About Us

Melfar, or Carmelo Farrugia Melfar Ltd, has evolved since 1930 to meet the demands of an ever changing business environment. From a pioneering company in elevator, escalator and electrical installations to one of Malta’s leading mechanical and electrical turnkey project developers, we are now venturing into the ‘green economy’ with a focus on eco-friendly vehicles, modern accessibility technologies and support.

Our Thyssen chair, platform and stair-lifts have been installed in some of Malta’s leading businesses and homes to make life easier for those with mobility problems, including the President’s Palace Kitchen Garden.

Recently our venture into electric vehicles extended our mobility aims by providing cost effective and green motorised four and two-wheeled scooters, bikes and other special needs equipment for mobility.

Melfar remains a family-run business to this day, with three generations of Farrugia’s at the help since Carmelo started the business in 1930. We believe in an honest and customer focussed approach to doing business. We are a medium sized operation, but very dedicated to people who choose us. For more information please contact us here
