Mapei’s new extended quality control laboratory is fully open

Mapei are pleased to announce the opening of its newly extended and modernised Quality Control Laboratory.

This expansion makes the Mapei UK QC Laboratory the largest of the European subsidiaries, and is testament to the group’s continued commitment to quality, testing and improvement.

The Laboratory will facilitate extra equipment and new test methods to support the increase of business demand and growth. The 60m² extension (from the original 100m²) has been planned, designed and carried out over the last 18 months, and includes two new state-of-the-art conditioning units along with a complete facelift of the Laboratory including new floors, ceilings, lighting, sinks, extra benches as well as new testing equipment.

The first step of the Laboratory extension involved the removal of the current central wall to incorporate the unconditioned room, adjacent to the main Laboratory, to increase the conditioned area from 100m² to 160m². The improved space will be dedicated to testing activities in an efficient way and also provide more room for additional machinery to be added.

This Laboratory is fully opened and will allow an increase of R&D activity and testing demands as required by the market and increase the range of Mapei products in the UK construction industry.

Mapei strive to minimise its carbon footprint to help work towards a ‘greener’ future with its extensive investment (5 per cent of group turnover per annum) in R&D into the development of solvent-free and low emissions products. In addition, these standards comply with local and government policies.
