Invicta Ltd is a family run business established in 1947 by Publius Farrugia, who served in the Royal Air Force during the war. Following in his father’s footsteps in the brass foundry trade and after acquiring experience in the process of nickel and chrome plating, he started the manufacturing of various chrome plated fittings and ornaments for the decoration of public transport and private buses.
The year 1954 was a giant leap forward with the introduction of chrome tubular furniture, which led Invicta Works, as the firm was known at the time, becoming one of the most renowned furniture manufacturing firms on the Maltese islands. Complementing the range with home, hospital, cafeterias and office furniture was the fulfilment of the founder’s dream to expand the business of modern furniture.
Invicta Works was registered as a limited liability company in 1969 under the name of Invicta Ltd, now also with the second generation running the company which, then, employed over 100 trained employees, most of them tradesmen.
For the next 40 years, the company expanded and invested in the latest technology machinery until the time when statistics proved manufacturing was losing ground fast and production was no longer viable. Thus, manufacturing made way for the importation of knocked down furniture from a reputable company, the third largest in Europe represented locally by Invicta.
The business is now run by the family’s third generation, having a wealth of experience in the field, offering government departments/entities and the private sector with quality products and excellent after sales service to their satisfaction.
Workshops, stores and the main sales outlet are in the area of Msida, with complementing showrooms in Mosta and Qormi for the convenience of clients coming from the north and south of the island.
Invicta’s vision for the near future is to expand by widening its range of products to meet the local market’s demand.
