Global Mat International (GMI) has been providing high quality ground protection mats for a number of projects across the nation for many years. Today, the GMI is one of the largest producers of matting products.  In fact, the GMI is the standard in our industry. When you buy your ground protection mats from GMI you can rest assured that your mats have been made using the finest materials, such as high quality hardwoods and steel fasteners or bolts.

We have an assortment of mats that are designed for a variety of projects. For example, our crane mats are dense and compression resistant to withstand the harshest conditions and the heaviest equipment, while our rig mats are soundly constructed and designed to last for an average of 15-20 years! We hope you’ll have the chance to visit one of our quality facilities, located in Houston, Texas and Killdeer, North Dakota, so we can extend some of our southern pride and kindness your way!

We’ve also provided crane mats to aid in the construction of the Texas Children’s Hospital. Through our mat production and mat rentals we’ve strived to be one of Beaumont’s most environmentally friendly companies.

Our ground protection mats have done their part in everything from military applications to setting up rock and roll concerts.

If you need to be there, our mats can get you there.



As pioneers of the mat industry, we’ve developed several types of mats to meet the various needs of different industries.
