Halmann Vella named National Champion in the European Business Awards 2016/17
Halmann Vella has been named a National Champion for Malta in The European Business Awards, sponsored by RSM. This is Europe’s largest business competition set up to celebrate business excellence and best practice in the European business community.
The Award, now in its 10th year, is supported by business leaders, academics and political representatives from across Europe, and this year engaged with over 33,000 businesses from 34 countries.
Halmann Vella has been chosen after the first phase of judging by an independent panel. They were evaluated on the core EBA values of innovation, ethics and success and will now go through to the second stage of the competition, which includes a video and a public vote.
With a history spanning almost 60 years and a name synonymous with marble and granite, traditional patterned tiles and other natural stone and surfacing materials, nowadays Halmann Vella continues to satisfy the requirements of discerning Maltese and foreign clients. Apart from residential projects, the company has also been involved in a number of large commercial projects such as Portomaso, the Midi Project, Smart City and Renzo Piano’s Valletta City Gate,
Joseph Tabone, CEO of Halmann Vella said “We’re very proud to be selected to represent Malta as a National Champion. We remain committed to providing the best quality and service to our customers.”
The next round requires the National Champions to make a presentation video, telling their unique story and explaining their business success. The Awards’ independent judges will award the best of this group the ‘Ruban d’Honneur’ status and the selected companies will then go on to the Gala Final in 2017.
Separately, in a two stage public vote, the videos will be hosted on the European Business Awards website, and the company which receives the most votes in their country will become the ‘National Public Champion’. Last year over 227,000 votes were cast as companies were supported globally by their clients, staff and peers, as well as the general public.
