Growing industry in the regions

Matt Reimann was presented the Rural and Regional Award by the SA Business Chamber at this year’s 40 Under 40.

After starting an apprenticeship at 16 in 2003, Matt joined his father Michael in 2007 to establish Reimann Manufacturing.

Later joined by his brother Stuart, Matt now has 35 staff under his management building everything from silos to providing pipework for major infrastructure projects and factory fit outs.

Reimann attributes his success to hard work and a “can-do attitude”.

“I believe in constant improvement; I don’t care if you are an apprentice or seasoned veteran, a good idea is a good idea,” he says.

In 2015, Reimann was diagnosed with Stage 3 bowel cancer, which led him to move his focus into the office, where he helped the company win its first million-dollar job.

Now fighting brain cancer, Reimann is taking the back seat at work, putting faith in the team he helped assemble.

He said the best piece of advice he was ever give was “You have two ears and one mouth, so you should do twice as much listening as talking.”
