The Cord Evolution

“The Cord Evolution" is our answer to current and future customer requirements.



The MEP Group has made a global name for itself as a specialist in the development and manufacture of coated yarns and fabrics for technical rubber products. At six locations worldwide, we produce a variety of highly specialized products for a wide range of industries. Wherever rubber is processed into rubber items, the products created by MEHLER ENGINEERED PRODUCTS give the necessary strength to end-use applications. Our extensive product offering is the result of our own intensive research and development combined with several collaborative projects with our customers and suppliers. Our R&D team and application engineers are the link between the chemical, fiber and rubber industries.

Mehler began in the 1930s in Fulda with the manufacture of textile reinforcements for the rubber industry.
