History- Autostyle car mats, from 1991 to 2011

Autostyle Unique Car Mats was started by Mr Roger Raggett in 1991 as a sideline to Image & Identity, a corporate clothing business

As business increased steadily, the first embroidery machine was purchased in 1992
The name Unique was dropped and the business was going to be known as just Autostyle Car Mats,
with an updated logo

In 1995 a custom software system was written to cope with the sheer volume of orders that poured in and the first Autostyle website went live
And we updated
our logo again
By visiting car club shows through the summer period and national shows in the winter, the business grew rapidly
Major new customers started finding us, with many car clubs and tuning companies offering Autostyle mats to their members and customers
In 2001, Autostyle was sold by Roger Raggett to Saxon Industries (well known for the 'Magic Tree TM'-air freshener)
a division of H Young PLC and the factory was moved from Old Sarum to Hungerford
Then followed a period of consolidation, focusing on further improving the quality of the products, manufacturing more mainstream product ranges and servicing corporate customers
And yes, we updated our logo again...  
In 2007, Saxon Industries recognized that Autostyle didn't fit into their core business anymore and the decision was made to find a buyer for the business
In November 2007, Autostyle was bought by
Pattern One Ltd. and the factory was moved to Buckingham.
In February 2008, a state-of-the-art Swiss-made CNC cutting machine was commissioned, enabling Autostyle to reduce the lead time on orders, whilst improving the quality of the products even further
In May 2008, Autostyle introduced its lambswool range, targeting drivers of luxury vehicles, limousines and classic cars. The new range fits in between the Sheepskin rugs and the Premier range
Due to continued expansion, the business outgrew the premises in Buckingham and in December 2009, the entire factory was moved to a larger facility in Milton Keynes
Through the years, we've worked on projects for major OEM customers, such as Lamborghine UK, Marcos Cars, Morgan, TVR, Mercedes-Benz, Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Aston Martin and Lotus Cars

Now in 2011, we celebrate Autostyle's 20th anniversary as a recognized quality brand. From our modern production facility and with very experienced staff we manufacture our mats for specialist retailers, car dealers, prestige car specialists, OEM customers, importers and last but not least thousands of car enthusiasts.

We ship our mats worldwide to people who recognize
a quality product when they see one.

Thank you for your trust in us in the past 20 years,
and we are looking forward to the coming 20 years.
