MOD’s Custom Containers Suit Specific Systems and ApplicationsThursday, July 1, 2010
Meese, Inc. was founded in 1931 by Edwin Meese in Madison, Ind. In 1978, Meese, Inc. was acquired by Tingue, Brown & Co., Saddle Brook, New Jersey, the family-owned manufacturer founded in 1902 that developed the Poly-Trux® line of rotationally molded plastic carts. In 1984, the company opened its first California plant to more efficiently meet brisk national demand. Today, the company operates 23 rotomolding machines in four plants nationwide (CA, IN, OH, NJ) to provide fast, efficient delivery at the lowest freight possible all over the country. The company is currently known as Meese Orbitron Dunne Co. (MOD) with headquarters located in Ashtabula, Ohio.
MOD is a custom product manufacturer renowned for its product design expertise. The company devised and manufactures its proprietary line of material handling carts, trucks and containers and also develops custom container solutions. MOD is the first company in North America to operate two different Leonardo rotational molding systems in two different plants. The advanced system automates key steps in the rotomolding process to deliver more consistent product quality with shorter lead times while saving material and energy in the process.
Robert Dunne, President of MOD, states, “First and foremost, the people at MOD are talented, knowledgeable experts in both plastics design and molding and in material handling. Everyone on staff is focused on quality in production and dedicated to the customer. MOD engineers have earned awards for excellence in design engineering and manufacture from the Association of Rotational Molders International (ARMI) at its rotomolding design competitions. As such, the company is widely respected for its design engineering and product development abilities including the development of containers to suit specific systems and applications.”

Canvas carts have served as a general purpose workhorse for years but in many applications, the material has been replaced by rotationally molded plastic carts, though canvas is still available. These polyethylene carts and containers offer greater strength and durability along with resistance to water and weather plus easy cleanability. The Poly-Trux 50P-16R from MOD is a plastic recycling cart for both collection and transport of paper, plastic and other materials.
