About us

As a next step in its commitment to strengthen its position as a world player in the geosynthetics market, Mattex is heavily investing further in the expansion of its state-of-the-art, vertically-integrated non-woven geotextile facility in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This Non-Woven GeoMatt range is complimenting the existing Woven TerraMatt geotextile range. 

A wide range of Woven and Non-woven needlepunched and Thermally Bonded geotextiles are manufactured. Other geosynthetics like GCL, DrainMatt, CellMatt and reinforcement fabrics are grids are on offer 

The Mattex group started the production of polypropylene slit film woven fabrics already in 1996. The group has two state-of-the-art manufacturing geotextiles sites in Jeddah and Al Jubail, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and 1 production facility in Dubai, UAE.  The total production area of the manufacturing sites has increased rapidly to 191,000 sq. m. The group has warehouses and representative offices in Australia/New Zealand, Europe, the Middle East, China, USA and Africa and is tanks to its strategic location exporting all over the world.

The ingredients to the success of Mattex are:

  • Unmatched quality levels, thanks to the fully vertical integration of the newest equipment, know-how and team effort.
  • Leaders in the industry in terms of innovation, customer service and achieved volumes ensuring a loyal customer base.
  • Continuous growth, which has taken us to one of the leading positions in the industry.

Mattex Geosynthetics has direct access to its raw materials which are manufactured next to its production sites. With total control over the properties from the development of the polymers, through the yarns/fibers extrusion, and the manufacturing of the geotextiles on the latest, state-of-the-art equipment, Mattex offers a tremendous advantage to geotextile customers. In line with the Mattex-group philosophy we have a proven reputation to deliver very high quality, with roll after roll uniformity. Mattex has unparalleled tight manufacturing control which results in a very low standard deviation in the properties which offer excellent M.A.R.V. properties within the woven and nonwoven geotextiles.

Mattex started its production of geosynthetics with polypropylene woven geotextiles. These woven geotextiles are used for separation and stabilization of pavements and unpaved roads, erosion control, reinforcement of earthen structures, and for separation and support in other civil engineering applications.

This woven range is now being expanded with the production of a wide variety of non-woven, high- tenacity geotextiles, used in applications such as filtration, separation and shoreline protection.

To ensure the best possible product development and sustainability, Mattex has recruited geosynthetics experts, with up to 25 years of experience, to direct the development, manufacturing, marketing, and technical application support of our geotextiles.

Mattex’s vision is to rapidly grow the geotextiles business and to expand into the manufacture and distribution of other geosynthetics products.
