Meech International, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of static control, web cleaning and compressed air technology is to expand its Oxfordshire headquarters with a new 29,000 sq ft production facility at Tungsten Park – just metres from the main building.
The new unit houses all of Meech’s production, purchasing, order processing and customer service. There are approximately 40 staff working there, with the original building retaining all other aspects of the business.
“We’re delighted with the addition of the new unit,” says Chris Francis, CEO at Meech. “Our expansion into the new building demonstrates the substantial growth we are seeing to our business. It enables the teams to operate even more efficiently with one another and gives each of them the space they require to continue driving growth further still.
“The space this frees up in the existing building provides a platform for growth, as we now have more room to facilitate research and development, which we are investing more and more into. This allows us to continue to provide innovative, customer-led solutions to the industries we work in.

“We have seen substantial growth as a company over the years, and the new unit gives us a platform to continue developing our R&D resource to meet future demand. We’re excited to see how this change in structure will benefit Meech and what opportunities may arise.”
