Meese Opens 5th US Plant

Meese (formerly MODRoto), recently opened a new plant in Jacksonville, Florida. This 50,000-sq-ft plant is the fifth US plant for Meese and is located conveniently and strategically between I-95 and I-10.

“The addition of the Jacksonville plant means we can reduce shipping costs for our Southeast customers while staying better connected to all of our customers throughout the US,” says Dan Rodriguez, national sales manager.

Meese also launched their new website at in July and will soon add e-commerce capabilities.

The company’s name change to Meese, effective on May 7, 2018, is a “nod to our company’s heritage and is just the beginning in our company’s plan for future growth,” says Meese President, J.R. Ryan.

Founded in 1931, Meese invested in fully automated rotational molding systems adding two “Leonardo” machines in 2008. These rotomolding machines produce parts more efficiently with less waste, combined with the ability to control extremely tight tolerances, thereby producing more consistent parts than traditional rotomolding machines.

Meese’s line of quality Poly-Trux, Bulk-Trux, Shelf-Trux, Utility-Trux and Tilt-Trux are built to serve specific hauling, transportation and storage needs of customers in a variety of industries such as laundry, recycling, and materials handling. Their newest line of innovative products includes the Linen Locker, created for secure and safe indoor/outdoor collection of bulk items.

Additionally, Meese has certification for both EPA and CARB fuel tanks and their in-house award winning Engineering and Design team can create custom designed products to accommodate any need.

Meese is a member of the Tingue family of companies. As a Tingue family company, Meese draws from the company’s more than 115 years of global manufacturing experience accumulated since the founding of Tingue, Brown & Co. in 1902.
