COMPANY HISTORY:

The History of Gollcher Group of Companies goes back to 1854 when Olof Fredrik Gollcher, a Swede who settled in Malta a few years earlier, founded O.F. Gollcher & Sons. He was soon involved with the local shipping industry and established himself as a leading figure, operating his own ships from Malta to North African, Sicilian, and Adriatic ports. He pioneered the first services to the sister Island of Gozo and also organised ferry services within the Maltese Harbours. In 1858 Olof Fredrik was appointed Honorary Vice Consul for the Netherlands and in 1874 Honorary Consul for Sweden. In 1899 his son William was later appointed Honorary Consul for Denmark. For over a century the various generations of Gollchers have been highly honoured with these Consular appointments. The firm proudly records well over 100 years of service as Lloyd’s Agent in Malta.
