Micro-Mesh Engineering Are Making Significant Strides In Egypt

Member News

Micro-Mesh is a perfect example of how Made In members are leading the way in their industries. As a leading UK filter manufacturer, Micro-Mesh Engineering have been constantly expanding for decades and now exports out to over 30 countries.

Most recently, on Wednesday 29th May 2019, Micro-Mesh closed a very significant deal in Egypt, signing an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with the Ministry of State for Military Production and Advanced Engineering Solutions, to manufacture and supply their renowned air filters for use in gas turbines in Egyptian power stations.

James Underwood, Managing Director of Micro-Mesh, recently journeyed out to Egypt to meet with the Ministry of Military Production, agree to the terms and sign the MoU.

“We were also there to talk with the Ministry about how we’re going to get this company up and running,” says Mr. Underwood, referring to the new Micro-Mesh facility in Cairo and the efforts being made to bring the company’s signature innovation and expertise to the region. “This is a major milestone for our company as we look to significantly expand our footprint in some of the world’s fastest growing markets.”

But this isn’t the only source of excitement for Micro-Mesh. Whilst in Egypt, Mr. Underwood was pleasantly surprised to learn of the company’s nomination for a Board of Trade Award, being presented with this latest accolade by the Secretary of State for International Trade, Liam Fox. The award recognises the company’s huge efforts in trading in overseas markets.

Mr. Underwood goes on to describe how Micro-Mesh are highly experienced in international trade, adding: “We’re an Export Champion, recognised on the Department of International Trade Export Champion Scheme list.”

In a wider sense, the signing of the MoU is the ideal first step for the company’s expansion into the Egyptian market, and is also a great stepping stone into the wider region which they estimate to be worth over £20m. Mr. Underwood sums up these exciting times to come by stating:

“We are committed to growing Micro-Mesh, and will continue to invest in our facilities and staff around the world.”
