Our roots in the textile service industry go all the way back to the early days of mat manufacturing and industrial laundry rental service. The beginning of NuMat Systems was similar to other specialty manufacturing startups with broad product
catalogs and an array of styles, competitive prices with top quality. We had a lot of fun and some
success but the core of our current business is actually the chance result of a customer request and challenge to repair their damaged mats. The series of events that followed put us on the path towards sustainability and is why we are still
serving the laundry industry today.
While we continued to manufacture new mats for our regular customers the rest of the team was busy experimenting with combinations of raw and finished feed stock, adjusting, adapting, and testing the limits of our equipment and collective imagination. We modified processes, engineered production tooling, and invented a unique solution for damaged mats called Remanufacturing.
Over a decade later we are happy to share that 99% of our work now is focused on damaged mats and we are dedicated to reducing the industry’s impact on the environment.

These mats should have years of useful rental ahead but they are discarded as waste.
Damage is totally unpredictable and this is only a short list of the most common variables that can affect our work.
We have seen many interesting mat problems but we know we haven’t seen it all.
If you are unsure about any particular mat just give us a call!
Remanufacturing gives your inventory another chance at a profitable life — instead of being amortized in the landfill.
Every repair program needs a plan for shipment. We accept mats in any containter and packing style that you prefer but you might consider these strategies to reduce the freight cost per mat.
We can make logistics arrangements and provide consolidated billing for freight and repair when you’re ready to ship just let us know!
Every day your team will remove damaged product from inventory in order to maintain quality standards. The useful lifespan of a mat should be measured in years but too often there are many that get trashed after the first or second rental. In this chart you will find that when you have as few as two damaged mats per day you could save up to $10k
over the cost of replacement.
There is an old saying in the laundry business that the “profit is in the pennies” and you can see the net reduction in inventory cost is significantly more than pennies or a few percentage points. Our customers enjoy between 40% and 70% lower cost than replacing damaged product. Cost reductions on that magnitude are possible even with just one order per year.
Our goal is to deliver the most cost effective solution to damaged mats and the most ethical answer to
The benefit of remanufacturing is more than just cost reduction on inventory replacement. Our customers also enjoy lower waste disposal fees and better looking mats. The net effect of remanufacturing can be quantified as a dollar amount in the budget surplus but the real value is found in customer retention through increased safety and quality.
We are proud to serve the laundry industry and we are here to help your business make the next step towards a sustainable future.
