Mitutoyo America Corporation has broken ground for a new corporate headquarters building located in Aurora, Ill.
The 159,300-square-foot, multi-million dollar facility will include a M3 Solution Center offering the ability to provide interactive product demonstrations; a A2LA Accredited Calibration Lab, supported by fully staffed field service and repair departments; abundant warehouse space necessary for timely distribution of product, parts and accessories; a premier educational facility (Mitutoyo Institute of Metrology), for all training and instructive metrology resources; and free flowing office areas to encourage interdepart-mental collaboration and communication.
The new facility will accommodate all the departments at Mitutoyo, so everyone functions cohesively as one all-encompassing team to meet the needs of the customers, says Shigeyuki Sasaki, president.
The new facility is expected to open in the fall, which coincides with the celebration of Mitutoyo America Corporation’s 50th anniversary.
