History

Unfolding possibilities

In 1959, founder Robert Austin Sr. and a group of local investors started Metals Engineering Company (Meco), manufacturing everything from fishing reel components for Shakespeare to television chassis for Magnavox.

The Meco of today began to unfold in 1969 when its folding chair line was launched, and then expanded to BBQ grills in 1971. Meco’s Manufacturing has shipped more than 141 million folding chairs, and over 20 million barbeque grills.

After 40 years of growing its grill assortment to include electric grills, water smokers, and Aussie Grills, Meco revitalized its contract manufacturing business in 2012.

Today, some of the largest companies in the world depend on Meco’s manufacturing expertise to perform beyond expectations every single day.

History shows that you can trust Meco to deliver quality products and services at a competitive cost.
