MEX was set up by Stephen Ninnes in Brisbane in 1993 primarily to conduct maintenance management training courses. It became obvious during these training sessions that there was a need for a Windows based computerised maintenance management software system suitable for small to medium sized maintenance operations. Development began and in 1995 the first version of MEX was released.
Since 1995 the business has grown substantially and now employs 30 staff. MEX has more than 4500 users of their software around the world and their products have increased to also include FleetMEX, MEX Ops and MEX Mobile.
The company strives to provide its clients with computerised maintenance management software that is economical, user friendly, Microsoft compatible and backed up with full and effective customer support. In Australia, MEX is used across a wide range of industries. These include:
- Food processing industry
- Hospital industry
- Hotel industry
- Local councils
- Manufacturing industry - light and heavy
- Mining and minerals industry
- Resort industry
