We manufacture bituminous waterproofing membranes, coatings, sealants, and mastics.



A brief timeline through LAMA's history

  • 1963

    Establishment of LAMA

    LAMA is a family-owned business with a rich history and a strong foundation in science and engineering. Founded by Dr. Zafer Sawaf in 1963, LAMA has been innovating and improving upon asphalt-based products for over 50 years.

    Dr. Sawaf is a highly respected and accomplished chemical engineer, with a Ph.D. from Purdue University and years of experience working in the Ministry of Industry. He also served as the Secretary-General of the Arab Standards and Metrology Organization (ASMO) in Jordan, where he gained valuable insights and expertise in the field. His knowledge and experience have been instrumental in helping LAMA to develop and produce top-quality products.

    Today, LAMA continues to be guided by the same principles of excellence and innovation that have driven the company since its founding, and we are committed to delivering the best products and services to our customers every day.



  • 1985

    First producer of waterproofing membranes in the region

    LAMA has a long history of innovation and experimentation in the field of construction waterproofing, and our efforts have resulted in the development of high-quality coatings and mastics that have gained significant traction in the market. After a decade of hard work and dedication, we reached a major milestone by adding our first membrane production line to our factory, being the first producer of waterproofing membranes in the region. 


  • 2006

    A holistic approach to manufacturing

    This year fortified LAMA’s holistic approach to manufacturing that encompasses every aspect of the production process. This includes designing, building, and operating our own production lines and factories. By taking control of these critical elements, we were able to install and operate a production line LAMA built in-house.

    Our in-house design and engineering teams work closely with our production and operations teams to create and implement efficient and effective processes that allow us to be accomplish a self-sufficient approach to manufacturing that sets us apart in the industry.



  • 2022

    LAMA becomes a global manufacturer of waterproofing materials

    LAMA is now a global manufacturer of waterproofing materials, with a strong presence in the Middle East and a growing presence in North America. 

    As we have expanded our operations, we have remained committed to our core values of quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction. 

    We are proud to be a trusted supplier of construction waterproofing products to customers all over the world, and we look forward to continuing to grow and succeed with our customers in the future.


Our Vision

At LAMA, our goal is to provide local markets with high-quality, reliable, and cost-effective waterproofing solutions. We achieve this through our commitment to three principles:

  • circular economy
  • advanced manufacturing
  • decentralized manufacturing.


We are passionate about circular economy and the benefits it brings to both our business and the environment. We believe that waste should be treated as a resource, and we strive to incorporate as many recycled materials as possible into our production process. We work closely with our suppliers to source materials that meet our high standards, and our ultimate goal is to create products that are entirely made from recycled components. We are committed to continuously improving our practices and finding new ways to reduce waste and reuse resources.



We are committed to using advanced manufacturing techniques to produce the highest quality products. We design, assemble, and install our production lines and machinery in-house, using modular, easy-to-ship components that are optimized for space and efficiency.

We are constantly striving to improve and innovate, and we are working towards the goal of fully automating our plant in order to achieve optimal quality and performance. We use data analytics to measure key performance indicators and identify opportunities for improvement, and we are iteratively automating key processes to increase efficiency and reduce the risk of errors.

Our advanced manufacturing approach allows us to deliver products that meet the highest standards of quality and performance, while also reducing costs and improving sustainability. We are proud to be a leader in this field, and we are committed to continuously improving our processes and technologies.



We understand that the cost of transporting products to customers is significant, especially when the products are heavy or low-priced. That’s why we have adopted a decentralized microfactory model to offer our customers cost-efficient products.

By locating our microfactories in areas of high demand and supplying the local market only, we are able to significantly reduce transportation costs and pass those savings on to our customers. This approach also allows us to produce products closer to our customers, which minimizes the environmental impact of transportation.

We believe that our decentralized microfactory model is not only cost-effective, but it also helps to support local communities and create jobs. We are proud to be a leader in this field, and we are committed to continuously improving our processes and technologies to deliver the best value to our customers.



At LAMA, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of quality in everything we do. That’s why we have implemented a Quality Management System based on ISO9001:2015 standards, which ensures that we consistently deliver products and services of the highest quality across all of our plants.

Every member of our team is trained in and committed to our Quality Policy values, and we have strict processes in place to ensure that we always meet or exceed our customers’ expectations. We are proud to be ISO9001:2015 certified, and we are committed to continuous improvement in everything we do.

When you choose LAMA, you can be confident that you are getting the best quality products and services available, backed by our commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction.



We take quality very seriously, which is why we emphasize testing and monitoring at every stage of the manufacturing process. Our cutting-edge lab is at the heart of our operation, where we test every batch of raw materials and finished products to ensure that they meet or exceed industry standards.

All of our products are tested in-house and meet ASTM and CSA standards, ensuring they are of the highest quality and safe to use. We are proud to provide products that meet or exceed the most stringent standards, and we are dedicated to continuous improvement to ensure that our customers always receive the highest quality products.

We believe that quality is the foundation of our success, and we are committed to maintaining it.
