Enthusiasm, team spirit and always looking to the future. These are the foundations underpinning the success of a great company.
MAPEI is now among the world's leading manufacturers of chemical products for the building industry. We offer long-lasting high-quality products that are mindful of both the planet and people. We draw on this same expertise to contribute to the most important architectural and infrastructural works globally, including projects in the housing industry and renovation of historic buildings.
Every day we are focused on increasingly sustainable building in the name of innovation.
It was 1937 when Rodolfo Squinzi founded MAPEI - Materiali Ausiliari Per l'Edilizia e l'Industria (Auxiliary Materials for Building and Industry) in the outskirts of Milan – setting off on a path that would eventually make us a multinational company, champions of Italian excellence all over the world.
The facts and figures now speak for themselves: three generations of business entrepreneurs, manufacturing operations on five continents and more than 20 product lines to cater to everything the building industry needs.
Four cardinal points for charting our progress and ensuring we are always pioneers with our innovative, high-quality products and solutions, available worldwide and causing low environmental impact.
From the foundations to the roof
We offer specific products and systems to meet all the needs of the building industry. The quality and specialization of our product lines, together with the support and expertise of our people, mean we can handle all the main problems involved in building.
The path to innovation is through research. All over the world, our laboratories coordinated by the Corporate Research Centre in Milan study cutting-edge, long-lasting and high-quality products fully focused on their impact on the environment and the health of users.
Our vision embraces the entire world, reaching five continents – an internationalization strategy that has resulted in responsible growth as we respond to market and local demands and contribute to the development of local communities.
For us sustainability is a duty towards people and the planet; a commitment to future generations; a way of being and acting that translates into long-lasting projects, innovative products, staff wellbeing and comfortable living.
