Home > About MEE
Our company name serves well as a basic description of our purpose. MEE, as we are often called, was founded in 1995 to fill a local need for an independent, high-quality materials characterization laboratory for advanced materials and critical components.
From our laboratory roots, MEE has rapidly developed into a leading failure analysis laboratory in the Upper Midwest. Referrals from satisfied customers have generated steady growth of new projects and clients. Our comprehensive online Handbook of Analysis Methods for Materials has also fostered a growing national and international clientele.
Our technical staff has experience with metals from aluminum to zinc, as well as, polymers and ceramics. Whether carbide cutting tools, soft solders, injection molded plastics, or microscopic laser welds, the MEE laboratory staff knows how to properly prepare and examine samples to obtain the optimum materials characterization data.
Failure analysis and advanced research projects are directed by registered professional engineers. These engineers specialize in the behavior of materials and how their structure affects service performance. Comprehensive reports combine reliable analytical data with a sound engineering perspective to provide practical, cost-effective solutions to our customers.
The future is bright for MEE. While continuing to focus on our strength in solving material problems, we will continue to grow in expertise and analytical capabilities. Excellent customer service and close attention to detail will remain cornerstones in all of our endeavors.
