AusPress acquires MEI assets

We are excited to announce that AusPress Systems Pty Ltd (AusPress) has entered into an agreement to acquire the assets of Marine Equipment International (MEI) under a new entity AusPress MEI Pty Ltd (APMEI) effective 11th May 2020.

MEI has been a leading supplier into the Australian marine industry since 1984 and has a long and enviable record of supplying quality products to the Marine (both Defence and Commercial), Industrial, Offshore, Energy, Mining and Engineering industries and in particular supply of specialist products to the Australian Navy and its prime contractors.

AusPress has been supplying quality Stainless Steel drainage and pressure products across Australia and New Zealand to the Commercial, Industrial, Medical, Resources, Mining, Marine and Food Processing industries since 1992.

This new arrangement will offer MEI customers a greater range of products (including copper press, tooling, Stainless Drainage and Polypropylene Civil Drainage) as well as a truly national distribution service with sales staff and technical support in each state. It will offer AusPress customers additional support and products in the marine sector as well as a second distribution centre in Sydney.

“This is an exciting time for both companies” said Jason Nelson, General Manger of AusPress and AusPress MEI. “MEI has such a fantastic reputation in the marine sector and has developed a large customer base. This acquisition will allow AusPress to further develop the MEI business by tapping into AusPress’ national coverage. At the same time, it gives AusPress’ customers on the East Coast an additional dispatch point with a warehouse in Fairfield, NSW ensuring faster product delivery times”
