Our business activities started in 1932 with trading and production of asphalt based water proofing materials under the Hermes brand name. Our first production of decorative paint started in 1960 under the Vitex brand name that grew to be a leading paint manufacturer in Greece and South East Europe. In 1972 we invested in a polymers production unit producing vinyl and acrylic resins for paints, a business that we operated for 32 years. In 1988 we acquired Syntex, a manufacturer of marine, industrial and specialty coatings. In 2007 we inaugurated our high tech paint production facility in Aspropyrgos.
Our 80 years in the construction chemicals and coatings business reflects our principles on quality, trustworthiness and accountability. For more information on our corporate status please check www.yannidis.com
