La storia di Mapei in Italia

A family business on an international scale

Mapei, which was founded in 1937, is based in Milan, the city where it came into being and made its mark on the market for chemical products for the building industry, notably for its adhesives for ceramics.

Now, with revenue of approximately €760 million, the Group operates all over Italy through 10 companies equating to a total of 11 factories, 6 Research & Development centres and 2,557 staff.

Veronica and Marco, the third generation of the Squinzi family, are continuing the family tradition by heading the company as CEOs of the Group and its Italian organisation.

The heart of the Group

Mapei is the Group’s leading company in Italy with 11 offices and 1,500 staff.
