Today Meductic is home to a few quaint businesses including a bed and breakfast and gas station. A long time restaurant closed its doors in 2004 after the opening of the new 4-lane Trans-Canada Highway, which caused a dramatic drop in traffic on what is now Route 165. Sabian Cymbals Limited, a Meductic business, is well known on the international music scene as a supplier of finely crafted cymbals. Sabian is a major employer in the area, creating jobs for many people.
