Initially the system of business was that of importation for the account of major ironmongery shops and very little stock was in fact held by the Company. However with time this system changed and the Company evolved into an importation and distribution company with its own warehouses, sales and delivery men. Eventually it opened its own retail outlet selling automotive refinishing paints, garage equipment, power tools, welding equipment and wood stains and colours.
Over time the Company became more focused on particular areas of products and whilst general hardware items were still an important element of the range of products the Company became a specialist as a supplier to the auto repair trade and wood refinishing.
Today the Company operates from a showroom in Msida Valley Road, B'Kara, which serves as its office, distribution centre and retail outlet whilst its warehousing is located in Mriehel. Its client base is principally the wholesale and retail trade.
Its team of dedicated salesmen, each with his own speciality area, supported by the delivery men and the rest of the staff in the fixed locations, offer a wide range of first class products some of which Galdes & Mamo Ltd. has been doing business with for many years. Its clients appreciate the sincere work ethic that the Company adopts and here again some relationship go back generations.
The Company strives to deliver quality products at the most competitive prices in the most efficient manner to be able to satisfy its clients and to ensure that they in turn offer the best benefit to their clients.
Galdes & Mamo Ltd. was established in 1947 as an importer of top quality decorative paints and ironmongery items. The source of supply was then primarily the UK but gradually the spectrum of sources expanded to worldwide.
