Edelmayer has been in the tile industry for over 30 years, specializing in sheet membranes for waterproofing, crack isolation and sound reduction. He is active in, and a voting member of, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Materials and Methods Standards Association (MMSA), ASTM International and the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) technical committees. Edelmayer has also worked on ISO standards and the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) Handbook.

In his new role with MAPEI, Edelmayer will be promoting existing sheet- membrane products and expanding the company’s sale of sheet membranes into new areas.

“Eric has the expertise to help us from both sales and technical perspectives,” said Carol Hould, director, national sales. “His technical knowledge of sheet membranes will be instrumental in helping us expand this category and in positioning our branding strategy as we develop an offering that extends from underground through the roof on construction sites.”
