The inauguration of Dar San Ġużepp, an elderly home built in Għajnsielem, took place on Thursday morning with Prime Minister Robert Abela officiating.

Ħal Far Operators Relocated As Part Of Car Track Project
Apr 11 2024 Share

Two operators in the Ħal Far industrial zone, Attrans and White Brothers, are undergoing relocation as part of the car track project. Minister for Education, Sports, Youth, Research, and Innovation Clifton Grima, along with Minister for the Economy, Investment, and Strategic Projects Silvio Schembri, recently visited the site where these two operators will be relocated following the termination of their lease by INDIS.

This site, spanning approximately 27,000 square meters, is critical for both companies operating in the transport and logistics sector, making it essential that their new location remains within the same area.

This relocation process ensures a seamless transition for both operators. Minister Clifton Grima emphasized the collaborative effort with various entities.

“The work on the car track is progressing smoothly, and to ensure that we achieve our goals, it is crucial that we work with other important contributors. Among these are individuals who have land that needs to be transferred to SportMalta for the development of the track circuit.

This land is therefore an integral part of what will become the Sports Complex for those who are passionate about this sport in our country.” Minister Silvio Schembri thanked INDIS for leading this relocation.

“This project underscores the importance of the car track project, as well as that of private operators. With INDIS’s involvement, we are closer to realizing the dream of the track, and at the same time, we ensure that the operators being relocated experience as little inconvenience as possible, allowing their operations to continue smoothly during the transition.”

The process involved approximately 1,500 truckloads of earthworks, costing around €1.5 million.

From Vascas To Heir & Loom: Promise Of Enduring Value

From Vascas To Heir & Loom: Promise Of Enduring Value
Apr 11 2024 Share

The name “Heir and Loom” is more than a title; it’s a promise of enduring value. Derived from the term “heirloom,” it reflects the brand’s commitment to creating jewellery that withstands the test of time—it’s an investment, a legacy to be passed down from one generation to another.

Mr. Mark Vassallo, the founder and director of Heir & Loom, previously co-founded Vascas alongside Mr. Arthur Castillo. The two knew each other as they worked in the same sector, until one day they decided to join forces and opened the well established household name of Vascas.

After 30 successful years, Mr. Vassallo decided it was time to move on from the name and open up a new establishment under the name of ‘Heir & Loom’, together with his 3 dedicated children who have always shown interest in the business – Becky, Nicky and Andy. Becky oversees online auctions, Nicky performs the role of Business Development Manager, and Andy is a certified gemologist from GIA.

Former patrons of Vascas have seamlessly migrated their loyalty to Heir & Loom. While the retail experience may differ, Heir & Loom’s unwavering commitment to exceptional service and product excellence remains unchanged. Continual innovation and an eye for quality propel the brand toward its aspiration of becoming a household name in the jewellery sector.
