Lloyd Mats

Company History

The Leader in custom floor mats since 1978.

Lloyd Mats (Lloyd) is the largest U.S. "all model" manufacturer of custom fit floor mats. The company started business in 1974. In 1978 Lloyd began manufacturing custom floor mats. Custom floor mats are currently the only product manufactured and sold. In 1999 Lloyd's employees purchased 100% of Lloyd's shares under a qualified Employee Stock Ownership Program. Every employee is now also an owner of the company.

Lloyd is housed in a large floor mat manufacturing plant in Los Angeles, California. Mat patterns are stored and cut using AutoCAD controlled, ultrasonic cutting equipment. Lloyd has a pattern for virtually every make and model of car, truck or van sold in the United States from 1960 to the present. Development of embroidery computer programs and the actual mat embroidery are both performed in Lloyd's plant. Lloyd's mats are finished with a color coordinated, nylon velour or vinyl mat edging.
