Mapei Group: a formidable team that thrives on challenges

For 80 years we have firmly believed that “quality in construction work” has been our main competitive edge.
This is why we are the world leader in the building industry.

Mapei’s growth has been constant because it is based on values from the past that have the merit of still being relevant today.

Our history

Founded in Milan in 1937, Mapei is today the world leader in the production of adhesives and chemical products for the building industry. We implemented our internationalisation strategy in the 1960’s and this has enabled us to be closer to the needs of regional markets and reduce transport costs to a minimum. The Group now has 82 subsidiaries with 79 production facilities in 34 different countries. We have always placed a lot of emphasis on research. In fact, we channel 5% of annual turnover into Research & Development and 70% of our research work is aimed at the development of eco-sustainable and eco-compatible products.

Our values

Mapei’s values can be experienced at first hand and are represented in our daily mission: to play a key role in improving the quality of people’s lives by creating increasingly sustainable chemical products for the construction industry. Values we wish to share with the market, our clients, our suppliers and all those people and organisations we collaborate with.

Our Brands

The following brands are also part of Mapei Group, brands which have been acquired over the years as part of the Group’s clear strategy based on Internationalisation, Specialisation and Research & Development. Production levels have increased over the years, above all to integrate the supply of strategic raw materials upstream in the manufacturing chain, which in turn has enabled us to increase our range of products.
