The iconic Burmarrad Commercials premises in Burmarrad came alive for a dazzling party on the evening of Friday 31st October, at an event to celebrate the company’s 30th anniversary.

H.E The President of Malta, Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, was the guest of honour at the event, which was hosted by the company’s charismatic CEO Mario Gauci and his family. As part of the proceedings, Mr Gauci gave an impassioned speech about his long journey with Burmarrad Commercials – a company he started in 1984. Mt Gauci continues to run the this well-established business today, along with his three adult children, Maria Gauci, Sharon Camilleri and Mario Gauci Jnr, who are now also company directors.  

Today Mr Gauci, along with his family and colleagues, has built Burmarrad Commercials to be Malta’s largest supplier of new and used vehicles, warehouse equipment and industrial machinery, as well as the official distributor and service partner of renowned brands such as Carrier Transicold, Schmitz CargoBull and Dhollandia.

Born out of a passion for the automotive world, Burmarrad Commercials is a family-run business operated by two generations of the Gauci family, still based in the family’s hometown of Burmarrad.

The 30th anniversary celebrations featured a special video presentation highlighting the company’s humble beginnings when Mr Gauci worked in his father’s farming business, through later trials as a continental truck driver, to the founding of the company and three decades of commitment, challenge and expansion. The video also focused on the visionary decisions made early in the company’s history that, today, have turned it into a hugely successful family corporation with deep roots in one of Malta’s oldest communities.

As a way of reflecting the company’s family values and sharing its success with less fortunate families within that community, Burmarrad Commercials chose to donate three vehicles, with a total value of €36,000, to The Malta Community Chest Fund. The donation includes a 15-seater mini bus with a ramp for wheelchair access, as well as two other vehicles designed for those with special needs together with a monetary donation. HE Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca accepted the donations on behalf of the charity, and was visually moved by the company’s dedication to helping the Maltese community.

Speaking at the event, Mr Gauci, who was surrounded by friends and family, enthused, “It is an incredible feeling to look back on all that has been achieved by the company over the last 30 years and to see the fruit of our hard work. Of course, a huge amount of thanks goes to my family, as well as to our extended team. It has been a wonderful journey so far and I look forward to what the future has to bring for Burmarrad Commercials in the years to come.”

Firmly established as one of Malta’s top corporations, Burmarrad Commercials will use this 30 milestone to reaffirm its commitment to customer service and quality. The company’s objective to offer an unrivalled one-stop service that exceeds expectations, meets the highest service standards, and offers value for money, remains proof that this is a company driven by passion for the family, business and the community.
