History/Our Story

“A history carved in stone”

Halmann Vella Group was born in 1954, over 60 years ago when Vincenzo Vella and his brother, from the village of Mgarr Malta, decided to start manufacturing tiles and bought a small tile making machine press.

The two brothers started producing terrazzo tiles, these being the most sought-after kind of tile at the time. As years went by and their business grew, the Vella brothers moved on to producing other forms of tiles, such as resin tiles, and eventually introducing the local market to marble and natural stone.
It was at this time that the Halmann success story started to be ‘carved in stone’, and the company became associated with high quality, innovation and professionalism.Today Halmann Vella Group is still a family business and is run by brothers Martin, Joseph and Mark Vella, who boast 30 years of experience in the industry.
Halmann treasures its 60 plus years of history in the business, and is today synonymous with the words such as marble, granite, terrazzo or just simply ‘tiles’. Nowadays, Halmann Vella Group proudly holds high the name of Maltese manufacturing and business prowess, in Malta and abroad.
