Italian manufacturer of adhesives, sealants and chemical products for the construction industry, Mapei has laid the groundwork for an expansion of UAE facilities on March 21, 2018. The company has invested more than USD 6.5 million for the expansion of its state-of-the-art production facility and new offices at the Dubai Investments Park.

The newly expanded facility adds space and also allows Mapei to enlarge its portfolio delivering innovative and locally designed solutions. The facility will comprise a showroom and training center, as well as a workplace for more than 120 employees from 22 different countries.
The company is focused on new opportunities being presented. These include the upcoming Expo 2020.
