MCE - About Us

About Us


The Beginning

MCE Limited saw its inception in 1976 in a one room office in Birkirkara, where its line of activity was limited to selling plastic raw material and participating in government tenders. In 1982 the company moved to new premises in Valletta. Here a new direction to the company was given by the introduction of the Tooling Division, handling engineering cutting tools and measuring instruments..

Company Profile

This new activity involved for the first time the stocking and distribution of goods. By 1984, MCE had already established itself as leaders in this new activity. At the same time the company continued to diversify itself and in the same year MCE introduced another line of activity. The Electrical Division started to stock and distribute electrical installation and lighting materials, including switchgear, cables and luminaires.

MCE House

By this time, the demand for more storage and office space was really felt and by 1990 the Company had completed the construction of its new complex: MCE House. MCE House was officially opened in June 1991 by H.E. Dr. Censu Tabone, then President of Malta

At the turn of the century the company started to take on turnkey projects and successfully completed many floodlighting projects, earthing and lightning protection projects, HV and LV installations and installed and commissioned very large generator sets.

About us

By 2002 the company took another direction and took on the stocking and distribution of commodity polyethylene plastics in high, low and linear low density for both blow moulding and film applications. This was done after MCE had already proven itself to be a reliable just-in-time supplier for many clients for engineering plastics.

At this time also the company embarked to enhance the electrical division with the distribution of plumbing materials and this division was re-named the Electrical and Plumbing Division.

For the third time in its history, the company realized that it had outgrown its warehousing facilities, and in 2003 initiated the construction of the second phase of MCE House in Qormi. This phase included new parking facilities, additional storage area, larger offices and facilities for a new shop for the Engineering and Tooling Division.
