Meese Opens 5th US Plant in Florida

meese-1MADISON, IN, USA — Meese (formerly MODRoto), opened a new plant in Jacksonville, Florida in June of this year. This 50,000 square foot 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, made 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 J.R. Ryan, the President of Meese.

Founded in 1931, Meese was the first rotomolder in North America to invest 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.
