Hellenic Halyvourgia Suspends Operations in Central Greece

April 14, 2020

VOLOS, Greece – Hellenic Halyvourgia, a rolling-mill and wire mesh plant, on Tuesday announced it was suspending its operations due to a lack of raw materials and a reduction in new orders. The production factory located in Volos, Thessaly, informed its roughly 300 workers of its decision and said it will place them under the emergency support measures announced by the government as part of the lockdown.

Hellenic Halyvourgia is the second large steel mill in the Volos region after SOVEL that is suspending its operations. Its factory in Volos covers an area of 145.000 square metres. Since 1963, the Volos unit has achieved steady growth in production capacity. By installing a new rolling-mill and a state-of-the-art wire mesh plant, the unit’s annual capacity in finished products is over 600,000 tons.
