About Us
Beattie Matheson has been proudly distributing and establishing premium global sports, outdoor and lifestyle brands in Australasia since 1982.  We have a rich history in both footwear and apparel with extensive knowledge of our market that has come through more than 60 years of accumulated knowledge.

We are a family-owned business with strong family values.  We put relationships first because we know that brands grow from strength to strength through commitment, loyalty and trusted partnerships. 

We are absolutely passionate about all of the brands we distribute and the people behind them which is why we enjoy long-term partnerships that have lasted multiple decades rather than seasons.

Our Values

  • We are a family-owned business with strong family values. This means we actually care about people – our staff, our consumers, our customers and our suppliers.  We wouldn’t be here without them.
  • We are proud to be renowned in the industry as passionate about our brands.  We walk the talk.
  • We are straight up people - we say what we think and do what we say.
  • We believe that reputation is a reflection of integrity.  Being Loyal comes easily to us.  
  • We combine fresh perspective with years of experience to create Brand Magic.


Our Vision

To be the leading and most sought after lifestyle & performance distributor in Australasia.

We are very selective about the brands we partner with and will never take on a brand we don’t believe in because there is no tenure in that.  
We look for brands that:

  • Have a rich history and brand story we can tell
  • A differentiated product or offering that is a category leader
  • Is best-in-class
  • Has a genuine reason to exist

If you have a brand that meets the above then we’d love to explore the opportunity with you.

You can contact us here.
