Mapei in Australia

Mapei Australia was established on the 20th April 1993 as a sales office located on the Gold Coast in Queensland.

After supplying Mapei product to many prestigious projects such as the Melbourne Aquatic Centre, Brisbane International Airport and the Palazzo Versace Hotel on the Gold Coast and with the long history of Mapei subsidiaries supplying adhesives and related products to the Commonwealth and Olympic Games venues, Mapei were commissioned to supply primers, levelling compounds, adhesives, grouts and silicone sealants for the upcoming 2000 Sydney Olympic Games venues.

These venues included the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Aquatic Centre including the Competition and Diving pools, the Sydney Superdome, the Olympic Village, the State Hockey Centre, the Sydney International Airport, the Lidcombe Railway Station as well as various new apartment buildings that were constructed to accommodate visiting spectators.
