MAPEI Corp. recently announced its acquisition of a new 200,000-sq-ft (18,581-m2) facility in Houston, Texas, that is designed for the manufacturing of powders and liquid admixtures. Currently in “phase one” of development as the manufacturing equipment is being installed, the facility reportedly holds the possibility for expansion in the future, according to Carlo Mandelli, director of operations.

“When it opens in 2023, this new facility will be an immense strategic asset for us in Houston’s expanding market,” Mandelli said.

According to Luigi Di Geso, president and CEO, “By the year 2023, the plant will be up and running, not only producing MAPEI products but also creating approximately 80 new jobs between direct and indirect labor. This Houston facility joins our Garland facility, expanding our Texas footprint and allowing us to serve our customers across the South, West and Central United States even more efficiently.”
