MAPEI, a global leader in adhesives, sealants and chemical products for the building industry, is set to base its new offices at Dubai Investments Park (DIP), the largest integrated business and residential community in the Middle East.
A part of MAPEI’s expansion plans in high-growth markets, the new 12,000 sq. feet office space will help centralize and consolidate operations to cater to the UAE market more efficiently. The relocation of the offices from Al Qouz complements MAPEI’s upgrading of its 40,000 sq. meter state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, also housed at DIP, with a wide range of technologically advanced products and services.
Omar Al Mesmar, General Manager, Dubai Investments Park, said: “DIP has emerged as an important business hub, which is evident from the host of global and regional industry leaders that have set up operations within the Park. As a self-contained business zone, we offer tenants unmatched facilities and ancillary services.
“MAPEI has been a valued business partner for several years now and our collaboration has been mutually beneficial. The relocation of its corporate offices at DIP is a testimony to our commitment towards our business partners and takes our partnership to the next level. We hope to continue this steadfast corporation with MAPEI and hope them success in their venture.”
Stefano Iannacone, Managing Director, MAPEI, said: “By shifting our offices to Dubai Investments Park, where we already have an established manufacturing unit, we can fully reap the benefits of a more centralized unit while demonstrating our continued commitment to delivering industry-leading products and value-added services to the market.
“We are now fully equipped to manufacture specially developed adhesives and related products that match the requirements of our customers in the UAE and across the region. Going forward, we will continue to aggressively invest in new technology and knowledge to maintain our competitive edge as a global leader in the production of adhesives, sealants and chemical products for building.”
In June 2008, MAPEI, through its subsidiary Innovative Building Solutions (IBS), marked its foray into the Middle East and set up the manufacturing facility at DIP at a cost of Dhs150m.
The company has been involved in some of the most challenging construction projects in the UAE, including the Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa, Emirates Palace Hotel, the Grand Mosque, Qasr El Sarab resort, Atlantis – The Palm, Burj Al Arab, Ferrari World as well as the Dubai International Airport Terminals 1, 2 and 3.
