Experience & Reliability
It all started in a small garage in Brared Street
Birkirkara as a one-man job, when founder John
Busuttil started to make signs and a lot of other
items using acrylic plastic. This relatively new
material has just been commercially introduced
in Malta, but Mr. Busuttil had been using this material since he was a kid collecting it from crashed enemy aircraft during the Second World War.
ABOUT US ........
Our founder - JOHN BUSUTTIL (1927-2005) - one of the pioneers of the Maltese Signage Industry; the man who had the courage and vision to establish what we are today, more than sixty years ago.
As work increased, the need was felt to find larger premises in order to meet the large demands of the clients. Thus in 1959 the factory was moved a couple of streets away to a new building in Bwieraq Street, the same building we are still using today. This enabled our company to increase its work output by increasing its workforce and installing a number of new machinery, almost all of them designed and manufactured by John Busuttil himself. These changes placed Skyline Plastic Works on the forefront of the signage industry in Malta with innovative items such as 'blown' or 'box-type' letters and signs.
As the leading signage company on the island, our participation in the annual Malta Trade Fair was a must. We participated for a number of years between 1963 and 1969, and always impressed both with the creativity of our products and the way we presented our stands.
The innovative design of our stands proved to be very popular and the visitors amounted to hundreds every day. Among these visitors there were also a number of distinguished personalities of the time, amongst them the Governor-General Sir Maurice Dorman and the Archbishop Mons. Sir Michael Gonzi.
Besides the daily work, Skyline Plastic Works participated also in a number of other social activities that were at that time in their infancy, amongst them the Miss Industry International. Our company won the first two editions of this prestigious award - in 1968 through Miss Skyline Grace Mizzi and in 1969 through Miss Skyline Mary Anne Best. Both winners represented Malta in the Miss Cinema Europe competitions of the following year.
Skyline Plastic Works continued with its manufacturing and production programme throughout the 1970's and 1980's under the leadership of John Busuttil, helped with his daughter Grace.
Today the company is run by John's son, Joseph, who continued on his father's footsteps by keeping his factory updated with the latest machinery on the market. Thus today, Skyline Plastic Works not only continued with the production of items it had been manufacturing since the 1960's, but can offer its clients new possibilities through the use of the latest computer technology.
