A Famalco Group delegation consisting of group Co-Founders and Directors Hermann and Sandro Mallia, as well as Mobility Business Unit Leader Joanne Bartolo Chircop, continued on the group’s new SsangYong venture by journeying to the beautiful country of Ireland in order to progress work on the ongoing SsangYong Automotive Ireland Ltd., (SAIL) project.

Backed up with over thirty-five years of experience in start-ups, businesses and brand management, Famalco Group set up the SAIL project, as they felt that the Irish market offers great potential and would be perfectly fitted and primed for another overseas expansion project by the group.

Whilst having already previously visited the country on various occasions, laying foundations with a number of important individuals in the mobility sector, the delegation felt that the time was right to re-embark on another trip in order to meet, strategize and communicate with current and future authorized sales dealers.

On the roads in Ireland, the Famalco delegation, guided by the knowledgeable hands of John McKenna, appointed Country Manager, had five intense days of travelling around 32 counties, meeting with a series of interested parties and future associates.

As SsangYong has increasingly built a name for itself in Europe, keen interested parties eagerly quizzed the delegation on the Korean manufactures newer models such as the Musso Grand, and the future Korando C300 due to release in Malta and Ireland this September.

Famalco Group are firm in their resolve to continue supporting the Ireland SAIL expansion, seeing the project as a long term investment with fantastic potential. With solid intentions to continue on the operations in Ireland a stable 3 year plan has been established, ensuring stable efforts continue and frequent goals are met.
