MeKo is now called MeKo Manufacturing

Expert for laser material processing celebrates the 30th company anniversary

 Dr. Clemens Meyer-Kobbe founded his laser-cutting company in 1991. This year, MeKo has its 30th company anniversary. To celebrate its birthday, the contract manufacturing company is getting an new company name and a modern corporate design.

Dr. Clemens Meyer-Kobbe founded his laser-cutting company on May 1, 1991. For the past 30 years, MeKo has been a successful service provider in the world of laser material machining. With over 250 employees and a huge range of machining processes, MeKo has established itself as a multifaceted component manufacturer and has built a strong reputation in its market.

 A few months ago, Dr. Jakob Dohse joined the management team and has been tasked with managing the expansion of our sites and the digitalization of business and production processes. As the husband of Dr. Meyer-Kobbe’s eldest daughter, the continuation of the company in family hands is guaranteed.

 Long ago our company was registered in the German Commercial Register with its official name “MeKo Laserstrahl-Materialbearbeitungen e.K.”. Since this time, MeKo has expanded significantly and offers now much more than just laser machining. To reflect this fact, the company officially adopted the modified, international name of “MeKo Manufacturing e.K.”

The MeKo logo has remained unchanged for most of the company’s existence, with only minor tweaks to the color and layout. So to mark the company’s anniversary, our logo and all our promotional material has been given a modern design. The new official name is also incorporated into the new logo. As well as the official main company logo, we have also developed the new branding “MeKo MedTech” for the medical technology division and the branding “MeKo MetalWorks” for the industrial and sheet metal division.

We are also celebrating our company anniversary with the opening of a new extension to our premises. The new building will provide additional 2400 square meters (26000 sqft.) of space for cutting-edge production processes, research and administration. The extension is scheduled for completion in November 2021.

About us

Company portrait

MeKo is a globally active supplier specialized in laser material processing. Our Quality Management is ISO certified and passes FDA inspections. We manufacture medical components for all medical branches like Cardiology, Radiology, Neurology, Ophtalmology and Urology.

We have more than 30 years of experience in laser cutting, laser drilling and laser welding of metals and other materials. More than 100,000 different components have been manufactured already, like stents, heart valve frames and many other components made from metal and other materials.

With our extremely precise laser systems, we process flat and tubular materials such as stainless steel and nickel titanium - as well as new bioresorbable materials like magnesium and polymers. More than 2,000 materials and tube sizes are available in stock.

With our modern ultrashort pulse lasersystems, we achieve smallest tolerances. The USP-systems are used for micro components or microhole drilling for Drug Delivery Balloon Catheters with drill-diameters from 2 µm on.

Besides laser cutting, welding and drilling, MeKo offers a variety of secondary processing operations: heat treatment, passivation, electropolishing, shape-setting and all kinds of mechanical processing.

MeKo has been a pioneer in stent manufacturing since 1995. Today, we are one of the largest stent contract manufacturers worldwide and considered as the quality leader. For this, MeKo uses unique processing operations to provide medical technology companies with individual high quality solutions.

MeKo‘s passion is to maintain and develop technological leadership in order to offer clients added value for their products. Our in-house research develops new customer-oriented solutions in long-term cooperations. MeKo is dedicated to technological leadership for precision and quality to offer customers an added value for their products.

For example, RESOLOY® is a unique magnesium alloy for bioresorbable scaffolds and is freely available for MeKo clients. VASCULOY® is a nickel and cobalt-free alloy with optimal material properties for cardiovascular implants. The component surfaces can be further improved with surface modifications. LowElast optimises the crimping properties of L605 stents.

Upon request, the components can be subjected to a 100 % visual control in order to ensure perfect quality. They can be minutely analysed in the MeKo laboratories and tested with different visual and mechanical processes. Our ISO 13485 certification makes approval for medical products easy to obtain. As MeKo uses its series production machines for prototyping, the series production can be smoothly ramped up to large quantities without additional validations.

Since it was founded in 1991 by Dr. Meyer-Kobbe, MeKo has been successfully manufacturing components for its clients. The company is located in Sarstedt, near Hannover, with more than 200 employees. Thanks to the 24/7 manufacturing and our rapid prototyping orders can be processed in the short-term. The components are shipped worldwide.
