Meet the All-Star Miller Mats Team!!!
Mark Miller - President
Mark founded Miller Mats in 1996 with the idea of being the best in the commercial floor mat business. His great crew now serves over 700 businesses and organizations in the Greater Pittsburgh and Southwestern PA region, and they are fired up to get even better every day! In addition, they share their matting expertise nationwide through the Miller Mats website.
Mark enjoys travelling adventures with his family and friends: biking along the Costa Brava in Spain, hiking the rainforest in Costa Rica, being awed by the giant Sequoias in California and touring the ancient city of Petra in Jordan.
He just bought his first road bike, so he is grunting his way up many of the hills around Pittsburgh. He tends to his vegetable and flower gardens at Miller Mats and at home. When it is raining, the schedule is ping pong and updating the vinyl collection.
