Who Are We?
We are McBryde Mats, a sports mat manufacturer that’s based out of Lubbock, Texas. Our CEO, Clayton McBryde, founded the company in 2014 after plenty of research and consideration into the mat market – which had a bit of a family connection. As the father of three youth wrestlers, Clayton traveled all over the country to take his kids to competitive events and, everywhere he went, he found that the complaint about equipment was the same: wrestling mats were ridiculously expensive. He did some research into the wrestling mat market and found that suppliers of affordable mats just weren’t out there. Everything was too expensive, difficult to get, and didn’t last as long as it should have.
It was no wonder that local clubs and gyms had such a hard time keeping up with their equipment needs – they couldn’t afford the overpriced junk that was on the market, and that just wasn’t cool. Somebody had to step in. Clayton soon found himself buying the materials to make mats himself. Several truckloads of foam and vinyl later, McBryde Mats LLC was founded and manufacture started. Now, local gyms that had no way to replace their worn-out mats or simply couldn’t get more appropriate types for what they were doing actually have the equipment they need.
Our products have been seen on television on the MMA-based drama Kingdom, and they’ve been shipped all across the country. Our mats have shown up in gyms and clubs in California, Montana, North Carolina, and even Mississippi. You’ll see our logo in New York. There isn’t anywhere in the United States of America that we haven’t shown up, and we’re quite pleased with that.
What is Our Philosophy?
First of all, we believe in providing high-quality, affordable mats to gyms, clubs, and families, and making them easy to acquire. We also believe that it’s important to be able to meet the needs of any group that’s looking to replace their mats, or is just getting started. We’re also firm believers in the importance of safety. We’ve been fully licensed since the beginning, and we got into this to begin with because we recognized how a lack of affordable mats was a big safety issue.
At McBryde Mats, communication is important and we’ll keep in touch with you from the time you place your order until we’ve shipped. We’ve also been known to make sure things arrive safely, and we’re quick to reply when you contact us with a concern. That’s just good business. We’ve been in your shoes before, and we know how frustrating it is when companies don’t talk to us, so it’s part of our philosophy to always be easy to reach.
We also believe it’s important for kids and families to get active and stay that way. It’s easier to do that when you don’t have to worry about getting hurt, and when you have the best equipment available to you. When you work with us, you’re part of our family, too.
