Jason Matthias | The M of MCM

Jason Matthias 1960 – 2016

In November especially,  we remember those we have lost.  At MCM this time of year has an added sadness, as we remember the sudden passing of Jason Matthias, one of the company’s founders, at the early age of 56 in November 2016.

The M of MCM

Much more than the M of MCM – Matthias Construction Materials – Jason was the driving force behind our business success and growth from the very beginning in 1992. Behind this great man was a close-knit, supportive and loving family – both at home and at work – from his wife Shazna, children and their broader MCM family at the Surrey headquarters.

Strong principles and inspiration

Jason instilled the spirit of inclusiveness at MCM.  Everyone was welcome.  Jason managed to join the dots between supplier and customer. Today, we maintain this core standard inspired by him and thus continue the traditions of good value and great business practice.

Legacy

MCM now supplies over 500,000 tonnes of construction and landscaping material for each year, including 100,000 tonnes of topsoil and 250,000 tonnes of primary aggregates – and 100,000 one-tonne bags.

The M of MCM is synonymous with multi-faceted products, meticulous attention to detail and mastery in the supply of soils, aggregates and waste removal … but for the MCM team, it will remain the M of Jason Matthias: businessman, husband, father, colleague and friend.

  • ‘I have worked with Scott and MCM over the last few years and we have built up a great working relationship. No matter what time of day, they will get back to me ASAP. If something is not achievable they would tell me instead of saying ‘yes’ and not performing. All deliveries turn up when required and we have great prices. I really enjoy working alongside the MCM team and would recommend them to anyone.’
