Delta, BC, Mayor Lois E. Jackson; Dr. Giorgio Squinzi, ceo of MAPEI Group; and Luigi Di Geso, ceo of MAPEI Americas, cut the ribbon that signals the official opening of the MAPEI plant expansion.

MAPEI recently added 44,000 sq. ft. to the warehouse, shipping and office space at its Delta, British Columbia manufacturing facility, nearly doubling the total footprint to 78,779 sq. ft. A new quality control laboratory is also included in the space.

“We have responded to the growth of two areas of our business in Western Canada – the flooring installation sector and the concrete restoration sector,” said Luigi Di Geso, president and ceo of MAPEI Americas. “We view this expansion as an opportunity to support and grow our relationships with construction partners in this area of the country.”

The plant currently produces 1.2 million pounds of powdered products per week. The Delta facility will also warehouse and ship more liquid adhesives, which are manufactured in other MAPEI Americas locations.
