About Us

In the beginning there were just three, two brilliant chemists and a talented salesperson. Despite their very different gifts, they shared the same passion for making a difference in the world. Together they agreed to use their expertise to develop, produce and sell, non-toxic, biodegradable industrial chemicals that would be safe for the environment and safe for people. MEC was born in 1990 before the terms “green” and “bio-preferred” were popular much less well known.

Over the years, MEC has grown to become a more diverse company providing in-house parts cleaning utilizing MEC’s safe chemistry and also offering residential products. MEC uses dip tanks to strip paint, de-rust and clean a variety of metal items including parts from antique cars, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, radiators etc. We also clean industrial items such as, heat exchangers, hydraulic cylinders, electric cables, molds, dyes, interrupter assembly parts and much more. Our residential products include Composite Deck Cleaner & Enhancer and House Wash.
