In June, Meese (formerly MODRoto) opened a new plant in Jacksonville, Florida. 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,” said Dan Rodriguez, national sales manager.

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

The company’s name change to Meese, made effective May 7, is a “nod to our company’s heritage and is just the beginning in our company’s plan for future growth,” said 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.

Meese’s line of 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. The company’s newest line of products include the Linen Locker, created for secure and safe indoor/outdoor collection of bulk items, as well as FDA-approved X-ray metal detectable containers for safer use in the food manufacturing industry.

Additionally, Meese has certification for both EPA and CARB fuel tanks, and its in-house award-winning engineering and design team can create custom products.
