Matta has recycled more than 60 million kilograms of PVC and rubber in the last 30 years, since the company was started by then-Ōtaki mayor Murray Scott in his garage.
The company produces safety matting for playgrounds and industrial use all over the world, and brings a strong sustainability approach to a very niche sector.
In this episode of Flying the Fern, host David Downs talks to managing director Brent Harris about:
The DIY early days and pioneering recycling systems in the 1990s
Growing from a small Ōtaki startup to having overseas offices and international business
How being from New Zealand aligns with their focus on recycling and opens doors
Why they keep manufacturing in New Zealand, despite it being cheaper to go elsewhere
