The Team

Helping you to put your best foot forward

Kim Death

Kim Death Wholesale Matting Company NZ

A former primary school teacher, ‘mat time’ has taken on a whole new meaning for Kim, since she  took over The Wholesale Matting Company in 2017. 

Driven and detail-orientated, Kim thrives on the challenge of running her own business and finding the right mat for the right job!

It’s important to Kim that customers not only receive products that are fit for purpose, but that also stand the test of time.

“We pride ourselves on providing top quality products, matched with top quality service. I’m a people person so I love establishing relationships with customers as much as I do sourcing new and innovative products,” says Kim.

When she’s not at work, Kim can be found behind the drums of her rock band Decibel, thrashing it out on the squash court, or hanging out at a climbing gym, supporting her two boys who are avid rock climbers.

Lyn Dobson

Operations Manager
Lyn Dobson Wholesale Matting Company NZ

When you call The Wholesale Matting Company, most likely the voice you will hear at the end of the phone is Lyn’s. That’s because what Lyn doesn’t know about matting is not worth knowing!

Lyn joined The Wholesale Matting Company in 2004, after an interesting and accomplished career in administration and marketing. 

Adept at turning her hand to pretty much anything, Lyn completed a Masters in Marketing during time spent in London, and has worked with some big international names, including The Times newspaper, Coca Cola, Visa and Hermès, to name a few. She’s even worked with a private investigator – so you can be confident that if a mat exists for the job at hand she will track it down!

A self-proclaimed foodie, Lyn spends her spare time cooking up a storm, keeping an eye on the property market, reading, arts and crafts and spending time with her growing lad (6ft and counting).

It is with great pleasure we welcome back Sheila who previously worked for The Wholesale Matting Company from 2012 to 2018 .  She is a tireless worker and brings passion and energy to her role as Sales Rep and many of our customers will remember her fondly.

Sheila has two sons and is grandmother to four beautiful granddaughters who take up a lot of her spare time – not that she is complaining.  She also enjoys a walk around the Mount, coffee with friends and a good non-fiction book.  

Mandy Weeks

Sales Admin
Mandy is the newest member of our team.  Mandy is our girl Friday; she has a strong accounts and office administration background.  For the past 12 years she has worked from home for various small businesses, giving her a broad range of skills and flexibility to do any task.

Outside of work you will find Mandy a happy busy mum running around after her two children or on her roller skates being a menace on eight wheels!  Mandy also enjoys music and attending concerts.


Mat Quality Control Inspector and Male Mat Model
Rico - Mat Quality Control Inspector and Male Mat Model
Rico takes his role very seriously and loves posing for a photo shoot beside every mat.

He and his colleague Louie (The Voyager Suitcase Dog) make sure to do a few rounds of Judea every day for security purposes and to check their P-Mail.

In his spare time Rico is obsessed with fetch and can catch a frisbee in the air.  He also drags Kim along to Agility training whenever he can.
