Happy Birthday Mapei, 75 years of excellence

Happy Birthday Mapei, 75 years of excellence

On the 15th February 2012 Mapei will celebrate their 75th anniversary. From humble beginnings Mapei has grown from a small family business into a multinational operation within this time - becoming one of the worlds’ leading manufacturers of adhesives and chemical products for the building industry.

Established in 1937 just outside of Milan, it was here that Mapei’s foundations and values were created. These values encompass creativity, competence, passion and flexibility and are still promoted within the company today. It is these basic principles that continue to influence the company’s success and accounts for their annual 1.9 billion euro turnover from across its 68 subsidiaries -with 58 plants, in 27 countries, across five continents.

The UK is home to Mapei's 47th manufacturing plant worldwide, based in Halesowen. Mapei first entered the UK market in 1989 with the aim to maximise their proximity, fulfil the UK’s local market needs and to reduce logistic costs. In this time Mapei has advanced in the UK to have a major prominence in the ceramic and soft flooring markets. Mapei’s UK manufacturing facilities in Halesowen are now capable of producing up to 103,000 tonnes of product annually. And following in the Mapei Group’s standards of quality management have achieved ISO9001 and ISO14001 for the UK facility.

Mark Louch, Mapei’s UK Managing Director commented “Mapei have reached yet another incredible milestone, and our intention is to expand our product lines in the UK and indeed throughout the world. We thank all those who have helped Mapei to grow, and keep on growing and endeavour to continue to provide innovating and ecologically sound building solutions without losing the distinctive traits which made us so successful.”
