The Polidano brothers, Charles and Paul entered the construction industry under the company name of Polidano Brothers in 1977 with the launch of a small construction firm capable of handling modest projects. The enterprising brothers realized, even in those early days, that the future lay in providing mechanically oriented services to a burgeoning construction industry. In sharp contrast to what was happening on the international scene, most construction work in Malta was still performed manually until the mid 80’s.
With several major infrastructure projects about to come on stream, the strategy of introducing most cost effective, labour-saving heavy equipment made good business sense. This strategy quickly earned the industry’s trust and respect, including the finest and most discerning architectural firms and many international companies who chose Polidano Brothers ltd. as their working partners for projects in Malta. One major project followed another, culminating in national infrastructure feats that set the benchmark for others to match. Such projects as the new Power Station in Delimara, the Malta International Airport and the Malta Freeport, the latter two as a member of NOVITA Co. Ltd., the first construction consortium ever established in Malta, became early testaments to the quality and efficiency associated with Polidano Brothers Ltd.
The vision of an even more efficient and cost effective enterprise led Polidano Brothers to embark on a rational investment programme in construction related industries giving rise to a holistic approach that is unique within the construction industry in Malta. Due to the rapid succession of diversification undertaken by Polidano Brothers, the Polidano Group was established in 1987 as the umbrella organization responsible for the new business services, investments, development and acquisitions. The Group has become one of Malta’s leading manufacturers, major importers and suppliers of a wide range of construction materials in Malta.
The pursuit of excellence has always been a high priority within the company, and the awarding of ISO 9002 Certification by the British Standards Institute in 1997 to five companies within the Group is one more example of the Polidano Brothers pursuit of excellence in all things relating to quality and efficiency. No other enterprise in Malta can boast to achieving such a high concentration of ISO Certification. This represents yet another “first” attained by the Polidano Group.
The diversification, accomplishments and experience the Group has gained over the years ensure its dominant position within the market and a formidable edge over the competition.
