A major period of growth for Gala occurred in the 1950’s, when Frank Borda took the realms from his father, diversifying into Gala Domestic Appliance. Supplying refrigerators, Gala were at the forefront of Malta’s boom in domestic appliance. Moreover, Gala were equally successful in running refrigerator exports to Libya and Egypt.
The business is now managed by Paul Borda, the son of Frank Borda. Paul Borda undertook a large investment, in excess of $40M, to purchase and develop a state of the art headquarter premses in Ta’ Xbiex. Today, the premises hosts Gala’s head offices, along with Gala Supermarket Facilities, Gala Domestic Appliances, and more.
