Innovative Solution Leaders

As a Women Business Enterprise that has realized a significant level of success, it is important to continue to grow our business through recognition as an excellent diversity supplier. Corporate America has identified the need to diversify their suppliers, providing economic advancement for many MBEs and WBEs.

As a beneficiary of their commitment, Meadows has grown from $18 million in sales in the 1980’s to over $90 million today. Our products are designed to adapt as your business evolves. Architectural elements, moveable walls and systems furniture fit together in a variety of ways: when business needs inevitably change, we reinforce that there is no need to landfill tons of waste and start over.

Not only can Meadows assist in supplying energy efficient lighting, but from packaging to delivery of product, efforts are placed on eliminating waste by managing the details of packing, transporting, and the delivery process in the most green, cost effective manner possible.

Rosalie Edson’s Commitment – “It is my personal commitment and our corporate philosophy to never be satisfied with our efforts, but always strive for the highest levels of proficiency and professionalism.”
