Blog: Intertek turns 22

Intertek Laboratories Limited is celebrating its 22nd year of operation.  

Back in the infancy days of the internet, Etienne Farrugia and Patrick Genovese recognised the importance of this new technology and invested in a small premises opposite the Junior College in which they setup an internet cafe.  

“Back in those days households with internet access were not common.  Setting up near Junior College made sense since students were the ones who really wanted and needed access to this new technology” said Etienne Farrugia, Managing Director. “However within a short period of time we started noticing that whereas there were a number of IT companies in Malta, very few could offer the boutique service we had the potential to offer.”

“Being a small operation and with our different areas of expertise we could offer both hardware and software solutions that were tailored for our customers needs”, continued Patrick Genovese, Technical Director.  “We have grown considerably since then but our belief that we need to be client centred has not changed. We are proud to have clients that have been working with us for most of our existence. We continue to give our clients solutions they need and that that will offer the best return on investment in the long term.  In short we are not after a quick buck, but building long term relationships where we become their Technology Partners, not just their tech company.”
