About Us

hardware trading maltaHardware Trading Co had its foundation stone laid down in April 1987 by Mario Wismayer. The first company to supply Hardware Trading Co. was Robert Schroder GmbH & Co KG suppliers of screwdrivers and screwdriver bits, which were and still are top quality tools.

The mission of the Company was to act as an importer and distributor with the intent to deal in top quality tools and ironmongery products. Although there were many barriers to penetrate the local market, the Company’s vision was to experience growth and be recognised as a supplier of top quality products.

Within a relatively short time, more suppliers were contacted which had top brand names such as PG Professional, GAV, and Metrica of Italy, MOB of France, Mannesmann of Germany, Irwin of the USA,  AW Tools of UK and other brands. The range of products expanded so as to target both the building industry as well as the DIY markets. The Company’s work force also increased as well as the warehousing stores which have moved from the initial one store to include four all located close to the main offices in St. Julians.

The policy of the Company founder was and still is “customers’ satisfaction first and foremost” and since the sales force is the ‘ambassador’ of the Company, its duty is to provide honest and reliable information to customers at all times.

A vital target of the Company, which has been maintained all throughout these years, is that all orders have to be processed and delivered within 2 days. The reputation and distinction of forever striving to retain an equitable balance between product quality and cost, partnered with an excellent after sales service, keeps Hardware Trading Co. in the forefront of an ever more competitive world.
