Expanding industrial mining and matting systems into Africa

COBA International acquired the successful, family owned business, Matco, in 2015. This acquisition marked the coming together of two matting giants in the South African market. With its international reach, COBA injected into Matco a culture of management vision that positioned the brand for positive future growth.

COBA’s primary focus is to broaden the market reach of its industrial mining products as well as the acquired Matco range for entrance matting systems and to increase its footprint in neighbouring African countries. The long-term mission is for both Matco and COBA Africa to become household names among design professions across the African continent.

Many successful projects have already been completed in South Africa as well as in other African countries such as Ghana.

“We look forward to working with our existing and future clients in new and emerging markets across the continent,” says Morné van der Westhuizen of COBA Africa.
