MEI Opens New Corporate HQ




(PRESS RELEASE) The new corporate offices of MEI, manufacturer of machinery for processing ophthalmic and sunglass lenses, has officially opened.

The facility is located in Ponte San Pietro (Bergamo), Italy, a few kilometers from the former corporate offices in Valbrembo. It includes 10,500 square meters of covered space, 8,000 of which is dedicated to production and warehousing, and 2,500 set aside for offices, demonstration labs and training rooms.

The project for the new headquarters grew out of the need to address the company’s constantly growing manufacturing output and the number of company employees – currently 85 – who required more and more space. 

Stefano Sonzogni, MEI president and technical director, said: “Above all, the focus of the new headquarters is to ensure even greater production and therefore to be able to offer even faster delivery of the machines on order.”

The building features a solar PV plant, a system of self-adjusting LED lights, in-floor heating, its own restaurant and a 10,000 square-meter outdoor parking area. 

Sonzogni said: “Our company and its goals are founded above all on people – this is why their wellbeing is an investment priority”.


The new MEI offices are located strategically along one of the main highways serving Bergamo and the surrounding areas.
