Meiko expands into Central America


Global foodservice equipment company Meiko has announced Meiko Clean Solutions Mexico as its newest venture.

The German-based company is seemingly eager to kick off its international expansion, following a similar foray into Japan in June.

This comes after the company was forced to put a halt to some overseas operations near the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. It closed its Chinese factory altogether.

Meiko reported that it has worked through speciality retailers in Mexico and surrounding countries for many years and can rely on renowned international customers, projects, and long-term partnerships across many industries.

The new company headquarters in Mexico City now combines the cleaning and hygiene expert’s sales and service activities for Central America, including the Caribbean.

With the founding of this headquarters, the actions under managing director Uwe Walter del Toro have been consolidated and selectively expanded.

He commented: “For me, Meiko stands for technology, quality, and long-term partnerships like no other company in the industry. Those are characteristics that are very appreciated and welcome in Mexico and throughout Central America.

“Moreover, our qualified team of employees provides important local knowledge. That’s why I’m very confident that we’ll quickly expand our position in the region.”
