About the BME Family

In 2015, Thomas Meade took his reputation for exceeding expectations and expertise as a process engineer to create Bulk Material Equipment (BME). What was once a one-man show, BME has experienced rapid growth thanks to our vision and methodology.

As engineers, we first focus on the particles that are being processed. What is the bulk density? What is the size? Is it fragile? What’s the angle of repose? Is the moisture content high? These are just some of the questions we need to answer before we continue.

Then, we can determine which technologies will suit your needs. Are we providing options to fix a process issue? Are you expanding production capacity? Will the design need to be scalable as you expand in the future? Or are do you need an EPC+ contractor for help on a greenfield project? At the end of the day we are engineers that seek to solve material handling issues, the only difference is we can also sell you the equipment.

We look forward to serving you and are committed to using best practices to make sure our world class manufacturers and service providers exceed all expectations.
