I wanted to share with all of you how I got started in the manufacturing our Premium Molded Carpet Kits. It all goes back in the summer of 2008 when I was in a mild car accident. I had been rear ended by another car while in stop-and-go traffic on the QEW in Oakville (West of Toronto, Canada). Being I was in the Landscape Construction industry meant that during the summer months I did a lot of driving and spent a lot of my time in my car. After 3 years the carpet in my 2005 Mazda3 GT sedan was completely thrashed and destroyed.
I figured that since my car was being fixed and would look factory new again that I should get my interior looking the same. After all, I do spend a lot of time in there (its like my office). At that point I started looking for a replacement carpet for my beloved, trusted Mazda3. I found the factory carpet was always impossible for me to keep clean and get cleaned. The dust and dried dirt always stayed embedded in the carpet no matter how long I vacuumed or washed the carpet. So I didn’t want to just replace it with just the same carpet that was in there to begin with. I wanted to replace the factory carpet with one that was more durable, easier to keep clean and actually looked like carpet.
After a ton of time spent scouring the internet, Mazda owners forums, phone calls to different custom shops, I couldn’t find any replacement replacement carpet. All I found was countless threads by Mazda3 owners complaining about the carpets in their cars.
Life-long car guy calls in favors
I have been a life-long automotive enthusiast (read: car crazed). My very first car was a custom 1990 Mazda B2200 that was shaved, smoothed and slammed and was built by me and some of my friends in my parents garage. Every car I have ever owned since, has had some kind of modification performed on it. So being told that such a carpet kit wasn’t available just didn’t do it for me. I started calling on a few of his friends in the automotive manufacturing sector to help find a solution. To make a long story short, many introductions and meeting later, Mazeuro Sport Design & www.mazda3carpet.com was born.
