The Meddings Group of Companies

For over sixty years Meddings has been at the forefront of engineering within the United Kingdom and most schools and colleges have a Meddings drilling machine in their training facilities. Now into the third generation, the Meddings group combines the machine tool vision alongside precision engineering, fabrication, swimming pool heaters and industrial supplies.

Meddings Machine Tools are one of an elite few machine tool builders remaining in the UK.

  • Over 180,000 installations worldwide
  • Supplying education & training facilities
  • Industrial production machines
  • Superior tool solutions
  • Over 60 years of experience
  • Quality components manufactured to the highest standards
  • Extensive range of manufacturers including Ibarmia and Strands.

Thermalec first came to life at the end of 1966 operating from a double ended mobile home in the garden of the founder Gerry Williams, who went on to become one of the best known and loved characters of the Swimming Pool industry. He and his then partner Frank Udy set up the company in Hertfordshire and very soon expanded into a small factory in Watford. Two years later they built their own factory and it was not long before they had to add an extension to that.

Following the Suez Crisis and escalating oil prices in the mid-1970’s, a drop in sales engineered a rethink of the company. The factory was sold, Frank moved on to pastures new, and Gerry Williams brought the business of Thermalec to the West Country in 1978 and continued to go from strength to strength.

In the early 1980s we started exporting to the Middle East, and today this now accounts for nearly 50% of our business.

During the summer of 1999 Thermalec became part of the Meddings Group of Companies, due to Gerry’s impending retirement. The majority of staff transferred to the new site here at Ivybridge in Devon, thus giving continuity of standards and service that Thermalec are known for.


Meddings Engineering offer a wide and extensive machining capacity range including CNC machining and CNC turning centres, plus grinding, honing, milling, hobbing, drilling and most conventional machine operations. We also offer full fabrication/welding on and off site and paint shop facilities.

Our paramount objectives are to provide the highest quality precision engineering services and complete satisfaction to every one of our customers. The Company has earned an enviable reputation for exceeding customer expectations in quality, reliability, service and value with customers as diverse as Amazon and British Rail.


Merlin Industrial Products Ltd, formed in 1994 by two engineers at the request of several local companies who agreed to support a company that they could trust and a company that could relate to their industrial requirements.

More than 25 years have passed and Merlin have now returned to the Meddings group of companies and offer a staggering number of products and services.

Merlin Industrial Products were one of the first companies to have a website back in 1996 with the main site saved to the Internet archive in 1998 the company is still run by engineers who can understand technical jargon and liaise with the shop floor and purchasing department to provide quality products at economical prices.
