Wearwell Mat Company, Going Green For Over 50 Years

Wearwell Logo In the past few months All-Spec has added a lot of Wearwell mats. All-Spec has carried Wearwell products before but we’ve expanded our line to carry more anti-fatigue mats, drainage mats and sticky mats; some of these products have already been added and more are on the way. Wearwell is actually a pretty progressive company, especially when it comes to taking a green initiative. Wearwell Mat Company

According to the Wearwell website, the company has actually been going green since 1950! That’s well ahead of the curve. The company manufactured their first  products (door mats) out of recycled tires. Wearwell still strives to be green by using recycled materials but now they practice energy conservation and have gone green with the construction of their new corporate headquarters.

So what does Wearwell do specifically to protect resources and the environment?

  • Over half of Wearwell’s 90 products use at least 33% recycled materials; some of those products are made of 100% recycled materials
  • Using digital documents has cut down paper use and storage by 80% (All-Spec has done this too!)
  • Wearwell regrinds non-fill parts to reduce waste
  • The company is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council

It’s encouraging to see a company that has been and continues to invest time and resources into lessening their impression on the environment.
