Mapei has made its presence felt since 1989 when Mapei Far East Pte Ltd was constituted in Singapore as the Regional Headquarters to develop the company’s business in the region. It started off as a commercial subsidiary with a modest area of 500m² consisting of the warehouse and office. In 1995, the factory was established in one of Singapore’s pioneer industrial zones in Tuas, Jurong, in the western part of Singapore. Total area is 10,000m².
Entering the third millennium in 2000, Mapei, after having established its reputation in Singapore as the world’s leading producer of Adhesives, embarked on strategies for introducing their technologies as a leading player for a wide range of chemical products for construction. Mapei Far East commenced on the development of the Building Line and Admixtures.
Subsequently, in 2003, the Underground Technology Team (U.T.T.) regional base was set up in Singapore. UTT offers a full range of technical service and products to the shotcrete and TBM tunnel industry. This was followed in 2006 by the setting up of the Cement Additives Division regional base to service the cement factories in this region led by a Regional Director.
