MeKo History

More than 25 years of experience in quality

1991 How it all started

In May 1991, Clemens Meyer-Kobbe started MeKo as a one-man business.

The laser job shop was located in a garage, about 10 kilometers south of Hannover, Germany.


1992 Our First Machines

Our first machine was a 300 W Nd:YAG laser. And in 1992, we purchased a used 500 W CO2 laser.

Two clean rooms, class 10.000 and 100.000 are ready to use.

2007 Second Building Expansion

Through the next expansion MeKo increased the building size to 7,800 m2 (~84.000 sqft.).

Still at the same location, the new main entrance moved to the other side of the building. Therefore, the address had to be changed:
