to provide the best quality product and value available anywhere has driven Mitutoyo, from humble beginnings in 1934, to become the premier supplier of metrology equipment in the world.
Including development, production and sales the company operates in more than 100 countries. In Japan alone, Mitutoyo operates two development sites,10 production facilities, two metrology institutes, five calibration laboratories, seven service centers and seven M³ Solution Centers in addition to the Kawasaki headquarters and sales offices.
Internationally, the Mitutoyo Group has a major presence in almost 40 countries, maintaining more than 80 branch offices and national distributor networks, 65 M³ Solution Centers, 17 production sites, six research and development laboratories, 12 metrological institutes and 20 calibration laboratories. Additionally, there are Mitutoyo representatives in approximately 60 other countries.
This extensive worldwide infrastructure means that our customers enjoy the assurance of local support and world-wide technical advice and logistical backup to keep their vital measuring equipment in effective and profitable operation with the minimum of downtime, wherever they are. This is especially important for our multinational customers who need the same level of support for their partners and suppliers in foreign countries as they receive from Mitutoyo themselves.
