Who We Are

     In 1946 David Menkin, seeing how frustrated his wife, Paula, was with holding a squirming baby while trying to get baby oil onto a cotton ball, came up with an idea. He took apart a hand lotion pump and attached a small dish to it. He stuck the contraption through the widemouth lid of a glass jar, and the Menda Lasting-Touch Pump was born. Paula loved it, and soon all of her friends wanted one too.

     Menkin turned to his friend, Ben Darling, who helped turn the new dispenser into a mass produced product. Combining the beginning of both their names, they called the new company Menda. The Menda brand name is now synonymous with innovation and quality since 1947. Menda is now famous for its high-performance line of dish type liquid dispenser pumps and bottles. These pumps and bottles are now widely used in the industrial electronics assembly, cleanroom, beauty, and medical applications. The Menda brand is recognized around the world as the standard for the one-touch liquid dispensing. People do not ask for a dispensing bottle, they ask for a Menda bottle!

     However, Menda is no longer just a dispensing bottle company. In September 2000, Menda became a division of Desco Industries, Inc. (DII), a leading manufacturer of ESD control products. DII is proud to be an employee-owned company with an unrelenting commitment to quality, performance, and customer service. DII is well known and respected for manufacturing and has been providing quality products to the electronic assembly industry for over 20 years. You will see that the Menda product offering now includes not only the bottles we are famous for, but also specialty tools such as: Soldering Tip Voltage Tester, Circuitracers, Probes, Spudgers, ESD Vacuums, Cable Ties, Wire Threader, ESD Brushes, ESD Dissipative Gloves, Silicone-Free Lotionand much, much more!
