Pathway Mats
Pathway Innovative Matting Solutions


Product performance and innovation testing are favored activities at Pathway. It is here that we able to evaluate our ideas and measure improvement. In addition to our internal testing, we also work with our customers to conduct field testing on new innovations or to get feedback on existing products. This knowledge enables us to provide superior products, exceptional value and new solutions. As many of our products are very large, this limits where we conduct our testing. Consequently, Pathway uses some large and different types of testing apparatuses.
