Welcome to The MEL Group

When the late Laurence Smith founded Melbreak Engineering in 1968, he preached customer service above all else. And that ethos remains the focus of the company as it exists today, in the form of The MEL Group. In those intervening 45 years – through both acquisition and steady, organic growth – we’ve become a total engineering solutions provider to the global aerospace and defence market, and to industry in general.


As a total engineering solution provider to the aerospace and defence sector, as well as industry in general, The MEL Group offers a broad spectrum of capabilities.
