It all started when…
Set up within the Ricasoli Industrial Estate in 1979 as Pearl Paints Limited, the company changed name to Macpherson Mediterranean Limited in the 1980s when bought by Macpherson UK Limited. The Company was acquired by Calco Limited in 1993 from its then owners, Akzo B.V., the Dutch chemicals giant. Calco Limited is a joint venture company belonging to the Alf. Mizzi Group and First Gemini plc.
The local operation manufactures products for the retail, D.I.Y., industrial and trade markets, producing under licence a full range of high quality decorative coatings for Crown Paints UK Limited (Est. 1777).
The brands include the reliable and locally popular range of Macpherson® paints and ancillary products, Crown®, premium interior wall paints and Sandtex®, durable exterior masonry coatings.
Mac Med Limited was established in 2005 subsequent to Malta having joined the European Union. The newco focused upon the distribution of locally manufactured products whilst commencing importation of ancillary paints and sundries from leading European manufacturers.
Such activities grew rapidly to the extent that operations were relocated to within one of Malta’s top Industrial Estates, that of Bulebel, in Zejtun, in 2007, operating from a 4000m² manufacturing and warehousing facility.
