About MEI

MEI by the Numbers

1000s of customers served

30 years of experience

15 locations across
the country

Comprehensive
Safety Program

We have only one overriding objective when it comes to the work we perform and the safety of those who perform it; to send every employee home safely to their family, friends and loved ones at the end of each working day. No other result is acceptable, period. In order to achieve this result, we place a premium on training all of our employees in keeping with our Best Known Methods (BKMs). Additionally, each and every employee, no matter their length of service or job title, has the authority to stop any job at any time should they feel as though they, their co-workers or the customer equipment in our care and custody is at risk.

Uncompromising Customer Focus

Customer satisfaction is both our lifeblood and our most intrinsically rewarding experience. We constantly seek to provide new and innovative solutions to our customer’s problems and needs in an effort to earn and keep their business.
