KEE Surfacing has been busy working in the Pilbara alongside one of the major mining companies to provide road maintenance and shoulder widening works on the access roads around a mine.
KEE Spray Seal acquired two brand new, state-of-the-art-the art bitumen sprayers and two bitumen trailers from Matthews Brothers to add to the expanding fleet.
Matthews Brothers, like KEE Group, are an Australian owned family business. In 2021, the company celebrated their centennial year, a phenomenal achievement for a company in our industry.
Making Equipment to Support the Military in WWII
The business was started by Roy Matthews and Victor Bradley in Newport, Victoria. After twenty years of solid trade, the Matthews family were engaged by the military to produce a variety of equipment to support the war effort. This equipment used in World War II included items such as practice mortar bombs and torpedo nose casings.
When the war finished, the business diversified and they began designing and developing products for the Australian agricultural industry. They also manufactured a range of other equipment including cast iron pulleys, grates, suspension frames, and even track spikes for running shoes!
Third Generation Family Owned
Paul Matthews, as the third- generation family owner, is proud of the family’s legacy and along with his team is committed to producing road making equipment built for Australia’s unique conditions.
KEE Group chooses to use Matthew Brothers as one of its suppliers for their craftsmanship, technology, ingenuity and team of experts. As we all know, the Australian environment can offer up some unforgiving conditions so it is critical to purchase equipment that can rise to the challenge. With over a hundred years of engineering, we believe we are in safe hands with Matthew Brothers.
