The name MERO is an abbreviation for Mengeringhausen Rohrbauweise (Mengeringhausen's tubular structures).


The MERO company was founded by Dr Ing. Max Mengeringhausen in Würzburg, Germany in 1948.[1] In 1957, the Mero construction technique, which uses hollow steel tubes connected into steel nodes in a predetermined geometry, was presented at the Berlin International Construction Fair.[1] In 1988, Mero (UK) plc was established to service customers in the United Kingdom.[1]

Then in February 2006, following the acquisition of Schmidlin Facadetechnology AG in Switzerland by TSK Group, Mero (UK) plc's German parent company, Mero (UK) plc changed its name to Mero-Schmidlin (UK) plc.[1]


The company's activities are as follows:[1]
