our inside story

Cortex Ltd was established in 1996 by Robert Micallef and Ray Micallef, his cousin and business partner. It was first established with just eleven products, when Robert came across a British company that wished to export hair care products from the UK to Malta.

Business flourished slowly but surely due to the limited number of products supplied, which were nonetheless of very good quality. After searching various product lines for quality, in late 2004, the company adopted a new product line. Since then, the company has expanded its product offering to various reputable and reliable hair care brands.

After ten years of business partnership, Ray and Robert separated ways and Cortex Ltd was bought out by Robert. With the help of the company’s loyal employees, sales increased and the business continued to flourish. Today, Cortex Ltd is Malta’s leading supplier and distributor of the major brands and top products in the hairdressing sector.

our extended team

Robert believes that the success of Cortex Ltd is largely due to its collaboration with other business professionals.

“I believe in working only with reliable people who can deliver whatever is required with minimum supervision and on time. I believe in a “’fire and forget” service’ which, in other words, means that once we make our request or pass on a problem, we can forget about it knowing that the request will be fulfilled come rain or shine, without excuses. We therefore like to recommend the people or companies below as they have never let us down, not even once!”

Franco Azzopardi is our man when it comes to business strategy. He specialises in helping people become smarter in business through leveraging the best value from the available resources, with a focus on strategy, finance and performance. He has built a unique niche for himself by adopting tactics and strategies from Japanese martial arts and applying them to business strategy. It is always very interesting to talk with him.”
