The building services industry leader embraces a new era as the next generation of the family business takes the lead
Renowned building services contractor Panta has appointed two new directors, Katrina Attard and Kris Micallef.
As third-generation members of the family united behind the long-standing industry leader, Ms Attard and Mr Micallef now utilise their years of practical experience at different levels of operations within the Group as well as university educations that have allowed them to merge their academic background and experience to continue building on the work of previous generations to shape the future of Panta.
“We both feel proud to have accomplished so much thus far, continually building the brand name that our grandfather and Founder of the Group, Mr Barth Attard, started back in 1960,” says Mr Micallef, who is now Chief Commercial Officer for the contracting arm of Panta.
The new appointments come as the generations-strong family business evolves from Panta Lesco into the Panta Group. For more than 50 years, Panta has brought high-quality products and innovative technologies applied on both large-scale projects and smaller-scale residential use.
“Panta has shaped the building services industry in Malta. Not only was it the first major company of its kind to be successful in the industry both in Malta and overseas, but it also pioneered a culture of uncompromised dedication to technical honesty, quality service and expertise,” says Ms Attard, Panta’s new CEO. “This is why our clients keep returning to Panta – and it is what we have kept as our core economic, social and environmental values as we led Panta through a restructuring process that has also served as a growth strategy and brand refresh.’’
“The new Panta is more dynamic, fresh and driven to continually push quality building engineering solutions, whether for your large commercial development or your humble home. We both look forward to spearheading the many exciting projects that are on the horizon for Panta,” Ms Attard adds.
