Measuring 50 Years

Marposs Corp., a supplier of precision metrology equipment, commemorated the 50th anniversary of its founding in North America earlier this spring. 

The North American headquarters in Auburn Hills, Mich., home to more than 130 employees, is one of the 79 offices located in over 20 countries. The company’s parent, Marposs S.p.A. in Bologna, Italy, employs more than 2,600 people in manufacturing, sales and service centers around the globe.

According to Marposs president, Ed Vella, the perception of measurement and inspection in manufacturing has undergone a dramatic shift. “Fifty years ago when Marposs Corp. was established, ‘gaging’ was an ugly word—a necessary evil,” Mr. Vella says. “Manufacturers knew they needed gaging to help monitor and control quality. But frequently, they resented it and made it an afterthought. Today, the majority of our customers understand that by partnering early on with their gaging supplier, they can experience increased productivity, reduce cost in manufacturing and shorten new component launch time.”

Congratulations to the company and its employees on this milestone.
