About Us

A Brief Outline of the History of MEADEN
Meaden began manufacturing in a four car garage on Kedzie Avenue in Chicago in 1939. The newly formed company was very active in manufacturing for the government during the second world war. This growth soon forced the company to relocate to larger quarters. The Meaden family purchased land on Chicago’s South side and built a new and modern (for the time) manufacturing facility. This building was expanded two additional times to keep pace with the ever growing needs of the company. In the late 70’s, Meaden was again out of room, but without space to grow. With those thoughts and planned expansion a necessity, a plot of land was purchased in Burr Ridge Illinois and a new building was designed. In 1979, the Meaden family moved into 40,000 square feet of modern manufacturing space twenty minutes outside of downtown Chicago. In the 90’s, expansion was again required. Today, Meaden stands as a premier example of world class manufacturing. We welcome your visit at any time. We can be easily reached from two nearby airports, served by all major highways.
The Forms Industry
n the late 50’s, Meaden began supporting the forms industry. We are the originator of both the serrated die and the mini perf slitter wheel. Neither of these items are patented. This was done intentionally to allow our industry to benefit from this new technology. Today, Meaden has distribution outlets in 16 different countries throughout the world. We pride ourselves in the fact that the majority of our products are in stock and ship within 24 hours of placing an order. This, along with our big selection in inventory, places Meaden as one of the largest suppliers of products and accessories for the printing and converting industry in the world.
An Import Leader
Long ago, Meaden realized that it was not practical to try to reinvent the wheel. With that philosophy, Meaden began to seek "Trade Partners" that were well established manufacturers of premium, high quality products that would compliment our growing arena of manufactured goods. Today, we are importing products and representing some of the best manufacturers in the world. Examples would be the line of machinery and equipment developed in Germany by SchoberTechnologies. This line of "New Generation Style" tooling can be found running on more presses than that of any copy cat brand that is on the market today. The "Sisprint Quick Change Air Bar" is another example of a premium labor saving device that is available in North America only through Meaden. We also import and distribute additional knives that continue to compliment the broad line of wheels that we produce here in Burr Ridge.
