Royal visit for Dedicated Micros

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, recently toured Dedicated Micros’ production facility in San Gwann where its industry-leading products such as the DV-IP and Digital Sprite 2 are manufactured.
The Duke’s visit to Dedicated Micros on November 25 - the second largest British-owned manufacturing company on the island – was timed to coincide with HM Queen Elizabeth’s attendance at the Commonwealth Head of Government Meeting (CHOGM).
During his tour of the factory on Malta’s San Gwann Industrial Estate, HRH Duke of Edinburgh was able to see the advanced Surface Mount Technology (SMT) section where automatic pick and place machines are installed. He was also briefed by Dedicated Micros (Malta) Directors Noel Micallef and Stephen Muscat on the processes involved in manufacture, stringent testing procedures and given a demonstration of typical products in action.
Noel Micallef, Director of Operations, Dedicated Micros (Malta) said: “We were delighted that HRH Duke of Edinburgh was able to tour our production facility and see at first hand what is involved in creating our state-of-the-art CCTV systems. The high profile visit also reflects our impressive export success which saw Dedicated Micros win the International Trade section of the Queen’s Award for Industry in 2003.”
Looking ahead, Dedicated Micros has ambitious expansion plans for its future in Malta and is currently in the process of developing a new site at Bulebel which will effectively double the company’s manufacturing capacity to meet market demands.
