The inspiration for GelPro's anti-fatigue mats began one
Thanksgiving, when founder Rob McMahan, an engineer by trade, noticed his wife
Lisa shuffling her feet from side-to-side on the cold hardwood floor. After
standing in the kitchen for nearly six hours, she felt a sharp pain inching up
her lower back until finally, it became unbearable.
Inspired to find relief for his wife's unrelenting pain, McMahan
began working on an idea that would revolutionize kitchen workspaces—a
gel-filled mat that bounces back to provide continuous support and therapeutic
relief. It took countless hours and hundreds of prototypes to get it right, but
McMahan succeeded. Within three years, his company, Let's Gel, was up and
running and selling floor mats like hotcakes.
Since 2005, Let's Gel, Inc. has sold more than one million
floor mats. GelPro is now the most recognized ergonomic floor mat brand in the
U.S. Based in Austin, Texas, the company manufactures their products in nearby
Waco and Leander, Texas.
