BOND’S LIMITED is a family business founded in 1948 as an importing and distribution firm. In 1964, ‘Bond’s’ opened a Houseware and Giftware retail outlet in Sliema and the company’s business flourished during the sixties and seventies. New sources of supply were sought and the company moved positively in the direction of expansion and distribution of household products to other retailers. Hardware, Electrical appliances, White Goods and Home Improvement products, as well as auto parts, were added later.
In 1990 the company moved into new, centrally located, custom built premises in Attard, housing its offices, warehouses and a large modern showroom, where it is still based today.
In 1995, Bond’s expanded its operations into the furniture sector and has since become one of the leading importers and suppliers of furniture and mattresses in Malta.
With the imminent liberalization of the Malta market and EU accession, it was decided to concentrate on the company’s furniture business which offered the highest potential for future expansion. All efforts and resources were directed towards this sector and foreign sources of furniture supply were sought. The market was finally liberalized in October 2002 and one month later we were one of the first companies in Malta to display imported furniture in its showroom.
In 2004 Bond’s started importing the Colombini brand, then Italy’s largest and Europe’s third largest furniture manufacturer. We were actually amongst the first export customers for Colombini. At that time, Colombini were mainly producing for the Italian market, with less than 10% of their production being exported.
That was also the time that Colombini were drawing up plans for a major export offensive establishing mono brand shops and rebranded to Colombini Casa.
Due to the fresh design ideas, large choice, modularity and good quality, Colombini Casa furniture was an instant success in Malta. So much so that in 2014, and every year thereafter, Colombini Casa Malta, ergo Bond’s, was the top selling Colombini Casa shop worldwide.
As the company outgrew its premises, a major restructuring was undertaken in 2009. The existing two floors were practically rebuilt and another two floors were added. The newly refurbished premises with a display area of circa 1,500m2 spread over 4 floors, were inaugurated on 13th January, 2010 by H.G. Mons. Paul Cremona O.P., Archbishop of Malta.
Towards the end of 2014, an agreement was reached with Colombini to rebrand Bond’s to Colombini Casa, a franchise with over 60 shops worldwide, outside of Italy. The rebranding was finalised by March 2015, when Mr Emanuel Colombini, CEO of Colombini Casa came to Malta specifically to launch Colombini Casa by Bond’s. At the same time, Bond’s were also appointed sole distributors for the premium Febal Casa range, also by Colombini.
Bond’s is a dynamic company in continuous evolution. Success is based on being innovative and at the forefront of new technology and developments.
The philosophy of the company is to offer the market a superior quality product at a competitive price, together with an efficient service, where customer satisfaction is the main aim.
This philosophy has allowed the Company to grow considerably to become one of the most renowned kitchen and furniture shops, where one finds, amongst others, a vast range of kitchens, main and children’s bedrooms, living rooms, office furniture and mattresses to choose from, designed to satisfy a wide range of discerning tastes and budgets.
Together with our partners Colombini Casa, we offer the Total Living concept which has developed year by year and collection after collection with the desire to offer not only a non-standard concept, but also one that is highly customisable.
Most importantly, one will find helpful, experienced staff, who are genuinely interested in customers’ needs, when helping to design home furniture. Our flexibility ensures that we are able to meet our client’s needs, – a distinct advantage over our competitors.
Giving a personalised service and ensuring maximum customer satisfaction is the main priority at Bond’s. No wonder we are running in front as market leaders.
