In response to increased demand, Mapei has expanded the size of its Garland, Texas, plant to double its previous square footage.
The new expansion provides more room for the warehousing and shipping departments, and 4 million pounds of products are expected to be shipped from the plant every week. In addition, a state-of-the-art urethane-products production line has been added to the original line to meet a growing demand for wood-flooring adhesives. The second line will allow the plant to double its urethane product capacity. Three old shipping bays now provide space for recycling drums, totes and pallets from raw-material deliveries.
At a party held to commemorate the opening, guests were treated to a luncheon and a tour of the plant.
