MADISON, Ind. — Rotomolding company Meese (formerly MODRoto) opened a new plant in Jacksonville, Fla., in June of this year, the company reports. The 50,000-square-foot plant is the fifth U.S. plant for Meese.
“The addition of the Jacksonville plant means we can reduce shipping costs for our Southeast customers while staying better connected to all of our customers throughout the U.S.,” says Dan Rodriguez, national sales manager.
Meese also launched its new website at www.meese-inc.com in July and says it will soon add e-commerce capabilities.
The company’s name change to Meese, made effective May 7, is a “nod to our company’s heritage and is just the beginning in our company’s plan for future growth,” says J.R. Ryan, the president of Meese.
Founded in 1931, Meese says it was the first rotomolder in North America to invest in fully automated rotational molding systems, adding two “Leonardo” machines in 2008.
Meese says its line of Poly-Trux, Bulk-Trux, Shelf-Trux, Utility-Trux and Tilt-Trux are built to serve specific hauling, transportation and storage needs of customers in a variety of industries such as laundry, recycling and materials handling.
The company says its newest line of products includes the Linen Locker, created for secure and safe indoor/outdoor collection of bulk items.
