Mapei is proud to be sponsoring FITA throughout 2017. The non-profit making organization provides an important investment into the flooring industry, continually developing training courses whilst promoting up to date installation information and assistance to flooring professionals.

Mapei recognize the importance of passing on skills and best practice through training and demonstrations to the next generation of floor layers. Mapei’s Resilient Product Manager, John Monaghan, commented “The courses FITA offer provides a standard for the industry, along with important technical information about how Mapei products should be used to ensure the correct installation.”

FITA representatives, Richard Catt, Mick O’Flynn and Steve Robertson recently visited Mapei UK HQ. The visit included a full laboratory and factory tour showcasing the strict quality control and manufacturing processes which Mapei implement to ensure that Mapei product entering the market is only of the highest quality.

Richard Catt, CEO of the Contract Flooring Association said “We are delighted to welcome Mapei to the growing number of companies that sponsor FITA. It is extremely important that we have the support of leading brands such as Mapei and a win-win for delegates who attend FITA courses and use their products. Training with up to date, innovative products is obviously important and it is a fact that what fitters train with is what they are likely to use as they move through their careers. Perhaps as important is that the combined efforts of companies such as Mapei and training organisations such as FITA join together to add value and quality in to the supply chain”

• Smoothing compounds – Latexplan Trade, Ultraplan Renovation Screed 3240, Ultraplan Eco, Planiprep Skimcoat.
