Micro Instrument Corp was founded in 1944 by a family of German Immigrants who were tool makers by trade. The initial business model focused on developing small surgical instruments. Shortly after our establishment, considerable opportunity became available to support local industrial giants such as Eastman Kodak, Bausch + Lomb, and GM/AC Delco. As the skills of our founders got recognized, it didn't take long for the complex machining contracts in town to be sent to Micro. We are very proud of our excellent machining legacy and capabilities, which still remains a staple of our company's success.

By the late 1960's, manufacturing in the Rochester area was booming, which offered vast opportunities. Several major Micro clients strongly recommended that we get involved in the machine build business; some of which requested private meetings to detail their desperate need for reliable and efficient local machine builders. The leap into equipment design and build was taken in 1967, and has grown to be the heart of our company. From that point on, Micro Automated System's Group became a reality.

Today, Micro continues to grow and ship equipment all over the world. Utilizing a state-of-the-art 55,000 square foot facility, we provide custom machinery and tools for multi-national clients including NASA, Covidien, Walt Disney, Xerox, and Valeant Pharmaceuticals. We employ a full staff of engineers, technical writers and trade professionals with unparalleled experience in the industry. Over half of our employee have over 20+ years tenure.

With Micro's resources, engineers, facility, and dedication, we have the ability to design, build, and manage every manufacturing project to satisfy all of our client's requirements.
