Celebrating 65 Years of Excellence: The Legacy of Resilite

Resilite 65th Anniversary Logo

As Resilite celebrates its 65th year of business, we reflect on a journey marked by innovation, dedication, and a commitment to excellence. Since its inception in 1959, Resilite has been a pioneer in the manufacturing of high-quality mats and protective padding, earning the trust and loyalty of athletes, coaches, and sports enthusiasts worldwide.

Warren Tischler Wrestler, Resilite Founder

One of the reasons Resilite is a vibrant and innovative company today is the strong foundation that was laid by the leadership of our founder, Warren F. Tischler

From humble origins in a used car garage in Sunbury, Pennsylvania, Warren founded Resilite Sport Products, Inc., and proceeded to develop the insular foam mat that is the standard in use in the world today.

Warren was formally recognized for his contributions to wrestling and the development of the wrestling mat when he received the Order of Merit from the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in 1987. His hard work, perseverance and love of wrestling propelled Resilite to achieve recognition as the world’s largest manufacturer of wrestling mats and wall padding.

A Tradition of Innovation

Resilite was founded with a simple yet ambitious goal: to create the best wrestling mats in the industry. Over the years, we have not only achieved this goal but have also expanded our product line to include mats for gymnastics, cheerleading, climbing, mixed martial arts, fitness, wall padding, structural padding, and more. Our dedication to innovation has led to the development of products that meet the highest standards of safety and performance.

One of our proudest achievements is the introduction of the Classic Wrestling Mat. Known for its durability and superior impact protection, the Classic Wrestling Mat has set the industry standard and is trusted by top athletic organizations, including the NCAA Wrestling Championships. This mat exemplifies our commitment to providing athletes with the safest and most reliable training surfaces.

American Craftsmanship

At Resilite, we take immense pride in our American-made products. Unlike many competitors who have moved production overseas, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to American manufacturing. Our mats are crafted in Pennsylvania, where skilled workers ensure each product meets our rigorous quality standards. This dedication to craftsmanship not only supports local jobs but also guarantees that our customers receive the best possible products.

Customer Trust and Satisfaction

Over the past 65 years, Resilite has built a reputation for exceptional customer service and satisfaction. We understand that our success is intertwined with the success of our customers, and we go above and beyond to meet their needs. Whether it's providing customized mat solutions or offering expert advice, we are committed to helping our customers achieve their goals.

Our newly-released Hybrid Mat is a testament to our customer-centric approach. Designed to offer unparalleled impact protection and surface customization, the Hybrid Mat is perfect for combat sports and defensive tactical training. Its innovative locking mechanism allows for easy changeover between surfaces, making it a versatile choice for various training environments.

Looking to the Future

As we celebrate our 65th anniversary, we are more committed than ever to pushing the boundaries of innovation and quality. We continue to invest in research and development to bring new and improved products to the market. Our goal is to remain the leading manufacturer of sports mats and protective padding, ensuring that athletes of all levels have access to the best training surfaces available.

In addition to our focus on product excellence, we are dedicated to sustainability and community engagement. We are constantly exploring ways to reduce our environmental footprint and give back to the communities that have supported us over the years.
