DURA-BASE Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Newpark Mats & Integrated Services, a leader in innovative, leading-edge site and access solutions, announces a significant milestone in the history of the company, as this year marks the 25th anniversary of its flagship DURA-BASE® Composite Mat System™ – the original composite mat.

DURA-BASE was introduced back in 1998 as the market’s first engineered thermoplastic worksite access solution. Today, with the largest fleet in the world, DURA-BASE continues to set the standard for safe, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly performance and remains the preferred heavy-duty working platform for temporary work sites and access roads.
