Mr. Michel Demajo set up the M. Demajo firm, a company engaged in commission trading. The company started operating with the importation of foodstuffs, toys, wines, spirits, and other major brands from the UK, Italy, France, and Germany.
The start of the world war caused a stunt in the growth of the company. Mr. Michel Demajo, with his passion for success, decided to travel around North Africa in order to find business. The Demajo family were already running an operation which started in 1895, supplying spirits to the British forces in Egypt. One of the company’s major brands was Hennessy, along with Croft Port.
A year after the Great War ended, the company had started its phenomenal growth. This was due to a deal which Michel Demajo had curated with a sheik in Egypt, where they commuted business between the latter country and Malta.
One year after the end of WWII, the M. Demajo Group were appointed a business relationship with Thomas De La Rue to consult their security printing services within Maltese territory. De La Rue were the main printer for stamps, passports, bank notes, polycarbonate data pages, government letter heads, and playing cards. The M. Demajo Group later became De La Rue agents.
