Why us?


Over 160 years of experience

The History of Gollcher Group goes back to 1854 when Olof Fredrik Gollcher, a Swede who settled in Malta a few years earlier, founded O.F. Gollcher & Sons. He was soon involved with the local shipping industry and established himself as a leading figure, operating his own ships from Malta to North African, Sicilian, Adriatic ports and also acting as ship agent for leading shipping lines calling at our ports. He pioneered the first services to the sister Island of Gozo and also organised ferry services within the Maltese Harbours.  Generations later, Gollcher group continues to be a leader in Malta’s Maritime industry with the company still being proudly family owned and invested in.


A wealth of experience has been gained over the years, and this enables us to meet and exceed our customer’s expectations. Our success is also based upon a policy of sustained investment in human resources, training methods and information technology.
