Italian manufacturer, Profilpas’ range of profiles and systems will be launched as part of Mapei UK’s portfolio. The accessories will complement floor and tiling projects, and will include design-led skirting boards, LED light profiles, shower systems, spacers and levelling systems for floors and walls.
Part of the Mapei Group since September 2022, Profilpas is renowned for its high-quality products, innovative designs and commitment to sustainability – core qualities which both manufacturers share. The new partnership will help Profilpas to grow its business in the UK and will provide access to Mapei’s global distribution network, marketing expertise and resources. Equally, Mapei will be able to extend its range with additional designer installation products, so that it can serve professionals and distribution partners more effectively.
Mapei’s commitment to sustainability is reflected by its long history of developing solvent-free and low VOC emission products using recycled materials and renewable energy, and has expanded through Mapei’s new ‘Zero Line’ with fully off-set CO2 emissions. Many of Profilpas’ popular ranges are also manufactured with recycled materials and together; the two manufacturers are well-positioned to create a more sustainable future for the building industry.
Barbara and Marco Pasquali, CEOs of Profilpas, state: “We firmly believe that joining the Mapei Group will provide us with new opportunities for growth and development. Our goal is to promote the Profilpas brand and technologies all over the world”.
Marco and Veronica Squinzi, CEOs of Mapei, conclude: “The takeover of Profilpas and its subsidiaries falls in line with our strategy of growth through targeted acquisitions to strengthen our group in terms of markets and products. Having two additional factories in Italy and Poland, and working with local businesses, will definitely make us more able to respond to market needs and work even more closely with our clients.”
