MITUTOYO is one of the leading manufacturers of precision measuring equipment worldwide. The company now operates in over 100 countries. They offer a vast range of measuring equipment products for sale as well as training, calibration and repair services.
MITUTOYO was established in 1934 by Yehan Numata in Kawasaki, Japan. Originally it sold just one product; the micrometer. It soon expanded and added other measuring products including callipers and dials. In the 1970s, with the fast development of technology, the company developed larger and more sensitive measuring instruments. Statistical process control (SPC) was also included. Today MITUTOYO offers over 6,000 products. MITUTOYO is a leading company and operates in over 100 countries in Asia, USA, North America and Europe.
