MEAF Machines B.V. is since 1947 a manufacturer of sheet extrusion lines and thermoforming machine for various industries, including food packaging, dairy products, automotive industry and others.  MEAF’s originated as a manufacturing company for production equipment for various utensils and plastic products (including sheet, jerry cans, lifebuoys, bollards and even surf boards). The first steps towards being a production company are set quickly by MEAF’s original founder, Mr. Adriaan Hovestadt, as he starts to produce plastic products, whilst maintaing the constructing and manufacturing of the machines himself!

MEAF’s philosophy when it comes to building machinery, is rooted in an unfailing urge to continuously innovate and find solutions, combined with the viewpoint of a (plastic) production company (being until the beginning of the 1990’s one of MEAF’s core-businesses!). This unique philosophy results in a bridge between the customer’s requirements and efficient, operator-friendly and flexible equipment. At the very core of every MEAF machine you will find:

  • Operating efficiency, due to compact build of machinery & operator friendly, in-house by MEAF developed, operating system;
  • Customisable, due to machine configuration adjustment possibilities prior to order and easy adaptations after purchase;
  • Sustainable by reducing production space, lasting equipment lifetime and reduction of energy consumption!
