Mitutoyo America Corporation (Aurora, IL) on Jan. 1 launched a new sales program in which it is packaging select Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs) as well as Vision Systems with related equipment and service packages at no extra cost over the price of the base machine.

Mitutoyo’s new “Gold Care” program packages peripheral equipment and multi-year service packages (representing an overall $15,000+ savings) with a larger select group of these types of machines. The program is available to US-based companies served by Mitutoyo America for a limited time period throughout the year.

Every machine group offers a “Gold Care” package that includes:

• A five year technical phone support program covering all of the machine’s software needs (explaining specific product information and answering technical support questions)
• Mitutoyo’s exclusive MeasurLink® Pro Edition software package (the industry standard in data
 management for quality professionals)

“The US marketplace has recognized Mitutoyo as the leader in metrology technology for decades,” states Matt Dye, Mitutoyo America’s Vice President of Measuring Instrument Sales. “In conjunction with this being our golden anniversary, we’re offering this packaged-pricing promotion as a thank you to industry. Because we’re closely listening to the needs of our technology buyers, this ‘Gold Care’ program allows us to refocus on simplifying how the buying process works, as well as addressing  the true “cost of ownership” issues. But an even impressive effect of this program’s planning is how we’ve taken a close look at supporting the customer in every aspect of their quality control or design engineering operations. I think the market will be impressed with our team’s strengthened recommitment toward customer success.”
