Our company was founded in 1950 by Pantelis Pashalidis, a born-to-be businessman active in many trades. At this time, Pantelis Pashalidis has also successfully traded in a wide range of textile commodities, including carpets, blankets and the production of coats for the army.
In the 60s, due to the success and the constantly growing diversification of our product groups, the family opened four commercial stores selling the products it produced in its small in-house workshop at the time and many other branded textiles. We were the very first to export Flokati to the world and literally establish it as an export product of preferential Greek origin.
In the 70s, Pantelis Pashalidis & Sons S.A. reached a milestone when it pioneered the mass production of Flokati using traditional methods and customized proprietary technology. As a textile pioneer, Pantelis Pashalidis & Sons S.A. helped change this Flokati industry, rapidly growing from one of the first Flokati enterprises in Greece to become the world leader in the field. The company reallocated to new premises, purchasing the Vermion factory, a world-known cotton spinning mill at the time.
In the 80s, Pantelis Pashalidis & Sons S.A. realized the milestone of being listed several times as one of the largest Greek exporters in all industrial sectors combined. We became a fully vertically integrated textile industry.
In the 90s, our new factory with modern equipment, where we are currently situated, became a reality. The unmatched level of craftmanship, production capacity and flexibility of our company have allowed us to become global leaders by setting industry benchmarks for both quality and efficiency.
