Welcome to visit Horseflooring.com, it is a subsidiary company of Focusonmats.com, we are focusing on provide horse flooring solution for horse’s owners, main products are lightweight horse mats on the market.
Our story began 8 years ago when I was working for a company in Qingdao China as a salesman, my main job was selling solid rubber mats and rubber sheets to the North America. One day, I received an email from a horse owner from Iowa named Molly, she said she want to buy several pieces of comfort softer horse mats for her horse with rheumatoid arthritis in the winter, but she found nothing but heavy solid rubber mats or dogbone rubber pavers in the market, she was very disappointed. By chance, she saw my information from Google and wroten a email to us and ask if we can suuply a lighter, softer and more flexible horse mats for her horses with joint diseases (I believed she sent emails to different manufacturers at that time). Due to we don’t have similar mats and had to refuse her. This makes me feel guilty for not helping her horse.
I never forgot this thing. So when I left this company a year later, I spent some time to visit more than twenty manufacturers to look for a better solution for horse mats, but it was failed. No one wants to spend their time and energy on a product with uncertain market prospect, it is a risk for them. No one supported my idea and my friends also advised me several times to give up it. I was frustrated.
But then, I found a new horse mats which is made of EVA foam material and it’s produced by only a few factories, but their quality varies greatly. Through our reduplicate effort, our collaborative factory succeeded in producing better EVA Stable Mats, so our busniness started with EVA stable mats firstly. And our frist order came from United Kingdom, and they are very satisfied with our quality.
The story does not end ther. One day when I was buying shoes at a shoe store, I was suddenly inspired by the material on the soles, why not try the material of soles? It’s lightweight, softer and durable. This sudden inspiration made me excited. At the same time, (on Augest 9th, 2015) I received an E-mail from Mr. Andrews, United Kingdom, Mr. Andrews is an extremely experienced specialist and entrepreneur in this industry, he asked me if can supply better EVA horse mats and discussed how to do this kind of new mats over the next few months.
According to Mr. Andrews’s guidance and suggestions, we worked with our technologists to try some new material again and again, but failure after failure. To make matters worse, several core team members had left, the progress has been greatly affected, much work had to be done from scratch. Fortunately in October 2017, the samples was successfully manufactured. In November, 2018, we officially launched the ultimate horse mats — Therapeutic Stable Mats.
Now we are still improving our quality of horse mats to supply better horse stable flooring for users and help them t improve their horses’ health in the stable.
If you ask us if we are the manufacturer, our frank answer is that we don’t know. Because we don’t have our own production equipments and factory, the manufacturing process is outsourced to outsourcing factory, we only kept the design and R&D division, But we have rich R&D knowledge and professional manufacturing experience, as well as quality control capability.
As you know, no road is always smooth. We also experienced a lot of setbacks and bring a lot of loss to the customer. For example, our previous outsourcing factory to save their costs, they privately changed the proportion of ingredients and caused several serious quality problems. It brought serious problems for our customers. Not only the loss of money, more serious is the harm of business reputation. Therefore, we had to change the outsourcing factory and improve the solution of quality control. (According to sources in the industry, that previous outsourcing factory are still manufacturing EVA stable mats and exported to Europe through an agent. So please take care when you purchase EVA stable mats).
Horseflooring is not the large company, we just is a small and medium enterprise in this industry which is only focusing on supplying better solution for your horse flooring and help you get more economical and durable horse mats which is lightweight and comfortable
