MAPEI recently completed construction on an additional 44,000 square feet (4,088 m2) of warehouse, shipping and office space at its Delta, British Columbia, manufacturing facility in Canada, bringing the total footprint to 78,779 square feet (7,319 m2). A new Quality Control Laboratory is also included in the additional space.

“We have responded to the growth of two areas of our business in Western Canada – the flooring installation sector and the concrete restoration sector,” said Luigi Di Geso, president and CEO of MAPEI Americas. “As the premier manufacturer of tile and stone installation systems in Canada and as a rising presence in the concrete restoration market, we view this expansion as an opportunity to support and grow our relationships with construction partners in this area of the country.”

The Delta plant will continue to manufacture powdered mortars, powdered grouts, and related surface preparation products while expanding its production of concrete repair mortars, self-leveling underlayments/toppings, and other concrete restoration products. The plant currently produces 1.2 million lbs (544,311 kg) of powdered products per week. With the added space now available, the Delta facility will also warehouse and ship more liquid adhesives that are manufactured in other MAPEI Americas locations.

In addition to the expansion, Di Geso said the building is a candidate for LEED certification by the Canadian Green Building Council. The plant was able to reduce use of potable water for irrigation by 100% by using captured rainwater. MAPEI also reduced its material costs for the construction project by 30% through the use of recycled materials such as fly ash used in concrete and recycled structural steel and rebar.
