In 2013, Mitutoyo America Corporation, the world’s largest provider of metrology solutions, will kick-off a year of celebration to commemorate 50 years of precision measuring success in America.

Mitutoyo America (previously known as MTI Corporation) was founded in New York City in 1963, as the first U.S. distributor of Mitutoyo Corporation of Japan products. Continued growth allowed Mitutoyo to re-locate to Paramus, New Jersey and later the company made the decision to officially move the corporate headquarters to Aurora, Illinois in 1988 where Mitutoyo America continues to reside.

Today, in addition to the corporate headquarters, there are sales facilities, M3 Solution Centers and A2LA calibration lab and repair facilities located throughout the U.S. In celebration of Mitutoyo’s 50th anniversary, special events will be scheduled for Mitutoyo’s valued customers, suppliers, and employees throughout the year at various locations to allow Mitutoyo the opportunity to personally thank the companies and individuals for their on-going support and commitment over the past half century.

“Mitutoyo America has prospered as a world-leader only because of the dedication and support we have received from our customers, suppliers and employees throughout the years. That’s why we want everyone who has been a contributor to our success to share in celebrating with us this next year,” says Shigeyuki Sasaki, President; Mitutoyo America Corporation.

Mitutoyo America’s 50th Anniversary Celebration is scheduled to be held in conjunction with the completion of the new 159,300 sq. foot Aurora, Illinois corporate headquarters and state-of-the-art M3 Solution Center in the fall of 2013.

More information regarding the dates and locations for the celebratory events will come in 2013.
