About us

Welcome to the COBA Africa website, which is packed with all our latest floor matting and safety products.

Matco is now part of the globally successful COBA International group, headquartered in the United Kingdom with over 30 years’ experience in the matting manufacturing industry. The last two years has seen exciting developments within COBA’s matting business in South Africa.

In 2014, COBA Plastics (Pty) Ltd acquired Rubaloy, a Cape Town based company specialising in the manufacture of recycled rubber flooring products. Expansion continued in 2015 when Matco, a long-established matting and flooring business based in Johannesburg joined our ever-evolving COBA family.

Bringing together all our respective market leading brands, expertise and resources, we now trade under the umbrella of COBA Africa (Pty) Ltd operating from our facilities in Cape Town and Johannesburg. Our prime locations give us a logistical advantage. We can efficiently supply customers throughout South Africa, from the North West of the region to the Western Cape.

As you will see from this website, our product range is diverse and extensive. There are flooring and matting products for many different environments. From durable anti-slip GRP flooring and high quality, impressive entrance mats, to safety matting for industrial, catering or leisure areas. With so much choice, you can be assured that Matco has the perfect, competitively priced solution for your building.

If you are responsible for health and safety in your organisation, then we have also included some useful information on standing safety in the workplace. Find out how anti-fatigue/anti-slip matting can help to reduce musculoskeletal disorders and accidents in the workplace. Read our case studies too.

Matco is not just about flooring and matting. We also supply a range of safety knives in our Moving Edge collection.

Our knowledgeable sales advisors are just a telephone call or email away, and they will be delighted to help with your matting, flooring or safety knife enquiry.
