The company

Founded by Jim Oakley, an accomplished design engineer, in 1977, Mecmesin remains a privately owned company, based in Slinfold, West Sussex, UK, which has expanded worldwide, with regional offices in the USA, China, Thailand, Germany and France.

In addition, we have a global network of distributors in more than 50 countries able to provide technical expertise and after-sales support to customers locally.

The focus of the company has always been to provide high quality test solutions, which are an affordable alternative to the many higher-priced systems available, enabling small and large businesses alike to undertake quality control checks on their products without compromising on precision and accuracy. The rugged design of these systems mean they can withstand tough factory conditions and perform tests at the point of production rather than having to use expensive laboratories to ensure consistent manufacture.
