These new investments should result in a higher level of employment within the Magro Brothers Group of Companies in our island of Gozo.
Some of the companies within the Magro Brothers Group of Companies have benefitted both from the COVID-19 wage supplement and from the Covid-19 MDB loan assist scheme. Through these aids the Group has managed to avoid any redundancies in such challenging times.
