Business Profile

I am a warranted mechanical engineer with expertise in industrial automation, robotics and product development. As soon as IBG initiated its operations in 2015, I joined the company as a robotics engineer, developing factory simulations, robot programs and various software solutions. As one of the initial employees of IBG Malta, I had the opportunity to support the establishment and growth of the company first hand. Following the completion of my doctoral degree, I was appointed as the Director of IBG Automation Malta Ltd. Together with the team members of the company, IBG constantly designs and develops innovative automation solutions for leading manufacturers involved in the automotive, pharmaceutical, and semi-conductor industries, amongst others.
