About Us

We make intelligent water systems

At MATTEN, we strive to make water technologies simple for sustainable water resources, by transforming complex technologies into simple and straightforward integrated systems. Our vision is to make each of our systems your best investment, by selecting the most suitable technologies, with our experiences and expertise. From conventional to state-of-the-art technologies, we provide water treatment solutions that can reliably deliver safe drinking water to municipalities and government entities, high-quality ingredient water for food and beverage manufacturing, pure and ultrapure water for use in the process industries such as power plant, electronics, and semiconductor, pharmaceutical, refineries, and petrochemical industries.

On wastewater, we have developed cost-effective solutions for municipals, industrial, and commercial sectors; be it containerised systems or civil-based construction. From consultation to full project turn-key.

MATTEN has been a big advocator for water reuse and even zero liquid discharge (ZLD), sustainability is a key motivator. We offer solutions for rainwater and greywater harvesting, municipal and industrial wastewater reuse, deploying technologies in biological and non-biological treatment, advanced oxidation process, and evaporators.

Brand Philosophy

MATTEN endeavours to make the applications of water technologies simple, through intelligent and sustainable design. This commitment is reflected in the company logo, which makes up multihued constituents inspired by the structure of a water molecule — core to the identity of MATTEN. The transitory nature of water treatment is depicted by the change in colour.

The dots depict our deployment of Digital Solutions and Smart Devices, harnessing the power of data and analytics for decision making. The three colours are all brought together through interconnecting lobes symbolising people, technology, and environment.
