Home / Company Overview / Milestones
1938: Establishment of Helliniki Halyvourgia, the first steel plant in Greece and one of the largest industrial companies in the country. The historic Roupel fortress is built in Macedonia using Helleniki Halyvourgia’s reinforcing bars. In 1951, the company’s production unit is relocated from its first plant in Athens (Piraeus str.), to new private industrial premises in Aspropyrgos, Attica.
1963: Establishment of Halyvourgia Volos. In 1974, the name is changed into Halyvourgia Thessalias and the meltshop in Velestino sets off. On a steadily rising trend and constantly achieving new standards of excellence, the company’s products are selected for large infrastructure projects. The largest part of the Rio-Antirio Bridge was constructed with Halyvourgia Thessalias’ reinforcing bars.
2006: The two historic companies join their forces and “sign” with a new corporate name: Hellenic Halyvourgia. Bringing together a tradition of innovation encompassing all eras, a new leading force is emerging with the necessary know-how and experience to rise up to the future challenges.
