Classic American Main Street with a Twist: Logo Mats at Easton Town CenterPosted: Sep 2013 Posted by: Mats Inc.

A flashback to a simpler time when main streets were commonplace and locally-owned and run stores reigned supreme.

In the early 1990s at the start of his latest real estate development project, Les Wexner sought to revive the old days and restore main street America.  Adding a modern twist on the traditional main street idea, Wexner, in conjunction with The Georgetown Company and M+A Architects, created Easton Town Center in Columbus, Ohio.

Easton Town Center has been designed to look much like a classic main street with pedestrian pathways, fountains and common public spaces while offering modern conveniences, such as big box stores, restaurants, a movie theater, corporate headquarters and much more.   With over 200 companies and stores, Easton has become a constant hub of activity, rain or shine, and there is always heavy foot traffic with lots of dirty, and often wet, shoes.

Soon after the opening, the Center’s facilities team realized that entrance matting had not been incorporated into the project design. 

The Easton facilities manager contacted Dick Stedman, founder of 50 year old Stedman Floors, and explained that they quickly needed walk-off matting for each store entrance that was durable enough to withstand the high amount of constant foot traffic, absorb moisture on rainy or snowy days, eliminate dirt and sand from patrons’ shoes and assimilate into the upscale motif of the Town Center.

Mr. Stedman recommended Mats Inc. and made arrangements for local Mats Inc. representative, Mark Sadauskas, to present options that would meet the Center’s requirements.  The facilities team evaluated a variety of products including conventional, high performance nop- and rib-style matting products like Supreme Nop and Berkshire, as well as nylon, carpet-like matting such as the New York Collection.   Ultimately, they selected Mat Inc’s New York Collection for its durability, ease of maintenance and its more luxurious aesthetics to complement the Center’s interiors.

Produced with New York Collection matting and Precision Inlay™ water jet manufacturing technology, Mats Inc. delivered dozens of custom logo mats that now provide protection throughout Easton Town Center.
