Baxter continues to expand and will be employing another 50 people in the near future. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, the company in the Marsa Industrial Area has managed to increase its operations by 20 per cent and with the help of Malta Enterprise is in the process of expanding by a further 10 per cent.
Despite the challenges of the pandemic, Baxter has expanded its operations by 30 percent. Today it employs around 600 people in manufacturing, research and development, and in the coming months – thanks to the way it has grown over the past year – it will be increasing its staff by another 50.
The company produces medical products that are used in clinics and hospitals around the world and has been in Malta for 30 years. The investment made will continue in the coming months.
“The investment consists of new machinery as well as infrastructure allowing for the production of medical products while also investing in the development of workers that we will be engaging with so that they also learn the processes that will go into producing the products we are going to be making ”.
Baxter benefited from aid provided by Malta Enterprise to the manufacturing company.
“In the field of manufacturing, Malta Enterprise assists companies to grow, both in training grants for their workers to increase the skills of their workers but also when it comes to expansion. Expansion in terms of both the purchase of machinery and of the building per se “, said Mr Farrugia.
During a visit to the Baxter factory, the Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Sustainable Development, Miriam Dalli described the company as one of excellence, one that showed reciprocal confidence between Malta and the company. She acknowledged that during a year of challenges, the company managed to complete a 20 per cent expansion of its production investment, and immediately continued discussions with Malta Enterprise for another investment that will increase the company’s operations by another 10 percent.
She said that this is a typical example of companies here in Malta that are not only resilient, but which look at long-term investment. Minister Dalli added that the Government and Malta Enterprise would continue to offer the necessary assistance to offer more quality work and careers.
