About Us

The Bonnici family has established its roots in the village of Burmarrad, Malta. In 1935, Emanuel Bonnici opened a carpentry shop that manufactured wooden horse/cow-drawn ploughs. As time went by, he converted his carpentry shop into an ironmongery and installed a petrol station, both of which are still operating to this day. After WWII, Francis Bonnici joined the business with Emanuel, and together they started the importation of farm machinery in 1948. Initially, they started importing Howard rotary cultivators, Stationary engines, portable pumping sets, Meadows industrial engines and generators from England, and Pope sprinklers from Australia and Oliver Crawler tractors from America. In 1954, Emanuel and Francis imported the first AGRIA diesel, rotary cultivator from the Netherlands. Due to previous WWII export restrictions, this Agria cultivator was the first to ever been imported to Malta. As business improved, Bonnici Stores Ltd was registered in November of 1971 as a Limited Liability Company. 


Today, Bonnici Stores LTD. Is owned by Vincent, Joseph, David and Godfrey Bonnici and it has since grown into four establishments including the original ironmongery, offices, workshop and showroom. After all these years Bonnici Stores Ltd is still the leading importer and distributor of various renowned agriculture brands and has since expanded its activities to the importation of construction, industrial and marine machinery.
