Matt, a Spanish brand of gloves, headbands, caps, hats, scarves and other accessories for winter and outdoor sports, has been acquired by Excens, a Spanish group involved in sports and logistics. Synergies are expected with two of its brands, TRS Motorcyles and Hebolution Parts (or just Hebo), which stand for motorcycling accessories. Based in Barcelona, Matt is a brand that was launched in 1979 by Matollo Sport, a much older Spanish firm that produces accessories for fitness, racquet sports and other activities. It also has a line of basketballs that are sold under the Matt brand name. Excens has acquired Matollo Sport and renamed the company as Mattirial Sport, which will be based in Gerona and run by Ramón Solé, former sales manager of Matt. Another manager of Matt, Victorio Diez, has joined the group to help launch new products including a line of Gore-Tex gloves and new lines of underwear and socks. Matt plans also to develop a line of ski helmets.
