A company that celebrates its 40th anniversary this year has established enviable organic sales growth over the past five, and is now focused on developing its next range of products. Mecmesin was established in 1977 by Jim Oakley, an accomplished mechanical design engineer. The company was originally a distributor for a range of engineering based products but early on saw the opportunity to focus on force and torque measurement. Under the direction of Robert Oakley (Jim’s son) it began to manufacture its own range of test equipment and has grown to become an internationally recognised supplier of force and torque test systems and instrumentation, becoming a key supplier to thousands of companies around the world. It features a new VectorPro™ technology platform, and launched its first universal testing machine at Control 2017, the OmniTest 5.0. Mecmesin remains a privately owned UK company, headquartered in West Sussex.
