Local science company Evolve has kickstarted 2022 with the acquisition of Tua Engineering – a Malta-based company which specialises in the manufacture and installation of water treatment systems.
Tua’s current focus is providing services such as reverse osmosis, water filtration, wastewater, and desalination systems to industry, homes, hotels, leisure centres, offices, hospitals, and other major public buildings.
“This combination of two best-in-class companies, at a time when they are both operating from a position of strength, is a unique opportunity,” Evolve Chief Visionary Officer Christopher Busuttil Delbridge said.
“We are looking forward to combining the skillsets and abilities of Tua Engineering and the Evolve teams as part of our strategy to grow our business in 2022 and expand into exciting new industries. The vertical integration of our water treatment solutions is a great step into the direction we want to take,” he continued.
Based in Paola’s Kordin Industrial Estate, Tua Engineering presently employs 10 people and has more than 700 clients in Malta and overseas, including The Bahamas, Barbados, and Libya.
“We have a great team here at Tua Engineering and we have been looking to progress to the next level, yet retain our customer-focused approach to doing business,” Tua Engineering Founder Arthur Tua said.
“From products and services to customer end markets and culture, there are just so many ways in which we align and complement each other for the betterment of our clients,” he continued.
The Evolve Chief concluded by saying that the company’s latest acquisition will greatly aid it in meeting the changing needs and demands of clients.
“This is a great time to become part of the Evolve family,” he said.
Family businesses account for more than 70% of Malta’s SMEs, and are hence vital components of the local economy.
Astrid and Juanito Camilleri said the strong reviews are resulting in steady export growth.
The bank also appointed a new Head of Internal Audit.
He has also been appointed Board Member at JA Europe.
