Over the past 10 years MECO has grown its portfolio of drug manufacturers, oil and gas producers and food and beverage companies in Europe. They tap MECO for water purification systems that produce pure water critical to their operations. From highly purified water used for injectable drugs to potable water serving workforce on oil rigs to distilled water in bottles on grocery shelves, MECO’s sole focus is engineered products for water purification. The company holds 27 patents for a variety of water purification technologies and continuously develops and enhances those technologies to meet the growing demands of industries they serve.
MECO is a manufacturer of engineered products for water purification. Founded in 1939, MECO launched its business with the patent for using vapour compression distillation for desalination of seawater in the early years of offshore oil exploration and the US Armed forces in World War II. From there the company steadily and methodically broadened its scope and capabilities to become a world leader serving the biopharmaceutical, food and beverage, oil and gas, industrial, military and power generation industries. MECO is headquartered in Mandeville, Louisiana where, in its newly constructed, state-of-the-art facility, the company engineers and manufactures capital equipment for every critical utility required by the industries it serves. In addition to Louisiana, MECO has fully staff offices in Houston, Texas, Singapore and Abu Dhabi, UAE. Its newest office in Ireland is at Roselawn House, University Business Complex, National Technology Park, Limerick.
