Heracles Packaging Co. SA is founded in 1979 by Heracles Cement Company SA and its subsidiary Lava SA, with the scope of the production and trading of molded fiber packaging products.
In cooperation with Keyes Fibre USA, a pioneer company in the technology of molded paper pulp products, the company is set up in a company property of 130 acres.
With a daily output of more than 380.000 egg trays and fruit trays, the installed production line is one of the biggest in Europe.
The Company is bought out by a business group, under the consultancy and leadership of George Papacharalampous, CEO of the company since 1995.
The Company becomes sole representative of Brodrene Hartmann for the Greek and Cypriot market for its egg packaging solutions from molded fibre.
Capacity is increased with the installation of a new rotary production line for smaller outputs and an online after-press for products requiring a smoother finishing surface.
With more and more companies requiring products that respect the ecological habitat, the manufacture of customer-specific solutions from recovered paper begins.
Α new production line that allows the manufacture of products with draft angles as steep as 3° and heights up to 15cm is installed, ideal for heavy duty industrial packaging solutions.
As the focus on custom-made products becomes greater, the in-house tooling center is further enhanced with a new CNC in order to speed up the mold creation process and the repair of existing tools.
One of the existing production lines gets remodeled by local craftsmen in cooperation with our in-house designers, so that its capacity, as well as its production capabilities, increase.
