Our two legs. The core business of the MEC Group, since its inception, is products such as you want them. We manufacture as desired and take home the goods for you in the best way. For our help, we have had in 25 years our own office in China with our own staff. This gives us direct and close contact with our manufacturers and increased control over the process. Their mission is to negotiate the best conditions for the best manufacturers, a result that our customers come to share. We are also equally proud of the partnerships we have with established and professional manufacturers who stock finished goods for processing. We have also worked out solutions that will simplify your everyday life.

Purchase of existing goods from stock supplier. For many years, the MEC Group represents the Dutch wholesaler Giving Euope in Scandinavia. Giving Europe is well known for its active work with product tests and certificates and is the industry leader in the field. Already in the beginning, almost 20 years ago, the value of cool products that were beautifully produced was realized. The fact that the prize will also be nice when the concept wins in the long run is a matter of course. All stock intake is tested. Nowadays are among other things XRF-scanners on site in both China and Holland for chemical tests. At the office, five full-time jobs only work with administering the continuous updates and the approximately 1500 product tests that are carried out annually.


What is being tested? All products involve a certain risk, for example, of materials, substances, limit values, use, safety, environment and more. A product that at first glance seems simple, like an umbrella, needs to be tested for a variety of materials and also the function. Like all other industries and products, have profile products to relate to different restrictions and rules.

Trading & manufacturing on your order. In the case of “small trade” of individual orders, made according to wishes, it is not always possible to test each individual order. Instead, we then work with a number of selected suppliers, whose manufacture and materials meet the requirements. Every request should be made in cooperation with the client so that consideration can be taken from the intended use area, target group, special requests or regulatory requirements and more. Upon request, inspection of neutral third party may be conducted or special production round is tested. For this, we cooperate with an accredited global testing institute. Frequent products For recurring product models but in customer’s own design at Every occasion, each product has a prioritized supplier. This works with approved materials where documentation can be presented. These reports are included, updated regularly and are available in our internal database. Unique products Manufacturing entirely in the customer’s desired design requires a different procedure. Documentation is then taken in connection with the request to the manufacturer. Testing can be done on the specific production round in cooperation with the customer if and when desired.


We take producer responsibility. The MEC Group has been working with imports of goods from Asia for almost 40 years. It has given us a solid and relevant experience of all these issues that arises. Freight and logistics solutions are an equaly large part of the offer as the actual product. When you compare us with eg your own direct import, think about it too the many different points to be handled along the way, such as: • Inspection of manufacturers • Domestic freight in China • Possible shipping via Hong Kong • Goods and transport insurance • Imports to the EU according to current rules • Shipping to end customer • Quality control • Complaints Handling • Currency Management • Code of Conduct • VAT handling in China • ... and so on. The MEC Group is a member of industry and import organizations Swedish Industry Association for Advertising and Profile Products (SBPR), PWA Promotional Wholesalers Association, PSI, REPA, El-kretsen, CopySwede.
