About us

Since 1947

  • Founded in 1947 and started out by repairing war-damaged doors and apertures, along with contracts from the British services in Malta and in Libya, where a showroom was eventually set up.
  • George Galea and his brothers Louis and Joseph, founded the company and were followed into the business by younger brothers Vincent and Albert.
  • 60’s: the brothers were joined by Maurice de Giorgio who brought in new products and expertise to the company.
  • Contract License granted from Gomme Industries of the famous G Plan brand to manufacture furniture under the G Plan brand. Several hotel guest room contracts won.
  • The product range continued to expand introducing mattresses and Venetian blinds to the portfolio.
  • 70’s: another license agreement signed to manufacture Reprodux furniture.
  • 90’s: a dip in the manufacturing sector as the demand for locally manufactured furniture was under threat from imports. The company moved back to commercial and marine contracts and bespoke commissions.
  • The company then started importing some of the best brands of furniture from Europe.
  • 2008 saw the company move from its iconic showroom in Sliema to a new, larger state of the art showroom in Qormi.
  • The firm is today run by Sebastian de Giorgio, the grandson of Maurice de Giorgio.
  • The original Board of Directors comprised of initially the Galea brothers and Mr. Maurice de Giorgio. It saw several changes over the years.
  • Joinwell’s directors are backed up by a solid team of qualified and experienced designers, quality carpenters, logistic professionals and expert fitters, all contributing to the success of the Joinwell story.

2016 G-Plan Exhibition

An exhibition celebrating G-Plan in Malta was set up at the Blitz arts centre in Valletta in October 2016. The exhibition was set up by Blitz – who provided the venue in collaboration with Joinwell who supplied the pieces for the display from their collection. The exhibition was opened on Notte Bianca, with a number of exhibits and room setups on display. The fascination with G-Plan is that it was very much a defining period in Malta when it comes to furniture, and many homes today still have G Plan furniture  – still functional and in good condition 50 years on.
