MAPEI has a long history of success that has been largely brought about by hard work and the unwavering dedication of generations of thoughtful innovators. Over the decades they have passed the baton of MAPEI knowledge to the next generations of leaders in the organization. While MAPEI has grown into a global organization, many of the founding principles, industry methods, technologies and core values that have led to our success are still deeply entwined in the birthplace of MAPEI – Milan, Italy. For this reason, MAPEI Canada collaborates extensively with Italian counterparts and other global sites to offer on-the-job, on-site training abroad. In addition to providing in-depth technical training, these engagements provide our employees with an opportunity to build strong relationships with their international colleagues and to gain a deeper appreciation on MAPEI’s historical path to the current day.
Luigi Di Geso, President and CEO, MAPEI North America

Combining their personal passion for soccer with the company’s philosophy of good corporate citizenship, a group of co-workers from the Brampton, Ontario plant led by Gaspare Clemenzi, helped raise funds for not one, but two good causes: Autism Ontario, Ottawa chapter; and the Canadian Cancer Society. MAPEI employees participated in a spirited soccer event held at the BMO field in Toronto, on July 21st, 2019, and were able to present the two charities with matching donations of $1,000.
