Local natural stone supplier Halmann Vella announced the completion of renovation and expansion works on its showroom in Lija.
These works, the company said, were implemented to ‘better showcase the company’s burgeoning range of products.’
“At Halmann Vella we work and collaborate closely with Malta’s top architects and designers. Through the renovations, which will allow us to display a wide range of products, we will be providing a unique experience,” Group CCO Owen Farrugia said.
This milestone happens to coincide with the company’s introduction of ceramic slabs to its list of products as well as its launch of premium quality bathroom wares.
Mr Farrugia, a long-standing member of the Halmann Vella Group Executive Team, has worked with the company for over 20 years.
During his career he has undertaken a number of roles in operations, sales, and marketing, before being recently appointed as CCO for Retail.
“The Group’s strength has been the ability to evolve and exploit its 67-year history. We continue to expand our range of products, surfacing the most beautiful spaces with pride and passion,” Group CEO Kevin Rapinett said.
“Mr Farrugia has a wealth of experience in the industry and, through his appointment as CCO for Retail, he will take on a broader set of organisational responsibilities overseeing the end-to-end process of the customer journey,” he concluded.
He takes over from Alejandro Gosttuski, who will now take on the role of an Advisor.
The company, set to launch soon, will seek to provide clients with ‘customer-centric and innovative’ financial services.

Family businesses account for more than 70% of Malta’s SMEs, and are hence vital components of the local economy.
