Celebrating 50 Years!
Known as a hidden jewel in the city of Chester, Pennsylvania, Health Mats has a great story because it started as a diaper cleaning service in the fifties and became a regional commercial rental mat company that is active and competitive with regional and national textile rental companies today.
A company that is owned and operated by Vince Del Rossi, Health Mats is celebrating 50 years of service to the Greater Philadelphia and tri state region. Health Mats incorporated in 1969, after Vince’s father’s company “Tiny Tykes Diaper Service” was no longer a lucrative business due to the technology of disposable diapers. Vince’s father came up with the term “Health Mat” for mats they were delivering to customers and the name became the company’s brand for rental mats.
Vince Del Rossi, still leads this very unique company with enthusiasm, going the distance, and plotting the coarse for business success. When asked about the humble beginnings of Health Mats, Vince recalls cleaning mats with his wife Nancy early on. “We were kids when we started. We worked hard and never gave up.”
In 1988, Health Mats Company moved from Ridley Avenue to Pennell St. in Chester, Pennsylvania where the Health Mats Industrial Laundry Facility operates. On average, Health Mats cleans an estimated 25,000 pounds of rubber mat per day! Open just four days a week – that’s 100,000 pounds of mat a week!
2019 is our year to reflect on how far Health Mats has come as a company and the customers and staff at Health Mats all know they are a part of a great community. With core values centered on being a clean, safe, and healthy company, Health Mats gives back to the community through charitable giving and sponsorships. Each year Health Mats raises money for Breast Cancer Awareness month through a Pink Ribbon Mat Program that benefits local patients who are struggling because of breast cancer. In 2018, Team Health Mats raised over $5000 and contributed 10K for the Eagles Autism Challenge, and in 2019, we are working towards greater community giving. It just makes sense to develop a responsible program that cares about people.
