Mehler Engineered Products GmbH
The MEP Group has made a global name for itself as a specialist in the development and manufacture of coated yarns and fabrics for technical rubber products. At six locations worldwide, we produce a variety of highly specialized products for a wide range of industries. Wherever rubber is processed into rubber items, the products created by MEHLER ENGINEERED PRODUCTS give the necessary strength to end-use applications. Our extensive product offering is the result of our own intensive research and development combined with several collaborative projects with our customers and suppliers. Our R&D team and application engineers are the link between the chemical, fiber and rubber industries.
Mehler began in the 1930s in Fulda with the manufacture of textile reinforcements for the rubber industry. MEHLER ENGINEERED PRODUCTS (MEP) is a part of KAP Beteiligungs-AG, with The Carlyle Group as the latter’s main shareholder. MEP employs roughly 650 people and encompasses more than 175 years of experience in the manufacture of high-quality technical textiles. The MEHLER ENGINEERED PRODUCTS Group provides an unparalleled global lineup in the area of technical textiles. We work closely with our customers to find innovative ways to enter growth markets and today are represented by six production sites on three continents. Our headquarters is located in Germany and is the base for such central services as finance and R&D as well as process development and efficient fabric and yarn production facilities. We also have locations in the USA, the Czech Republic, India and China.
The MEP Group is distinguished by its global presence in the area of technical textiles. With our worldwide network of six locations on three continents, we rapidly and reliably supply our customers with technical yarns and fabrics. Our production facilities and local contact personnel are always close to our customers. We supply technical yarns from our facilities in Fulda, Hessisch Lichtenau, Jilemnice, Martinsville, Bangalore and Shengze. Our central production site for technical fabrics is located in Fulda. This worldwide lineup comprises our global factory network.
To achieve the best possible raw material costs and to simultaneously offer our customers a diversified product portfolio with attractive prices, we source our products both locally and internationally. To coordinate the global delivery requirements for our individual plants, we perform our global sourcing from our central Fulda headquarters. This function is locally supported by the individual plants. Finally, to best meet the needs of our customers, we have established a worldwide sales team in the form of key account management. This key account structure forms the basis for our global service.
