Durex Condoms Header Malta NMArrigo


durex_logo Durex’s (by Reckitt Benckiser ) origins go back to 1915 when the London Rubber Company was formed to sell imported condoms and barber supplies. Condom production eventually started in the UK, and the brand name Durex was born in 1929, standing for “DUrability, REliability and EXcellence”.

NMArrigo has a long history being the sole agents of the Durex brand in Malta and Gozo.Reckitt_Benckiser_logo
It all started with Rosina Depares Ltd. at the shop Old Bakery Street (Strada Forni) Valletta (Malta).
At the time Old Bakery street was quite a trove of treasures for ladies and indeed Rosina Depares opened a hat store for women (millinery).

The hat store changed into a book store with offices above in the early 1950’s. Old Bakery Street and the surroundings in Valletta was, and still is, quite popular for book stores.
Wright’s Coal tar soap and Eucryl toothpaste were amongst the products that Charles Depares imported.
Along came the 60’s and some form of liberalisation of contraception. Rosina Depares Ltd. was pioneering in introducing the LRC (London Rubber Company) DUREX brand in Malta and subsequently Gozo.


Still largely de-facto illegal in Malta, overwhelmingly, pharmacies across the Maltese islands refused to stock condoms (and most forms of contraception) on moral grounds.
Pharmacies were virtually the only place that they could be bought, apart from the agents themselves.
Condoms were sold as “rubber thimbles for men” and were kept firmly out of sight (sort of “under the counter” versus “over the counter“, pun intended 🙂 ).
Most men preferred not to ask the female pharmacy assistants and most female pharmacists refused to deal in condoms.


Charles Depares and Noel Arrigo formed a 50-50 partnership in the 1980s.
NAPA Ltd. was a spin off from Collis Williams Pharmacy (head-officed, then and now in Republic Street, Valletta), also an importer or similar pharmaceuticals.
In the 1990s Rosina Depares became a fully owned subsidy of NAPA Ltd. and continued to trade with LIG (the London International Group, as LRC now became to be know) well through its merger to form SSL (Seton Scholl Ltd.) and eventual recent takeover by Reckitt Benckiser.


Nowadays condoms can be found in all pharmacies, supermarkets and also NMArrigo’s dominant position in the vending sector, in a number of bars, pubs and nightclubs across Malta & Gozo.
NAPA Ltd, now renamed to NMArrigo Ltd., continued to operate in the same premises in Valletta (having moved from Valley Road, Birkirkara, Malta a few years before) right until the recent move towards the combined store and offices in Mriehel-B’kara (Malta).
RB (as Reckitt Benckiser is colloquially known) is now a huge conglomerate of consumer goods, having amongst its range, Scholl foot products, Cilit Bang, Clearasil, Airwick and Vanish.

Away from the Maltese shores, Durex, remained at the forefront of advancements in condom manufacturing, by introducing electronic testing in 1953.
Fast forward to 1969 and it introduced the world’s first anatomically shaped condom, while in 1974 it produced the first to be spermicidally lubricated.
In the 1990s Durex is the first condom brand to adopt a Global “seal of quality” as standard.
1997 : Durex introduces non-latex condoms: The Avanti Range, which uses a new non-allergenic material – synthetic polyurethane developed by Durex that is softer and more elastic than natural rubber latex. Durex remains the world’s biggest selling condom brand.

Durex has over 75 years experience of manufacturing condoms. So it’s safe to say that every single one is the product of a process that’s tried and tested.
