Our Business...Our Commitment

At Bison Mat, we’re in the business of helping other people succeed. Sounds a bit like a generic tagline; something that could fit a summer camp, a bank, a realtor, a government program. For us, it’s not really a tagline so much as it is a source of clarity and inspiration. Helping other people succeed takes on a rather unique bend that looks a bit different every day and with each interaction. Sometimes it means we’re partnering with a local small business to make sure that their office space is set up with what they need to be productive. Sometimes we’re not selling them our products at all, but are just helping them do the good work they’re committed to. Sometimes it means we’re working with people who are building out a home office or a production area or helping a large company outfit their workspaces. Other times, we’re doing something a little more unconventional, like outfitting a gaming area or protecting wood floors from big dogs with giant claws and paws. Regardless of what we’re doing and who we’re doing it for, our commitment is to something much bigger — and much more meaningful — than the chair mats we produce.

Durability - What You Didn’t Know You Needed

Have you ever gotten something and then wondered why you lived without it for so long?

Durability, whether in a floor mat or something else, is something you don’t really appreciate until you’ve had something that’s cheap. And by “cheap” we’re not talking about something that’s affordably-priced. We’re talking about poorly made, not-long-lasting products that have a limited life span.

Once you’ve owned something cheap, you realize why it’s worth spending money. Read more ...

Bison Mat - Protection as Performance

Performance.

Not really a word you expect to be used in describing chair mats. Maybe words like “tan” or “plastic.” Maybe even “big” or “square” and sometimes “rectangle.” But performance? Maybe, if we’re really trying to make a connection, we could say “performance” with our mats refers to the fact that they last longer than any other mat on the market. Or maybe we could say it has to do with the fact that our mats have stopped a shotgun blast and can keep floors with moisture issues from developing mold and mildew. Or maybe performance could be about how we treat our customers or how our product is high quality or about any number of other marketing messages that are true and important about a Bison Mat.

Choosing Between Cheaper and Better

At Bison Mat, we like to say that you could always find a cheaper chair mat, but you could never find a better one. And that’s just it…that’s a philosophy in our business that we want to take into just about everything we do. At least…almost everything.

Sometimes, cheaper is just fine. You don’t really need the highest quality version of absolutely everything on the market. For instance…dog toys. Have you ever bought a dog toy from a pet store? It probably ran you about 8 bucks. And it took your dog just as long to tear into it and ingest that tiny little squeaker thing as any other toy. The dollar store is a perfectly reasonable source for dog toys.
