Its flexible and responsive approach enables Mecon to design and fabricate new solutions to age-old problems. It works often with clients who may have depended on long-established ways of undertaking certain processes but had never found alternatives. Mecon challenges this acceptance of ‘the way things are done, accompanying its clients on a continuous journey of innovation.

Mecon focuses on delivering improved ways; more customised structures or machines than the standard solutions that clients often adopt.
