    The Oinofyta-based HALCOR foundry operates using natural gas, thus reducing the air pollutant emissions, and manufactures copper, brass and other alloy billets and slabs. 
    The plant operates in the manufacture of semi-finished products for the Group’s other plants. It includes:
     
    • 2 lines of semi-continuous melting and casting of brass billets (both for lead and pure brass)
    • 1 line for the production of titan-zinc slabs
    • 1 line for the production of slabs made of special alloys
    • 1 line of continuous vertical melting and casting of copper billets
    • 1 line of continuous melting, casting and in-line rolling for the production of Ø8 copper wire.
     
    Specifically, the plant manufactures copper, brass and other alloy billets and slabs. The plant has a copper and copper alloy scrap collection and sorting centre and is certified as per ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, ISO 18001:2007 and OHSAS 18001.
  • Total area: 198,061 m2
    Buildings: 67,414 m2
    Production capacity: 75,000 tons annually
     
    The Group’s copper tubes plant in Oinofyta is involved in copper billet processing and manufactures the following products:
     
    • Copper tubes in straight lengths and hard, semi-hard or soft coils.
    • Coated copper tubes.
    • Copper tubes for special uses.
     
    These products are a reliable choice, offering solutions used in the construction of heating, water supply, cooling and natural gas transportation networks and in general industrial applications.
     
    The copper tubes plant in Oinofyta has some of the most effective machinery in Europe and figures among the few plants that are able to manufacture tubes with inner grooves and small wall thickness, which are widely used in the production of heat exchangers. 
     
    The facilities are certified as per ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, ISO 18001:2007 and OHSAS 18001.

    Buildings: 23,120 m2
    Production capacity: 40,000 tons annually
     
    The Oinofyta-based plant of FITCO uses hot or cold extrusion techniques and brass scrap as primary raw material and manufactures the following products meeting a number of European and American quality specifications (EN, DIN, BS, NF, ASTM): 
     
    • Solid and hollow brass rods (round - hexagon - square)
    • Solid and hollow brass profiles
    • Brass wire
    • Brass bars
    • Seamless brass tubes of different cross-sections
    • Seamed brass tubes with a circular cross-section (welding with high frequency current)
     
    The plant’s facilities are certified as per ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, ISO 18001:2007 and OHSAS 18001.
