Randy Ernst - President & Inventor and Darlene Ernst - CFO

"After 23 years of working on hard concrete flooring and suffering multiple injuries, my wife and I wanted to create a mat to help prevent others from the hardship of standing on hard flooring."

- Randy

The History of PTMI

Pro-Tech Mats Industries, Inc. was founded in 1994. Randy Ernst, President and wife, Darlene Ernst, CFO, worked in the automotive industry for 23 years. Randy was a line technician working on hard, wet, and oily concrete floors. The years of working on the hard flooring was not good to him leaving him with heal spurs, bad knees, fused vertebrae in his lower back and sciatic nerve problems. Together Randy and Darlene wanted to create a mat to provide relief of fatigue to anyone who performs a stand up job task.

In 1994 Randy and Darlene teamed up with a family friend who was a rubber chemist with over (40) forty years experience and after (2) two years they developed the rubber compound to manufacture the Ortho Mat®. Realizing that they had a great product, Randy and Darlene decided to take it to Market and be in business for themselves. With both of them coming from the automotive industry where service is important, they decided that they would provide the best anti-fatigue mat® and outstanding service to their network of Ortho Mat distributors. Now 17 years later, PTMI offers several different mats for use in many applications.

In January of 2001 MACtac purchased Pro Tech "ORTHO MATS" from Technical Devices Company, Inc. We decided to let TDC provide matting for our plant after their sales representative, Chris D., came to our facility to discuss our needs. Upon completion of the interview he arranged for a mat to be delivered to our facility for evaluation by our production personnel. They loved the matting!!

I am the owner of a very busy, highly productive printing company. All my employees are at standing work stations and I have used the Ortho Mats in my production areas as well as at our customer service counter for the past eight (8) years.

Thank you for bringing in the sample Nitrile Ortho Mat. All of my employees and me love the comfort and grip that the mat has. The mat has held up perfectly to all the abuse here at The Varsity and that is really saying something considering we are the busiest drive restaurant in America.
