Meet The Team - Matcon Americas

Published on 27 November 2018

At Matcon we are proud to supply some of the largest, most famous household brands and small manufacturers. All our customers, regardless of the size of installation, receive the same dedication and support wherever their head office or factory is located. While the Matcon Head Office is located in the UK, we have a number of regional offices around the world and have a strong history of providing local services across Europe and in the USA, China, Singapore and India.

Matcon USA

On 19th July 2017 Matcon Americas opened a state of the art facility in Delran, New Jersey providing world class test plant facilities and after sales parts, but our History in the US goes back for further than that.

Based upon a growing business demand to support the US Pharmaceutical market, Matcon established offices in New Jersey back in 1991. For nearly thirty years, that local presence has allowed us to respond to the needs of the marketplace and while our presence has changed over the years in size and location to cope with a more diversified industry base; our US location has always been instrumental in supporting the several hundred installations in the region.

Across Matcon, we are extremely proud of the office and factory facility that was opened in 2017, Matcon Americas in Delran, New Jersey. With spares inventory, service assembly workshop and state-of-the-art test plant, we can be more responsive to our customer’s needs than ever before. This investment into the US market also aligns with our growing business in the wider range of industries across North, Central and South America.
