Company Profile

The firm Vee Gee Bee was founded in 1920 and turned into a Limited Liability Company in 1980. Now trading under Vee Gee Bee Wholesale Ltd., the company has two distinct business areas. The first focuses mainly in the Hardware Market Sector with a particular emphasis on paints and adhesives. The second specialises in the importation of Artist Materials and related activites. 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.

The company distributes to over 300 hardware retail outlets in Malta and Gozo. In order to satisfy the demands of the local market we have substantial warehousing facilities for stocking of all our products as well as an organised distribution network which ensures that our outlets are visited at least twice a week. Our set-up provides the retailers with the service they are accustomed to including credit facilities, special offers, advertising, technical information and special attention to meet one-off or exceptional demands such as instant delivery and a fully computerized paint colour matching facility.

The company has been trading in artist materials since its early days. Originally starting 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 opend in San Gwann. This shop sells a vast range of art materials ranging from traditional pigments and tubes to the newer art markers. This shop also has a fully equipped art studio used for art lessons, life sessions or workshops. In 2016 VGB also launched the first Maltese online shop for artist material. Customers can browse the online shop in the comfort of their own home and we even offer delivery direct to their door.
