Share Article

Mecan USA Inc., the US subsidiary for Mecan Imaging Inc. (Japan), today announced the new E-commerce site dedicated to US customers.

When Mat Kitahara (CEO of Mecan Imaging Inc., and Mecan USA Inc.) retired from Polaroid where he spent most of his career, he was 50 years old with 3 children who have yet to graduate from college.

His future looked bleak to everyone around him. However, contrary to the gloomy atmosphere surrounding society at large, Mat was absolutely positive about his days ahead of him. Instead of trying to get hired by another company, he jumped on the bandwagon, and started his own internet retail company.

It was 1999. The time was right. After a few critical years in which the company could have gone bankrupt at any moment, the fledgling company started to show signs of growth. Now in 2011, Mecan Imaging has become one of the major microscopy internet retail companies in Japan.

Now Mat's journey continues. Responding to the frequent contact from potential oversees customers, Mat decided to establish Mecan USA Inc in California, the place where he spent his youth back in the 70's and considers it to be his second home.

And today Mecan USA Inc. announced the new web site dedicated to US customers.

The site offers a wide variety of microscope related products such as:

  • Digital microscope adapters (more than 15,000 units sold!)
  • Microscope micrometers
  • Microscope LED lighting devices
  • Microscope slides
  • Stereo-microscopes

and much more.

Furthermore, the quality of all Mecan products are assured by a Japanese technician and proven to be the highest of industry standards.

Mecan has been offering microscope equipment and knowledge to the Japanese market for the last 10 plus years. Now, Mecan not only offers the same expertise to the domestic market, but also to customers all over the world. It follows the maturity of Mecan's corporate philosophy which states “Our planet is a beautiful residence for all the earthling creatures”.
