Our history

iMat formerly known as Mat Technologies started in the 1990s manufacturing and trading in Cape Town. With the growing demand for iMat quality products, a branch was opened in Johannesburg. With two manufacturing plants based in Cape Town and in Johannesburg iMat has become a market leader in the developing, manufacturing and support of access control equipment.

Based on the fact that iMat designs and manufacture products in such a way that both the end user and the installer are pleased with the reliability, ease of operation and installation, iMat products have become the first choice among users.
