Mitutoyo, which is still the biggest manufacturer of measuring instruments worldwide, looks back on turbulent times. The banking crisis resulted in a poor global economic climate, which also affected the organisation. “Recently, we were able to put this tiresome period behind us”, says Henk Slotboom, Sales Manager of Mitutoyo Nederland. Together with Marketing Manager Ron Meijer, he explains, exclusively for Mikroniek, the state of the affairs within the company. It is worth noting, so they claim, that Mitutoyo’s role as global metrology innovator has remained untouched. In addition, service – from general metrology training to calibration of measuring instruments – is becoming ever more important.
