MEI was founded in 1969 by Mars, Inc. in response to the demand for better coin recognition technology for vending machines. In 2003, MEI acquired Conlux, the Japanese leader in coin mechanisms and bill validators. MEI was acquired by Advantage Partners and Bain Capital in 2006. Crane Co. completed the acquisition of MEI Conlux Holdings in December 2013.
MEI holds the world's largest installed base of unattended payment systems, handling over 2 billion transactions per week in more than 100 countries. The company developed the first electronic coin mechanism in the 1960s, followed by the first electronic non-contact bill validator, and more recently its credit card capability and vending management solutions software.
MEI payment systems' technology is considered the most reliable choice in hundreds of real-world applications and has earned the best performance rating in the market. Through its commitment to quality and innovation, MEI continues to provide the highest reliability and state-of-the-art products for the vending, gaming, amusement, transportation, retail and kiosk markets.
