The Commercial Courier April/May 2016 – Here at page 102-108 there is an article about one of our latest installations in Malta. It is a very interesting ansd succesful project, realized for Engel&Volkers Sara Grech Market Center.
Location is a key element in any business plan. Luckily enough Malta is an attractive destination for global companies looking to expand or shift their operations offshore. Afarak, a chrome producer supplying specialist products to the expanding steel and stainless steel industries approached E&V Sara Grech for assistance with their latest expansion to Malta.
Our experienced commercial agent – John Paul Barbara, with the assistance of Team Leader Patrik Tarcza proposed a high-end property in Ta’ Xbiex as the ideal location for Afarak to base their head office in Malta. This village is home to a number of foreign embassies, financial services companies and global igaming firms.
Speaking about their selection, Patrik Tarcza commented, “Ta’ Xbiex as a location provides the best of both worlds. It provides a quiet location close to the main hub of the Maltese economic activity while providing first-class services right at their doorstep”.
E&V Sara Grech Managing Director, Benjamin Tabone Grech explained,
“Malta is becoming synonymous with global corporations and firms which choose to relocate or expand here due to the advantageous tax rates/rebates and policies, multi-skilled workers, accessibility to European Union (EU) trade agreements and markets as well as its geographical location. In the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitive Index, Malta ranked 10th for bank reliability and 24th for market efficiency (2014). Malta is an English speaking county and has corporate legislation that conforms to EU company law and standards with a stable banking system. Our company is privileged to be part of an international global network which helps us provide an unequalled brokerage service”
