Dr. Giorgio Squinzi, MAPEI Group ceo, and Garland Mayor Ronald Jones, cut the ribbon signifying the opening of MAPEI’s Garland plant expansion.

According to MAPEI, a recent expansion of its Garland, TX, facility was “in response to increased levels of demand from customers,” said Rainer Blair, president and ceo of MAPEI Americas.

He further noted, “Our Garland facility had been working near its capacity, and we feel this expansion is a step in the right direction for the future of MAPEI and our customers.”

To celebrate the completion of the construction, MAPEI threw a Texas-sized party. Customers, vendors, employees, civic dignitaries and visitors from MAPEI headquarters in Italy joined in the festivities, including MAPEI Group ceo Dr. Giorgio Squinzi and Mayor Ronald Jones, Garland, TX.
