Pack to School is an operation run by AFE Trading Ltd, a family-run business supported by a committed team of employees. We promote and encourage creativity & expression. The gift of writing is one of the most beautiful forms of expression and this is indeed our area of expertise.
The business, which was set up in 1996, started as a humble import & distribution operation having sole representation in Malta of the international brand Faber-Castell, specialising in stationery products, art and technical drawing materials.
We also have local representation of other brands including Creativity for Kids, Eberhard Faber as well as Folia, all of these brands complement our Faber-Castell range. We also boast representation of the brand Graf von Faber-Castell, a premium line of fine-writing instruments.
Over the years, our business operations grew consistently as a result of the solid business relationships and networks which we managed to establish with our esteemed clientele.
In 2009, we expanded our operations by opening a state-of-the-art retail concept store, by the name of Faber-Castell | the concept, to showcase the extensive range of Faber-Castell products together with other complimentary items.
Throughout the years, since the opening of our retail outlet, we had the opportunity to have various encounters with schools and parents alike, thus gaining first-hand experience with the ‘head-aches’ of the back-to-school season. This reality was the major driver that prompted us to embark on the Pack to School online venture – a convenient one-stop shop that captures all and only your back-to-school needs – with the intention of easing the road towards preparing for the new scholastic year.
Whatever we do is driven by our passion for quality products and customer focus. We always aim to provide great value and an impeccable personal service … always delivered with a smile.
Today, AFE retains its focus on the values that have driven its success throughout the years, namely reliability and personal service, thereby complementing the Faber-Castell philosophy of ‘doing ordinary things, extraordinarily well’ – today, tomorrow and always!
