2020 was a year unlike any other. The Covid-19 pandemic catalysed everyone’s attention and heavily penalised the global economy, devastated all plans and changed, maybe for ever, the way we live and the way we work.
But in this unpredictable context Mapei managed to demonstrate, once again, that it is a solid and flexible company with the ability to adapt to changes efficiently, while always remaining faithful to its corporate strategy based on: Internationalisation, Specialisation, Research and Development, Sustainability.
For years we have been investing in our plants and facilities, digitalisation and training to maintain such a high level of efficiency, safety and quality. This has enabled us to never find ourselves unprepared when faced with an emergency.
Thanks to a winning combination of internationalisation and investments, we carried on operating and manufacturing in complete safety, to support our subsidiaries and make sure we could carry on supplying our clients all around the world, guaranteeing continuity for important construction sites and strategic infrastructure projects.
None of this would have been possible without the commitment of the wonderful Mapei “family”. Directors, management, every level and every corporate function put themselves on the line to carry on working together and to give their support to the company and to their colleagues, even when forced to work in entirely different conditions dictated by the pandemic. Exceptional teamwork of which we are all so proud.
For its part, Mapei gave proof of its enormous ability to react. We were quick to implement and share protocols aimed at keeping our people safe and we invested in equipment and technology to guarantee continuity to our work in complete safety, both in the workplace and remotely.
