Already represented in more than 90 countries around the world, the MEIKO brand and MEIKO products are tapping into one of the world's last major growth markets: Southeast Asia.

More than a decade ago, the Offenberg, Germany-based company delivered what was, at that time, one of the world's biggest dishwashing systems to Kuala Lumpur airport for Malaysia Airlines' catering operations.

With MEIKO already operating its own offices in Australia (Sydney) and India (Bangalore), this reinforces the company's role as a global player in world markets.

MEIKO Australia-Pacific Pty Ltd. commenced its business activities back in 2007. The Australian regional company is now headed by Sören Gleitsmann, who previously worked at MEIKO's headquarters in Offenburg. The company is also marketing and distributing cleaning and disinfection appliances in Australia.

Meiko (Asia) Techcentre Pvt. Ltd. was also established in 2007. Headed by Virendra Dutt – who previously held a managerial role at the company that used to represent MEIKO in India – Meiko (Asia) Techcentre Pvt. Ltd. is headquartered in the Indian city of Bangalore and has a branch office in Delhi. As well as distributing MEIKO products in India, its reach also extends to Sri Lanka (dishwashing technology), Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal.

MEIKO Managing Director Burkhard Randel commented: "Our ongoing commitment to the Asian market was recently highlighted by the opening of our Regional Office South East Asia in Kuala Lumpur which – together with our long-established companies in China and India – puts a solid emphasis on the newly industrializing markets between Thailand and Indonesia.”
