Malta’s biggest printer announces €7 million investment

Malta’s biggest printing firm has announced plans to expand its operations, creating dozens of new jobs.

Gutenberg Press said it will invest €7 million in its two factories in Tarxien and Bulebel to meet soaring customer demand from the UK.

The company, which opened in Malta in 1982, specialises in printing books, magazines, high quality brochures and carton packaging.

From its beginnings as a one man printing press in a garage in Zabbar, Gutenberg Press now employs more than 120 staff.

Chief Operations Officer Boleslav Spiteri said: ‘We will be investing €3 million in the Bulebel factory extension and another €4 million in new efficient machinery.

‘We need more space to operate as our product needs a lot of space to provide the best quality service to our clients.’

The investment was announced during a visit by Prime Minister Joseph Muscat to the company’s printing plant in Tarxien.
