Tepromark, a staple in the American flooring and matting industry for more than 40 years, was formerly a distributor of Plastex's matting and flooring products. After the recent death of Tepromark's owner, Robert J. Morris, Plastex purchased the company's matting products.

"Since being founded in 1971, Tepromark has been a Master Distributor of Plastex products," said David O'Sullivan, Plastex managing director.

Our philosophy of working with distributors is still foremost and we look forward to transitioning all the end users to new master distributors best suited to service them." Plastex will service all existing and new customer inquiries for the matting ranges, including Teproflow, Teprohold and Gridlock, initially from its manufacturing facility in Alabama. With the acquisition, Tepromark's Teproflow will become Plastex's Heronrib, Hollowgrip will become Floorline and Teprohold will become Vynagrip.
