MEF is a leading UK distributor with a focus on data centres and semi conductor factories. The company was founded in 1987 and employs 70 people in Edinburgh, Dublin and Belfast.

Over the past 35 years, MEF has paid special attention to the further development of its product portfolio in order to meet the high and diverse customer requirements. This focus has led to the company being particularly known in the market for innovative and high-quality solutions as well as excellent service.

"With the acquisition of MEF, we have reached a strategically important milestone. The broad product portfolio and the distinctive expertise of MEF's employees perfectly complement our existing offering. We are thus ideally positioned for the planned billion-euro investments in the data centre and chip factory sectors," explains Bruno Reufels, CEO of the Niedax Group.

"After only a few discussions, we were able to determine that the Niedax Group is the right partner for our company. Our entire staff is looking forward to the cooperation and promising future as part of this strong group of companies," says Mike Mearns, Managing Director at MEF.
