With the building industry going through some radical changes in Malta and Gozo in the 1960s, Joseph Attard, a builder at the time, saw a new opportunity for an innovative product – pre-cast concrete blocks also known as ‘bricks’.
Having bought a plot of land on the outskirts of Xewkija, he developed it into a brick factory that started to manufacture and supply pre-cast concrete blocks in 1972. Together with his sons, Carmel and Raymond, Joseph formed JCR Ltd in 1982 which was the only company in Gozo to use a mechanised system to mass produce concrete blocks at the time.
JCR Ltd started off as a general concrete supplier providing concrete products for roofing, concrete planks and the production of small quantities of pre-cast concrete blocks which became widespread in the local building industry. Eventually the company diversified and started importing admixtures and chemical materials from across Europe, especially for the use of concrete structures.
Business took off rapidly and there was an increase in demand for JCR’s products. The company expanded further, importing waterproofing and materials for general restoration. A branch in Gzira, Malta was opened in 1985. Continuous growth in the import sector led to the opening of bigger premises in 1991. A bigger plot was purchased in Mriehel in 1996 with the final trans-location happening in 1998. JCR Ltd acting on the demands of various Maltese builders and companies started importing a range of different materials and acting as wholesaler of chemical products brought over from Sicily. JCR became a leader in the construction industry and the de facto, “Go to” experts for solutions for the construction industry.
In 2013 JCR was further sub-divided into two completely separate organizations – JCR Imports, headed by Carmel Attard; and RA and sons, headed by Raymond Attard. RA and Sons developed a brand new, state of the art, production facility for the RAproducts line whilst continuing to import high quality building materials in Malta and Gozo.
RA and Sons operates from the production facility in Xewkija, Gozo whilst also maintaining two large warehouse, located at units 23 and 24, Hardrocks Industrial Estate, Burmarrad, Malta.
We constantly keep up to date with the latest advances in technology and our factory in Gozo is equipped with new state of the art machinery to keep up with the increasing demand. Or R & D Laboratory ensures our products are up to stringent European standards whilst producing materials using locally sourced primary resources – this gives us the ability to keep prices competitive whilst helping the local economy by utilizing local suppliers.
