Cheapie Automation was founded in 2012, producing automatic doors and elevators.
By 2014, we had expanded to also include all types of item production solutions, ranging from simple automatic bee-harvesting devices all the way to complete, start-to-finish plastic box production lines.
In 2015, to reflect our vision of providing all types of industrial equipment and related services, we changed our name to Cheapie Systems.
In 2016, the company was restructured into a group of four companies. Cheapie Automation was reformed as one of the companies, with Advanced Mesecons Devices, Greapie Elevator Co., and Cheapie Traffic Control forming the rest.
Later in the same year, Cheapie Traffic Control was merged into Advanced Mesecons Devices and Cheapie Automation was renamed to Minetest Controls.
