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

By the late 1960's, manufacturing in the Rochester area was booming, and this growth offered a vast increase of 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 Group was 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 Bausch + Lomb. We employ a complete staff of engineers, technical writers and trades 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.
