In October of 1934, Mitutoyo was established in Japan with a single product: a micrometer. At the time, the philosophy of Yehan Numata, the founder, was not only to build and sell high-quality micrometers, but also to build them in quantities that made them inexpensive enough that any manufacturing firm could afford to buy them. As electronics became more and more prevalent in industry, Mitutoyo adapted their product line and began to produce digital measuring tools. Soon Mitutoyo was offering more complex and sensitive instruments, like coordinate measuring machines with accuracies in the sub-micrometer range.

Today, Mitutoyo is one of the world’s top suppliers of metering and gauging devices for a wide range of industrial, commercial, and medical applications. Mitutoyo also maintains a major presence in almost 40 countries, with more than 80 branch offices, 17 production facilities, and 20 calibration laboratories all over the world.
