Mapei Continues its Growth in Canada with Acquisition
Mapei Canada has purchased Diaplas, a manufacturer of profiles and trims for floors and walls.
“Diaplas’s existing customers will benefit from access to Mapei’s extensive distribution network, extensive research and development capabilities, and a broader range of products,” says Mapei Canada general manager Marco Roma. “Mapei, in turn, will gain valuable expertise and local production capacity of high-turnover inventory from Diaplas.”
Located in southwestern Quebec, Diaplas has been a key local player in the complementary tile accessories market since 1989. The company has one manufacturing site and administrative office in Laval.
The acquisition aligns with Mapei’s vision of providing comprehensive solutions for the construction and industrial sectors. Mapei manufactures adhesives, sealants and chemicals products for the construction industry. In 2022, the company purchased Profilpas, a European manufacturer of profiles and trims.
“With the addition of Diaplas’s specialized manufacturing centre in Canada under our portfolio, there will be opportunities for growth and development across North America in this new product category of profiles and trims,” says Luigi Di Geso, president and CEO of Mapei North America.
The integration process will involve a collaborative effort to leverage the strengths of both companies and streamline operations for increased efficiency, says Mapei.
