Matco has become part of COBA International group of manufacturing & distribution businesses, setting the stage for positive change.
In 2015, Matco officially became part of the globally successful COBA International group of manufacturing and distribution businesses. COBA International, headquartered in the UK, has businesses located in nine countries in Europe, Asia and Cape Town, South Africa. Matco, based in Johannesburg, is one of South Africa’s leading floor matting suppliers whose products are used in both commercial and domestic environments.
While the ownership has changed, it has been very much ‘business as usual’ for Matco. COBA also has an established matting business in Cape Town, supplying entrance matting and floor safety products for many different sectors, including commercial, catering, leisure and the industrial sectors.
Together the two companies are trading under the umbrella of COBA Africa (Pty) Ltd but continue to market products under the Matco brand. Bringing the two leading flooring brands together has enabled the pooling of expertise and resources, and customer will benefit from an even wider choice of matting. With facilities in Cape Town and Johannesburg, the company can efficiently supply customers with products to support all sorts of building/refurbishment projects throughout South Africa.
“We now offer a wider choice than ever before, with many options available ex-stock alongside our custom-made entrance matting,” explains Managing Director, Nicole Herron. “This is supported by enhanced customer service to distributors and end users, as well as competitive pricing. Being part of COBA is a very positive step forward for Matco, and is benefiting our customers across all sectors throughout Africa.”
