The Numat story

The first steps of our company were taken by father and son duo Peter and Mike Judd. They established Numat in the mid-1990s after seeing a strong need for dependable safety surfacing products for the education markets.

With a hugely positive response to these products the company quickly found its feet. In the years since we have expanded into other market sectors and introducing new products for the agricultural industry, gym and automotive applications.

We started off in a small shed – a two-man operation with the vision for matting solutions that went beyond the surface. Now, with over 30 team members, a global network of suppliers and nationwide sales and service coverage, we continue to step ahead.
