Progress Press

Set up in 1922, Progress Press is by far one of Malta's oldest newspaper publishing houses and commercial printers.

In the same year that Lord Strickland set up his own printing press, in Strada Reale (now Republic street), Valletta, a new title was born, the Times of Malta, first as English language supplement to Il Progress, and later as weekly and daily newspapers. In no time, both the Times of Malta and The Sunday Times of Malta established themselves as market leaders, earning the distinction of national institutions. They still are today as they continue to serve the community in the same spirit as that shown by Lord Strickland's daughter, Mabel Strickland, for so many years in times of war and peace.

Progress Press, which had strong connections with the Hultons who for years were the largest newspaper empire outside Fleet Street and publishers of Picture Post (the magazine that pioneered photojournalism in Britain), flourished when in 1931 it moved to a building in St Paul Street, Valletta, known in the time of the Knights of Malta as the Palace of the Fountains. The building, renamed Strickland House, is across the road from the imposing Auberge de Castille, the Prime Minister's office.

Progress Press is part of Allied Group, which includes Allied Newspapers Limited (set up in 1939) and Mediamaker, a young company specialising in the publication of quality magazines. Progress Press is today engaged in the printing of an ever expanding range of products, from newspapers and magazines to books (hardback and paperback), manuals, catalogues /marketing pieces, company profiles, brochures, direct mail applications and other traditional printing jobs, such as customised stationery.

Due to developments in technology as well as an ever-expanding business, in 2011 Progress Press moved from its historic premises in Valletta to a new state-of-the-art purposely built premises in Mriehel, Malta.
