Some of these businesses were established as early as 1917.
On August 5, 2005 the management team of Monsanto Enviro-Chem Systems, Inc. completed the purchase of the subsidiary from Monsanto. The name of the company was formally changed to MECS, Inc. at this time. In January of 2008, MECS was sold to American Securities, a private equity firm based in New York. Most recently, on December 31, 2010, MECS, Inc. was acquired by E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company as a wholly-owned subsidiary.
