S. MENTEKIDIS S.A. is one of the most dynamic and promising companies in the very important sector of bottled water. It was founded in 1992, with the first bottling being carried out one year later with water from the Assos spring, located in Seli Vermiou.
Today, the company has two production sites, in Spilia of Kozani (SELI water) and in Karitsa of Pieria (DIOS water). In response to the high demand of its products and despite the adverse conditions, it invested EUR 8.7 million in the creation of state-of-the-art facilities at the DIOS plant, which will ensure a high-quality product fully compliant to international standards, and will give to S. MENTEKIDIS S.A. the opportunity to realize its ambitious plans and realize its goals.
AS HELLAS undertook the upgrading of the production lines in Karitsa, and the reorganization of the production process where necessary.
The key objectives were to rationalize the production process, to further ensure the quality of the final product, to reduce the production operating costs, to increase the capacity (by adding a new filling machine), and to centrally control the entire installation from a central SCADA system.
Due to the high demand for “DIOS” water and the continuous operation of the plant, the project was carried out step by step. AS HELLAS, with many years of experience in upgrading facilities without interrupting the production schedule, was the right partner for the execution of the project.
