2. The company is developing its dynamics both in the production of blocks and in the processing and trade of semi-finished and finished marbles. Its aim is to increase the blocks from the new quarries, in addition to the existing ones, as well as increase of the production process in cutting and processing. Thus, in 2018 IKTINOS HELLAS SA proceeded to the following actions:
In order to increase the production of the blocks and in addition to the existed quarries (total 7) in Eastern Macedonia, the company added a new one, PYRGON quarry, which has been renounced recently and which has been in operation since the beginning of August.
At the beginning of 2019 another quarry will operate in the Peloponnese region, with a delay of several years due to bureaucracy. It should be noted that many of the types of marble are unique in color and quality and famous in foreign markets.
The company's special research department is investigating other marble deposits to evaluate and integrate them into the production process.
Regarding of cutting and processing, the company also acquired a new factory in the industrial area of Drama, 35,000 m2 and 7,000 m2 of building. The company will proceed to the 3.000m2 building extension and to the installation of new modern automated mechanical equipment.
This plant is already operating with old facilities and its full operation will begin in the first quarter of 2019. The delay is due to the bureaucratic licensing process, which has been completed recently.
The results of the first half of the year 2018 have been published online on 12-9-2018, showing a 47.85% increase in six-month turnover from € 19.28 million to € 28.51 million.
The delayed integration of the new plant into the production process by approximately 6-9 months due to the bureaucratic delays as mentioned above, does not contribute to the projected increase in turnover from the factory by € 5 million, so the total projected turnover in 2018 will reach approximately € 60 million, an annual increase of 30% with relevant profitability.
