WACO - Let's Gel, Inc., an Austin-based company, has acquired a 64,000-sf manufacturing facility location along Precision Dr. The facility marks the company's entrance into internal manufacturing, part of its strategy for vertical integration.

The company will create 35 jobs over a three-year period.

Let's Gel is a developer of gel-filled floor comfort mats. Founded in 2004, owner Robb McMahan wanted to create an anti-fatigue flooring solution.

"Waco was chosen for its central location, skilled workforce and a commitment from the area city business leaders in driving the local economy. We are very excited that Waco will be the exclusive manufacturer of our premium line of comfort mats," said McMahan.

Since production began, Let's Gel has sold more than 2 million mats to the residential, commercial and medical markets through direct sales at GelPro.com and through leading online, catalog and brick and mortar retailers, including Bed Bath and Beyond, JCPenney, Belk and more.
