MATO – Lubrication Equipment


MATO – Lubrication Equipment

In 1906, the business began its operations in Frankfurt, establishing its initial production facility. Twenty years later, the product range expanded, initiating the production of lubrication systems.

Two years thereafter, in 1928, the company introduced hooks tailored for coal mining. Subsequently, the focus shifted towards manufacturing lubrication equipment, setting the trajectory for the company’s future direction. MATO’s lubrication equipment is designed to optimize the usage of lubricants, providing ease of use, speed, and safety in operation, tailored to industrial requirements.

Currently, Mato operates in two primary areas: lubrication systems and solutions for belt maintenance.


Innovative products from MATO define the advances in the maintenance of conveyor belts and in the handling of lubricants and fuels. We shape technical standards and open up new, more productive options for users.

Our strategy is geared to staying true to the principles of MATO‘s corporate philosophy.

Today, as in the future, we will ensure that our products keep Technology in Motion through innovative approaches and solutions.


Our products are widely used in safety-related applications and ensure smooth and efficient function for our customers. This can be, for example, long conveyor belt systems in underground mines, which are also used for transporting personnel, through to commercial aircraft whose landing gear must be reliably lubricated.

Uncompromising quality assurance, which covers the entire supply chain up to the dispatch of the products, is therefore essential.

In 1998 MATO introduced the DIN EN ISO 9001 Quality


Just a few years after its founding in Offenbach, the company began exporting to neighboring countries. The products of both divisions quickly gained international prominance.

MATO recognized early the importance of having a direct presence close to their customers in key markets.

Over time, exports consistently expanded. As early as the 1980s, the company set up its own subsidiaries, some of which had their own production facilities, in Great Britain, South Africa, Spain and France. These were followed later by Australia, the USA, Russia, Ukraine and
