MCE Ltd are wholesalers and retailers of industrial, electrical, plumbing and precision engineering tools.
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, the company was given a new direction by the introduction of the Tooling Division, handling engineering cutting tools and measuring instruments.
This new activity involved for the first time the stocking and distribution of goods. By 1984, MCE had already established itself as a leader 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.
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, which 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. During this time, the company also 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.
