Our Story History

Telling our unique story. Since 1963.

Emmet Hart MA Matting Our Story
Our Story 1963


Emmett Hart established M+A Matting in a small building not far from LaGrange, Georgia. Before venturing into his own business, Hart had spent many years in the design and development division at Callaway Mills. His decision to start his own company was influenced by his better half, Nancy. At its inception, M+A Matting had just seven employees, including Emmett and Nancy, marking the beginnings of a family-owned enterprise.

Our Story 1979


Fast forward to 1979, and David Hart, Emmett's son, joined his father in the business. Together, they worked tirelessly to build M+A Matting into a thriving enterprise. This partnership endured until Emmett's unfortunate passing in 2000. However, the legacy he left behind paved the way for the next generation to take the reins.

Our Story 1999


In 1999, M+A Matting embarked on a significant expansion endeavour by merging with The Andersen Company, headquartered in Dalton, Georgia. This strategic move allowed the company to broaden its reach and product offerings, further solidifying its position in the industry.
