to the formation of Roberts Press. Under the management of Alfred and Paul
Beck, in 1989 the business was transferred from a small establishment in
Gzira to a larger and purposely built modern graphic arts house in San
Gwann. To reflect the changing trends within the industry, the business
was renamed Beck Graphics Limited.
The company was renowned for its quality and security printing and was
in the forefront to introduce new printing technology to the islands. At
the same time, Beck Graphics started to diversify its core activities by
seeking to acquire the representation of some of the world's finest suppliers

The directors decided to cease the printing operations in May 2002 with
a determined intention to concentrate specifically on providing an efficient
and dedicated service to the renowned companies they represent. The company
is currently managed by William Beck, a grandson of the founder and a graduate
in printing technology.
