Business Mission


A company very close to its customers

Established in 1886 as a metalworking shop and ironmongery, MEA has grown to become an internationally operating group of companies based in the south German town of Aichach, Bavaria. We supply to industrial customers and the building trade, manufacturing in both Western and Eastern Europe as well as in Asia. The MEA Group is well-positioned worldwide through its sales companies, distribution partners on all continents and global logistics network.

Our aim is to help our customers become more efficient, which is why finding ways to make their work easier is a central element of our thought processes and practices. The MEA Group is divided into strategic business units, enabling us to focus on our individual target markets and meet our customers’ highly specific requirements as effectively as possible. Each business unit has a high level of expertise in its particular field and is thoroughly familiar with its users’ specialised needs as well as with the challenges confronting them in their daily work.

Our goal: to make our customers more competitive

Our points of contact are principally planners, engineering firms and architects. We provide builders and construction companies with an extensive array of products and services that meet even the most exacting requirements in terms of safety, functionality, ease of use, economy and longevity.

The majority of our products are distributed by specialist building materials suppliers. We have set ourselves the goal of helping our customers optimise their processes and maximise their performance by resorting to MEA products. In line with our corporate policy, the benefits of our many years of experience, the know-how which derives from intensive cooperation with our suppliers and our productivity gains in the value-added chain are all shared with our customers.


Multi-material competence

MEA supplies products and solutions manufactured from a variety of materials. This multi-material competence is quite exceptional and gives our customers a decisive advantage: an optimised solution which is appropriate to the material – every time.

Our customers profit from security, efficiency and long-term dependability thanks to a unique combination of:

  • A family managed enterprise now in the hands of the fifth generation
  • An experienced, international management team that reacts flexibly to changing situations in the market and positions the Group optimally to master the challenges of the future
  • A financially sound parent company as well as highly committed managers and dedicated employees

The MEA Group – meeting of tradition and modernity

MEA was founded in Aichach, Bavaria, 130 years ago. We believe that experience and continuity are two of the key reasons for our success. The internationally appreciated virtues of German workmanship are fundamental to our identity, particularly:

  • Solidity
  • Quality
  • Durability
  • Ecological awareness
  • Innovation

Our customers regard these qualities as a valuable basis for business and a guarantee of sustained reliability, professionalism and competitiveness.

We, in turn, value the advantages of an open, fair dialogue in business matters that unites the benefits of globalisation with respect for the rights of all human beings. Our decision-making processes and daily working lives are guided by clear-cut, ethical principles of corporate management, whether dealing with customers, employees, suppliers or competitors.


It is our firm conviction that, in the end, it is the people who work for – and show dedication to – a company that make it a success. With this in mind, we offer our employees broad scope for development on both a professional and a personal level and give them the freedom they need to show initiative and be creative. The MEA Group encourages and supports its employees on the path to achieving their personal goals – after all, their experience and qualifications are our company’s true wealth. The result is a strong team which is capable of meeting the requirements of our customers and the market quickly and accurately. MEA is committed to continually improving its performance on every level. Our aim is to respond even more effectively to our customers’ needs, to ensure that our employees continue to be motivated and take pride in their own success as we live up to the trust placed in the company by its shareholders.
