About us

Andrew Vassallo founded the business in 1986. The origins lie in a small workshop in a residential garage in Qormi  with the production of basic steel works such as steel doors, gates, security grills and trolleys.

By time opportunities soared and the company was involved in bigger projects such as St. Helen’s Gate, Housing Authority offices, Sant’ Antnin Recycling Plant, Hal Far Customs Groupage Bond, Batching Plants for Schembri Holdings, St. James Cavalier Valletta and Victoria Mansions.

Today the 40-strong complement of people provide solutions to various clientele ranging from aluminium, wrought iron and uPVC structures to stocking and provision of construction material for industrial and domestic use.
