The firm Vee Gee Bee was founded in 1920 and turned into a Limited Liability Company in 1980. It now trades under the name of Vee Gee Bee Wholesale Ltd. and has two distinct business areas.
The first division focuses on the Paint \ DIY Market Sector with a particular emphasis on domestic and industrial paints and adhesives. We supply leading paint brands as well as offer on demand Paint Tinting services where we can match any colour requested. We distribute to over 300 hardware retail shops in Malta & Gozo and have substantial warehousing facilities together with an organised distribution network.
The second division specialises in the retail sale and distribution of Artist Materials. We originally started with an Art shop in Valletta which also served as an art gallery for local artists. Eventually a larger and more modern flagship store, dedicated solely to art materials, was opened in San Gwann. Here one can find a vast range of art materials ranging from traditional paint tubes to the newer markers and pens. The shop also has a fully equipped art studio used for art lessons or workshops.
We also operate our own online shop where customers can place their orders online and we will deliver directly to their door. Our mission is to enrich people’s lives by bringing visual delight and lasting care to their surroundings. We aim to have the brands, products and services that will be the first choice for people who want the best for their homes and the right tools to bring out their creativity and artistic inspiration.
