   Madras Engineering Industries was

   founded in 1966 by Mr E.K.Parthasarathy.

   We began production of Manual Slack

   Adjuster components in 1982 and in

  1999 the first Automatic Slack Adjusters

   were produced. From foundation the

   focus has been on becoming a world

   class supplier to the Original Equipment

   and Replacement markets. Our patented

   self-adjusting automatic slack adjuster

   is now supplied to many of the world’s

   leading OEM and the Parthasarathy

   family still own and run the

   business today.






   MEI research centre at Maraimalai

   Nagar site is a world class R&D facility.

   A full suite of test rigs and

   environmental chambers is

   complemented by our Link

   Dynamometer and Fatigue Rigs.

   We can complete the full SAE J1462

   test procedure in house and are

   constantly benchmarking our products

   to SAE and ECE R-13 standards

   and beyond.













   Purpose built in 2013, our foundry at

   Pillaipakkam employs Disamatic

   moulding lines and robotic handling

   to produce 700 MPa strength SG Iron

   with over 5% elongation.

   Our foundry ensures supply of the

   400 tonnes of cast housings

   we require each month.














   Vertical integration is key to our

   philosophy. As well as our own cast

   housings, we produce all critical

   components in house at our Ambattur

   site. Special purpose horizontal

   machining centres ensure that

   housing machining is controlled

   in-house at our assembly facilities

   at Maraimalai Nagar and

   Mahindra City. 

















   Our seven station no fault forward

   assembly lines allow full flexibility and

   can accommodate single piece build of

   over 600 different part numbers.

   As well as use of Poka-Yoke systems

   our staff are trained in Six Sigma for

   continuous improvement.

   All parts go through end of line test

   routines to ensure 100% reliability.





















   We supply to OEMs and aftermarket

   stockists in more than 60 countries

   worldwide. Main stockholding is in

   our United Kingdom warehouse and

   our experienced technical sales

   and logistics team can ensure

   prompt delivery around the globe.










   With extensive industry experience

   our sales team offers field assistance,

   installation advice, training and

   after-sales support. Our aim is to

   offer an unrivalled service to Fleets

   in support of our Distributors.
