“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 87 subsidiaries with 81 production facilities in 35 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 development of solvent-free products dates back to the 1970’s.
