About AIREX®

AIREX® is the world market leader in the field of training and therapy mats. In the early 1960s AIREX® was the first brand to manufacture foam mats, and to undertake the requisite pioneering extrusion works in the mid-1980s.

Values we live by


Being Swiss doesn’t just stand for origin, it’s our overarching value, the code of conduct we live by ever since we first started designing mats back in 1952, which were used afterward by the Swiss Army. Our signature “Swiss-born in 1952” stands for making the best, most durable, most reliable mats and pads in the world, without any exception or compromise.

Airy & pure

All AIREX® Swiss-made products are comprised of up to 96% air, which makes them unique in the world. Air is the essence of our products, but also the nature of our brand philosophy. We truly believe that everybody needs time to breathe, to put all the stress, worries, naggings of the day aside and get into their zone.

Strong & enduring

We are innovators with more than 60 years of experience in building state-of-art mats that are strong, supportive, and durable. We know hard work and dedication needed to create a product that will accompany you a lifetime. That is why everything we do, we believe in creating your own special space of strength.


It took great strength and sacrifice to reach the Edelweiss flower that grows only on daring steeps and mountaintops. Sacrifice, motivation, setting your own rules and getting ready for the game is something we challenge you to do every day, every time you pick up and spread your AIREX® mat or step on your AIREX® Balance-pad.
