Shawcor Ltd. has recently announced that it has rebranded to Mattr (legal name: Shawcor Ltd., dba Mattr Infratech) herein referred to as “Mattr” or the “Company”.
This change reflects its transformation from an energy services organization, into a materials technology company, providing differentiated, high-performance products to critical infrastructure markets around the world. Effective June 7, trading of Mattr’s common stock on the Toronto Stock Exchange will be quoted under the ticker symbol TSX: MATR. As part of the rebrand, the Company has launched a beta of its new website that can be accessed at www.mattr.com.
In concert with the rebrand, the Company has made the following changes to its reporting segments:
- The Composite Systems reporting segment will now be known as Composite Technologies. Businesses contained within the Composite Technologies segment continue to be the Flexpipe business, which manufactures premium flexible fiberglass reinforced composite pipe used for oil and gas gathering and water disposal lines, carbon dioxide injection lines and other applications requiring corrosion resistance and high-pressure capabilities; and the Xerxes business, which manufactures market-leading fiberglass reinforced plastic underground storage tanks, primarily used within the retail fuel, storm water and wastewater markets and other composite material based storm water management products
- The Automotive and Industrial reporting segment will now be known as Connection Technologies.

The name of the Pipeline and Pipe Services reporting segment, for which a strategic review process is ongoing, will remain the same. The Shawcor name will continue to be used as a brand name for the pipe coating business within this segment.
“Today marks a new chapter for our organization as we launch our new name and brand image, an image that is reflective of the nimble, modern, energetic workforce that we employ and better aligns with our fundamentally transformed portfolio,” said Mike Reeves, President and CEO of Mattr. “As we look to the future, we will leverage our new image, our differentiated offerings and our underlying core competencies in materials technology to deliver high-value, reliable, environmentally responsible products into critical infrastructure markets around the world; to attract and inspire extraordinary talent; and to propel our operating businesses to even greater heights.”
