MAPEI announces the acquisition of a new 200,000 sq. ft. facility in Houston for the manufacturing of powders and liquid admixtures. Currently in “phase one” of development as the manufacturing equipment is being installed, the facility holds the possibility for expansion in the future, according to Carlo Mandelli, MAPEI 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 noted.
Located northwest of the city along the Beltway 8 corridor, this facility will create jobs for some of the fastest-growing suburbs in the Houston area: Kingwood, Humble and Atascocita.
“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,” said Luigi Di Geso, MAPEI president and CEO. “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.”
The facility in Houston joins construction nearing the final stages at MAPEI facilities in Dalton, Ga., and Fredericksburg, Va.—both of which will also be full-production facilities, according to the company.
