Mapei building products started in February 12, 1937 by Rodolfo Squinzi, a young man who set out to make his name in the building industry. He was a family businessman from Milan, Italy. Squinzi felt that there was a void in the local construction industry and he wanted to fill this void through the manufacture of interior and exterior paints along with masonry repair products for commercial buildings, hospitals and airports.

Mapei building products expanded with time with Squinzi’s vision of manufacturing adhesives for laying floor tiles and products for other floor coverings.

Starting with adhesives for linoleum followed by setting materials for ceramic tiles, stone, carpet, PVC and wood, Squinzi made sure he was always a step ahead by making it his personal mission in identifying new trends in the building and flooring industry. He kept on producing and bringing new products to sell meeting the new demands and challenges at that time.

Today, Mapei building products is headed by Dr. Giorgio Squinzi, Rodolfo Squinzi’s son, as the world leader in the manufacture of mortars, adhesives, grouts, sealants, waterproofing agents, additives for concrete and other specialty products in the building industry. Mapei stayed to be a family owned business until today and is generating almost two billion dollars in revenue annually.
