ME International Installation GmbH was founded in 1980 by our managing director Mr. Rolf Müller.
At that time, ME enjoyed a partnership with Diamond Automation USA (today a part of the MOBA Group/Big Dutchman), one of the world's leading manufacturers of egg grading, packaging, and processing machinery and cage systems. But this was only the beginning. In the next few years, ME International saw significant growth.
Today ME International enjoys partnerships with Petersime, the world's leading supplier of incubators, hatchery equipment, project services, and turnkey hatcheries; with CID LINES, a successful manufacturer of cleaning agents and disinfectants for the poultry production; with Innovatec, the leading provider of production improvement solutions for the Hatchery Industry; with MS-Technologies, manufacturer of egg-washing- and sanitizing-machines, and other major companies worldwide.
2013 the idea of poultry LED lighting for poultry was born. Together with scientists, Rolf had an idea how to improve the wellbeing of chicken with light. They decided the best way was to give them the light they have in their natural environment. The result of the scientific studies was Pollux poultry lighting system. Since then the product range has developed and improved. And the succes story continuous.
"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau
(US-philosopher and writer)
Anyone who knows me also knows that nature and animals have fascinated me since my childhood. I was able to observe the animal’s behavior for hours. I watched ants, birds, snails and everything I could find around our house. Sick animals, no matter how small, were carefully collected and cared for. I brought sick waterfowl and wild rabbits to the vet on my bike and took care of them around the clock - taking them to school and my nursery to give them 24-hour care.
I'm not sure if my interest in animals was even aroused because of my father's job. Since my childhood, I’ve spent time in the office and in the workshop of our company. I spent hours at the office's large meeting table, painting pictures and listening to my father's business calls.
I´ve visited poultry farms, fairs, and suppliers with my father. My swing hung in the old warehouse of our company during the winter. This way the boundaries between our home and the company, if there were any, blurred. At school, I gave lectures on chickens and eggs, and even during my economics graduation I gave presentations on the economics and attitude of Araucana chicken.
After finishing my school and working for an international aluminum extrusion plant for a few years, it was clear to me: I want to go home! And that's how I started my career in the poultry industry at ME International. I have known many customers, business partners, suppliers and products since my childhood. The more exciting it was now to get to know the industry in detail.
My dad enabled me to do a job I would not want to miss in my life. In 35 years he has created a stable and established business, where work becomes fun and business partners become friends. I can proudly tell you that quality is our top priority. From the quality of working conditions for us and all our employees to the quality of our products for our customers. And with just as much pride, I can safely say that working with all its economic ups and downs is also not a duty, thanks to you, but an important and welcome part of life.
I am thankful for this solid foundation, for all the diligence that has invested in building this. He is always a role model to me and an inspiration to this day and my strongest teacher and partner.
But I also would like to thank all our customers for their trust, close cooperation, and communication. For the fact that you value and demand quality unconditionally.
Thank you for all the past decades and all still coming.
Yours, Nina Müller
