History

MESCO was founded 1990 in the town Weil am Rhein, Germany by Thomas Best and Juliane Heyn-Best. MESCO has since been working every day on exciting electronic development projects, for more than 25 years.

In the center of the MESCO portfolio are hardware and software development for factory and process automation. Especially Industrial communication, functional safety as well as explosion-proof designs are our strength.

Over the past few years MESCO added several branch offices and subsidiaries, and today there are about 70 employees working at the MESCO group worldwide.
