Commitment to R&D
MAPEI’s Commitment to Research and Development
Worldwide, MAPEI has always been an innovative company in the development of flooring installation and concrete restoration products.

To stay on the cutting edge of innovation, MAPEI reinvests 5% of its annual sales revenue into research and development of new products. The company's worldwide laboratories work on more than 150 new projects each year, with a commitment to produce outstanding new products in each of its three primary lines annually. This strategy keeps MAPEI one step ahead of the competition at all times.

In the Americas, MAPEI has established four Centers of Excellence for Research and Development:
  • Tile & Stone Installation Systems – Deerfield Beach, Florida
  • Floor Covering Installation Systems – Dalton, Georgia
  • Concrete Restoration Systems – Laval, Quebec
  • Urethane Wood Adhesives – Garland, Texas
In each of these Centers of Excellence, MAPEI researchers work continuously to develop new products that enhance the installer’s work routine.

For example, MAPEI's BioBlock™ technology has been added to select products to help protect them from mold and mildew, improving the indoor air quality for building occupants.
FastTrack Ready™ products have been designed to minimize the number of steps involved in installations and/or reduce the time required for installers to complete the job.

And products developed with Ultralite Technology™ are lightweight, high-performing and easy to use, providing extended coverage at the same product weight as traditional products.
A Commitment to Quality
Over the years, MAPEI has been devoted to ensuring the quality of its products and services to meet customers’ needs. In 1995 MAPEI Inc. began working toward ISO 9001 standard for quality management systems certification, and in 1996 the company achieved its goal for the plants in Canada's Quebec and British Columbia. All the work was done in parallel with the ISO certification for MAPEI in Italy, which was completed in 1995.

Following in the footsteps of the European and Canadian divisions, ISO 9001 certification has been achieved for the MAPEI Corporation headquarters in Deerfield Beach, Florida, as well as manufacturing facilities in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Texas, Virginia, Ontario and Puerto Rico. ISO 9001 is the most comprehensive and demanding standard for quality management systems, developed to ensure continuous improvement and customer satisfaction.
