Company Watch – COBA Africa

COBA Africa, based in Johannesburg, is one of South Africa’s leading commercial entrance matting manufacturers and suppliers, and a long-established name that has been associated with many prestigious architectural projects, not least in the glamorous Sandton district.

COBA Africa, a company that has been owned and managed by generations of the Bertz family, recently entered an exciting new phase as it became part of the globally successful COBA International group. Like COBA Africa, COBA has a long and exemplary pedigree in the matting business, with state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution facilities in Europe and in Cape Town, South Africa. While COBA Africa now has access to exceptional resources which will only enhance its product offering, the company remains unchanged with Managing Director, Nicole Herron (whose father started the COBA Africa business nearly 40 years ago) still at the helm, with all the same familiar faces.
