Celebrating 30 Years of Meon: A Journey of Innovation and Customer Excellence

This year we are proud to celebrate three decades of dedicated service, innovation, and unwavering commitment to our customers.

From our humble beginnings rooted in family values to our current status as a leading provider of line marking materials and surface repair solutions, our journey has been defined by a passion for excellence and a customer-centric approach.

It all began in October 1993 when Gary Spencer, the visionary founder of Meon, embarked on a transformative journey overseas to the Batimat Exhibition in Paris. Among the array of products showcased, Gary sourced five key items, including Soppec Marking Aerosols. Recognising their potential in line marking, forestry, and road construction, Gary saw an opportunity to introduce these aerosols to the market, laying the foundation for Meon's legacy.

"As a constantly forward moving company, we don’t often take time out to look back, let alone over 30 years! It was quite humbling therefore to pull out all the archive images and take some time to reflect.

If I’m honest, my primary and overwhelming feeling was on how fortunate we have been to be surrounded by excellent clientele, supportive mentors, loyal staff, cooperative vendors and countless other stakeholder backing.

At this vantage point, looking back and then turning forward once more, the undeviating constant is our team values of Resource, Action, Passion and Trust. Read more about them here.

For now, if you’ll permit me….I’ll get back to doing the every day tasks that aggregate to something special. Here’s to the next 30 years!"
