In the evening hours of Tuesday May 26th, 2009, a blaze began in our production facilities at Malakasa.

Despite the immediate intervention of the fire brigade, the fire destroyed the factory and damaged the offices. Our people are safe. The forest adjacent to our factory has remained intact.

We are doing our utmost to deal with all the issues in a timely and efficient manner.

Our offices are already operational and our production will be relocated temporarily to a 3000 sq.m. building in Kifisia, Athens. Our manufacturing operations will restart by Friday June 5th and are expected to reach more than 80% of our original production capacity by Friday, June 19th, 2009. In the meantime, our operations will be supported by our subsidiary units in Romania and Bulgaria.

We would like to thank all our customers and partners for their understanding and assistance.
