Meiko UK celebrates 30th anniversary

Written by: Edward Waddell
Meiko UK, the British arm of the German equipment manufacturer, is marking 30 years since it started trading.

It was launched by Bill Downie in January 1994 with just ten employees in a small unit near Heathrow airport. It is now a multimillion-pound provider of warewashing and food waste management solutions to all sectors of hospitality.

Paul Anderson, chief executive of Meiko UK, said: “Meiko’s sole objective is to make the world cleaner and environmentally better. This means listening to its customers, changing and adapting to the challenges facing them from decade to decade, whether it be staffing, food trends, the economy or the needs of the planet. This ethos carries over to Meiko UK and continues today.

“At Meiko UK we could not be prouder to celebrate three decades supporting our industry with innovation and service that genuinely make a difference to people's lives. Here’s to continuing the legacy we have at Meiko, a way of doing business which survives the test of time.”

Meiko UK will be celebrating their 30th anniversary at the HRC Show on stand H1811.
