Meridian is a self-service industry pioneer, leading in innovation and precision since being founded in 1999. A fully integrated manufacturer, Meridian designs, engineers, fabricates, assembles, deploys and supports self-service solutions from our 13-acre headquarters in North Carolina. Meridian is an ISO 9001:2008 certified company and UL self-certify facility. With all processes from software development to powder coating to quality control completed in house, we proudly offer American-made interactive kiosks to a global marketplace.
Meridian’s designers use Design Thinking to create kiosk solutions that help their clients address their market needs. Drawing from their breadth of kiosk design experience, as well as the aesthetic requirements for each project, Meridian’s team creates a series of conceptual and environmental renders for review. Meridian’s experienced engineers take the desired concept and create a fully functional 3-D CAD model, accounting for every screw, weld point, component, bracket and hinge throughout the entire unit.
In-House Eco-Friendly Fabrication Process
Cold rolled steel is cut using laser or turret punch technology.
Steel parts are sent to the pemming first, or go directly to the press brake for bending.
The steel parts are welded per the fully functional 3-D CAD model created during Design Engineering.
Finish and Inspection
In preparation for paint, the steel parts are finished and inspected to create a blemish free structure.
Once the steel has been finished and checked, they are painted using high-quality powder coat before moving into assembly.
