AURORA, IL—Mitutoyo America Corp., a global provider of measurement and inspection solutions, is pleased to announce the ground breaking for a new corporate headquarters building located at 945 Corporate Boulevard in Aurora, Illinois.
The 159,300-square-foot, multi-million dollar facility will include an M3 Solution center offering the ability to provide interactive product demonstrations; an A2LA accredited calibration lab, supported by fully staffed field service and repair departments; 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 inter-departmental collaboration and communication.
"Our goal is to provide high-tech, best-in-class metrology services and solutions to our customers and their subsidiaries,” says Shigeyuki Sasaki, president; Mitutoyo America. “The new facility will accommodate all the departments at Mitutoyo so everyone functions cohesively as one all-encompassing team to meet the needs of our customers."
To assist with the funding for the new construction Mitutoyo turned to the city of Aurora and a newly approved Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district. This district was developed to stimulate economic development, enhance community vitality through creative growth solutions and provide incentives to corporations to attract private development. Without the support from the city of Aurora and funding through this TIF district, the new headquarters building would not have been pragmatic for Mitutoyo.
The new facility is expected to open in the Fall of 2013, which coincides with the celebration of Mitutoyo America’s 50th Anniversary.
