We still believe Made-In-America is the only sustainable strategy to uplift the lives of all Americans.
You know everything tastes better when cooked on the grill and grilling is a year-round pleasure. Kids will even eat vegetables if they see they’ve come off the grill! And your grill of choice? It should be a Meco grill. As President Mark Proffitt puts it, “Meco is one of the very few remaining USA Manufacturers of BBQ Grills. We are the originator of the classic square charcoal grill, and have been continuously manufacturing BBQ Grills in our factory in East Tennessee since 1969.” Something tells us that after 44 years, they’ve got it down.
“Meco was started in 1959 by our current owner’s father in Greeneville, Tennessee,” reminds Mark. “Robert Austin Sr. and a group of local investors, started the company as a metal forming, finishing, and stamping factory. One of the paramount goals of the company was to provide work for the people of Greene County who were at the time suffering from very tough economic conditions. The people and the company flourished as Meco produced everything from bomb fins and fishing reel components, to chassis for Magnavox televisions. In fact, Meco’s Contract Group continues to provide other US Manufactures with quality components and services every day!”
So whether you’re in the market for a charcoal grill, an easy to use smoker, or even an electric grill, the good folks at Meco have you covered. And you can rest easy knowing that Meco not only stands behind their products, but as a company they stand for something we can all believe in. “Robert Austin Sr. was a man who believed faith is not something worn on the sleeve for others to admire, proudly states Mark. “As the company grew, charitable donations and community service grew with it.
Mark offered this as something he and his employees hold especially dear: “Honesty, Integrity, and Fun. We’re a family company, creating products that families use to make outdoor grilling flavorful and easy.”
