History Timeline


In 1902, we laid the foundations of TITAN and, since then, we have been growing steadily. With a deep sense of respect for our employees, society and the environment and an enduring commitment to our work, our principles and our vision, we have been writing a Greek story with global reach.


TITAN is founded with the opening of the first cement plant in Elefsina, Greece. It is the first cement-producing unit in Greece.


The company becomes a Société Anonyme under the name "TITAN Cement S.A.".


TITAN is listed on the Athens Stock Exchange.


TITAN workforce is insured against occupational accidents, a pioneering decision at the time.


The Elefsina plant is powered using own-produced electricity.


First cement exports, to Brazil.


A Christmas bonus to employees is introduced, twenty years before it became mandatory in Greece under statutory law. In 1938, TITAN introduces an Easter bonus for its workforce.


The Elefsina plant is refurbished and new rotary kilns are installed.


During World War II, the Company’s exports are suspended, bringing TITAN's international expansion to a halt. This is a time, however, when the Company consolidates its business in Greece. TITAN resumes its export operations in the late 1940s, boosting the production of the Elefsina plant. In 1957, TITAN's exports make up 52% of the Company’s sales and approximately 50% of the country's total exports in cement.



White cement is produced and distributed in Greece and abroad.


The post of occupational doctor is created at the Elefsina plant and a staff health check-up plan is set up.


In parallel with investing in its growth, TITAN takes action to protect the environment and installs the first environmentally friendly electrostatic filters in Greece.


TITAN’s second cement plant is established in Efkarpia, Thessaloniki. 


The post of social worker is created in all plants, paving the way for a new institution in Greece.


TITAN sets up its own blood bank, supported by employee voluntary blood donation.


Production begins in the Company's third cement plant in Drepano, Achaia. In 1971, a new production unit is added to the plant and production is trebled.


The company's fourth cement plant comes into operation in Kamari, Viotia.


Accident Prevention Staff Committees are set up at TITAN's plants 10 years before pertinent legislation is passed in Greece. The Company also introduces Occupational Safety Awards.


"INTERBETON Construction Materials S.A." is founded, for the production, transportation and trading of concrete.


The Group begins to expand and currently operates cement plants in 10 countries. The most recent acquisition is that of an equity stake in the Brazilian cement manufacturer Companhia Industrial de Cimento Apodi (2016).
