Entrepreneur touts ultimate office mats

By Sarah Toland, For the Camera
July 19, 2004

Office mats may not be the hot topic at the water cooler, but they're a fixture at many workplaces And there's a difference between a good, strong mat and crackled, old plastic floor mats.

This was the rationale of local entrepreneur Marsha Savin Livingston when, last fall, the Gunbarrel resident developed the GlassMat, an office mat made out of glass. The concept is simple-sounding enough, but the product, Livingston says, provides a whole lot more than a standard plastic pad.

The GlassMat offers a firm, friction-free, unbreakable and scratch-resistant surface for use under any chair-and-desk configuration in both commercial and residential offices. The benefit to the recipient, Livingston says, is increased mobility, decreased fatigue, overall aesthetic enhancement and, given the product's lifetime guarantee, a permanent solution to perpetual plastic mat replacement.

"You will never buy another chair mat," says Livingston, who notes that most office mats don't last longer than a few years before becoming ripped, indented and otherwise worthless. "You literally glide (on the GlassMat). There's no tension on your legs. It improves your back support because the glass is so firm."

After working full-time in various office buildings across the county since the age of 17, Livingston, now 45, knows the intricacies and accompanying irritations of office living. The former California resident has worn an assortment of corporate hats, from director of marketing at a San Francisco-based architecture firm to paralegal, her most recent stint, for a law office in Boulder County.

"I was frustrated with the expense and inadequacy of many chair mats," says Livingston, who moved from the Bay Area to Gunbarrel in the winter of 2002. "I had completely discarded using a mat. When I saw (the idea) for GlassMat, I just thought 'Oh my God.'"

This iteration led Livingston to launch her own company, Tech-Line Products Inc., as the parent corporation for her premiere product. By Jan. 1, both Tech-Line and GlassMat were ready for business, and Livingston has sold the office mat to more than 300 residential and commercial accounts. GlassMat's current clientele includes the Denver-based Financial Architect, Gunbarrel's 1st Bank and the city of Boulder City Attorney's Office.

Livingtson says she's already made a good profit and developed a good customer base mostly through word of mouth. The entrepreneur also sent mail solicitations, advertised with local newspapers and joined the Boulder and Broomfield chambers of commerce.

Leonard Johnson, partner at the Boulder CPA firm Johnson, Kightlinger, Graham, heard about GlassMat this spring from a client and subsequently purchased GlassMats for himself, his secretary and his wife's home office

"(The GlassMat) is a superior product," says Johnson, noting that the firm intends to eventually outfit its other offices with Livingston's product. "It's like moving up from a Ford Pinto to a Cadillac. They're moderately priced for what you get, and it looks a lot sharper in the office as well."

Glamour is a strong selling point for this upscale mat that knows no other similarly styled competition.

"We get a lot of comments that it's very nice-looking," says Billy Stone, office services provider for Boulder-based Faegre Benson LLC, which has three Livingston mats. "Once we got them in, they seemed to be kind of an eye-catcher."

Livingston attributes GlassMat's aesthetic appeal to its unique material.

"The sheen and the shine lights up your office," she says. "The element of light that comes off the glass is really incredible."

Incredible indeed, but, in the interest of a pending patent, Livingston remains mum on the material and manufacturing process, noting only that a Denver-area supplier ships the GlassMat material to her home office.

Livingston, who functions as Tech-Line's founder, owner and sole employee, then cuts the material and installs the pre-ordered mats in offices throughout the Boulder-Denver area. GlassMat comes in four standard sizes but is easily custom-cut to fit unusual office designs.

Although quite pleased with the salability and success of GlassMat, Livingston is already working on two other creations for Tech-Line Products.

"I just sit around and think about things," says Livingston, who manages Tech-Line as a full-time occupation. "If there's anything frustrating, I try to think of a solution. In your everyday life, there's always something that you wish could be designed differently or done differently."
