Deerfield Beach, Fla. -- MAPEI has expanded company operations with two new locations in Georgia and Florida. Both locations will initially operate as warehouses, providing local support for customers, expediting shipments and facilitating continued growth in North America. These facilities will shortly transition into plants to increase MAPEI’s production capabilities.
The first of two locations stands at 100,000 sq ft on 18.29 acres in Wildwood, Fla., with plans to expand the facility to 260,000 sq ft. Located north of Tampa, the facility will significantly increase product availability and services to customers in northern Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and other surrounding states. The Wildwood acquisition also includes significant acreage for future expansion.
The second location is a 210,000-sq-ft building on 21.31 acres in Calhoun, Ga. “This facility will immediately operate as a warehouse, but it will transition to become our new plant for manufacturing products for resilient flooring as well as other products,” said Luigi Di Geso, president and CEO of MAPEI North America. “This location will be developed with the latest production equipment and will feature a state-of-the-art laboratory.”
With these latest acquisitions, MAPEI operates 13 plants and warehouses in the U.S. Plans for further expansions are forthcoming, according to Di Geso.
