It always catches the market changes, preserving the legacy and traditions of a family business. It targets to participate in the market of Europe and the Mediterranean countries. It supports and invests in its workforce and provides to the constructors energy-efficient and cost-effective solutions.

It was founded in 1979, with the headquarters in Larisa, as a healthy company using equity, having only one vision, to develop the economy of the region of Thessaly and Greece. It soon became a leader in manufacturing products for the construction sector by providing technologically innovative and energy efficient and cost-effective solutions.

Today it has:

Years of economic viability
Countries with strong presence

In 1985, Metallemporiki expanded with a new wing and begins production of the sinusoidal pre-coated sheet metal profile using machines manufactured by leading European companies and cutting-edge technology. Eventually the sinusoidal profile proved to be the most successful commercially product and is still produced today.

In the early 1990s, it built a new wing and expanded in the production of trapezoidal profiles and tile effect profiles. First in Greece, introduced the Roman and Dutch tile profiles of pre-painted steel sheets. Top steel companies name the typical red tile color code as Greek Red.

Ιn the late 1990s, it expanded with a new wing with more profile production lines and following market trends, laid the foundations for the first polyurethane panel production unit. In 1998, the production of polyurethane panels is a fact. The trend of insulated panel production comes to meet the market needs for energy efficient and cost-effective metal building construction. The concept of low energy consumption of buildings is adopted by the company and becomes a target for the evolution of its products.

Due to the major requirements of the strict regulations of the construction sector, from 2000, the company has implemented and maintained quality control systems and is certified by notified bodies.

At the same time it recognizes the requirements of the construction sector and offers integrated solutions for the construction of buildings with a new production line of structural metal profiles.

In 2004 it builds a new panel production line. In this case the product, the mineral wool sandwich panel combines thermal insulation and fire resistance. In 2004 it builds a new panel production line. In this case the product, the mineral wool sandwich panel combines thermal insulation and fire resistance.

From 2000 until today, it continues to upgrade its equipment with state-of-the-art production machines, with health and safety priority criteria, lower energy consumption, simpler handling and greater efficiency.

In 2009, it establishes the new factory in D. Melissochoriou. The new state-of-the-art polyurethane PIR panel production line makes the company a leader of the industry sector in the domestic market. Automatic control systems and standardized processes ensure the quality and reliability of the line products.

In 2015, new products are integrated such as Roman tile panel and panel with embossed metal faces. They are products with high architectural requirements, without compromising in technical properties of the insulated panels. The company guides and encourages the customers and employees to contribute for the protection of the environment and the slowdown of the climate change.

In 2019, it celebrates “40 years of increasing development”. Today, the company is equipped by a team of engineers that can meet the demanding requirements of construction projects, it has state-of-the-art equipment and well-trained employees, provides fast order service and is ranked first among the industry's leading companies.
