Stages of development 1962 - 2017
In 1962 Sidenor was established as Viohalco - Sanitas. Today Sidenor is a vertically integrated Group of companies with production plants in Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, FY-ROM and Australia.
The establishment in Southeast Europe started in 2001 with the acquisition of the Bulgarian plant Stomana Industry, in which Sidenor Group makes continual investments aiming to increase its production capacity, improve quality, decrease production costs and also manufacture high added value products.
In 1999, Sovel started production at its rolling mill and in the second half of 2001 the steel melting plant.
In 2006, Sidenor Group strengthened even further its presence in the Balkan market by setting up Dojran Steel in FYROM, which runs a long steel products and mesh plant, mainly for the markets of FYROM and Kosovo.
From 2007 to 2011 a wide commer-cial network is developed in Serbia (Sidebalk Steel), Albania (Sideral Steel) and Romania (Siderom Steel) in order to fully meet the needs of the local markets and the wider area.
2007 - 2011
As part of Sidenor's ongoing in-vestment plan to achieve enhanced quality and product innovations, the installation of the new Vacuum Degasser - VD was successfully completed at the Stomana Industry plant in Bulgaria and also the con-struction and the operation of an induction furnace for the reheat-ing of billets at the Sidenor and Sovel production plants.Major rolling mill revamping in Dojran Steel plant for the pro- duction of a wide range of mer-chant bars.
2013 - 2017
nts for the last 15 years 860million
In the context of its production activities, the Group operates industrial plants in Greece (Thessaloniki and Almyros), in Bulgaria (Pernik), in Romania (Bucharest), in FYROM (Nikolic) and in Australia (Brisbane). It also operates sale offices and distribution units. The Groups plants cover all stages of production, processing and distribution for an extensive range of steel products. The combination of high technology equipment and highly trained plant staff enables the production of high-quality products at competitive costs so Sidenor is a leading player in local and international markets.
The state-of-the-art production plants and an extended sales and ware-housing network, developed over the years, allow prompt response to international customer needs.
