Fino Commemorates 80 Years
"High levels in quality, work ethic and respect for workers are among the main pillars on which FINO has built and sustained its brand for the past 80 years. Today, we can safely say that if there is a brand that assimilates all these aspects together, that brand is FINO."
Joseph F.X. Zahra, Chairperson of C. Fino + Sons Limited said this during a commemorative event to celebrate the company’s 80th anniversary.
Established in 1935, C. Fino + Sons Limited is one of the oldest and most reputable furniture houses in Malta with a display floor of over 3000 square metres.
Mr. Zahra said that the company thrived thanks to its commitment towards quality, the loyalty of its workers and the sense of enterprise that the company’s founders and directors have always shown.
Over the years, FINO gained respect through its manufacturing arm and also through its representation of some of the finest furniture and home furnishing brands in Europe. Its business operations have expanded beyond the Maltese shores and today, the company is also active in Tunisia and Qatar.
During the event, held at Villa Arrigo, the company presented recognition awards to seven of its employees who have been employed by the company for over 40 years and thanked them for their loyalty. These were Production Manager Mr. Joseph Farrugia, Delivery Co-ordinator Mr. Michael Borg, Sales & Design Consultant Mr. Anthony Marcel Diacono, Maintenance Mr. Emanuel Zerafa, Skilled Labourers Mr Anthony Spiteri, Mr Joseph Sperandeo and Mr. Angelo Mangion. They would all be travelling to Treviso for a few days and would be visiting the Veneta Cucine Factory.
A commemorative gift to mark the occasion was also given to all the employees. The staff also presented the directors and their spouses with an appreciative gift.
The main highlight of the event was recollected in a video highlighting the major events of the company since its conception.
The senior directors of the company also received a portrait done by the renowned Maltese artist Andrew Micallef to mark this special occasion.
