For more than four decades, Matcon has been delivering complete solutions to create flexible powder handling systems. From system specification, design, engineering, to installation, Matcon is more than just an Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) manufacturer.

Established in 1980, Matcon launched its unique Discharger Valves – game-changing technology to solve problems with the flow of difficult-to-handle materials in Storage Silos. Building on this success, Matcon applied the same idea to IBCs – inventing their world-famous Cone Valve IBCs which revolutionized the capabilities of traditional systems. Matcon’s invention was able to eliminate problems with powder mix segregation and control difficult to handle powders.

In July 2012, Matcon was acquired by the IDEX Corporation and are now part of IDEX’s Material Processing Technologies division alongside world-leading brands from Quadro Engineering, Fitzpatrick and Microfluidics.

With their Head Office in UK, Matcon is supported around the world by regional offices and Test Facilities in the USA, China, Singapore, and India.
