As an island with no natural resources to speak of with the exception of its workforce, Malta has moved from low-end manufacturing to high value-added operations over the last twenty years. Today, the industry is focused on high-end manufacturing such as precision engineering and electronics, pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
Close to 3,000 manufacturing and distribution companies operate in Malta, employing around 15 per cent of the labour force. The industry is made up of market leaders in high-tech production with a strong international reputation, transforming the islands into a centre of manufacturing excellence in the Mediterranean. Among those that have made Malta their home one can find important names such as Methode Electronics, Trelleborg and Abertax Quality.
